Mark Zuckerberg is doing away with New Year’s resolutions like learning Mandarin and overcoming public speaking fears for something more long-term.

The Facebook chief executive announced Thursday in a blog post that he plans to focus on goals in 2020 and beyond.

“Rather than having year-to-year challenges, I’ve tried to think about what I hope the world and my life will look in 2030 so I can make sure I’m focusing on those things,” Zuckerberg wrote.

This shift comes after a trying 2019 for the tech giant. In July, Facebook was fined a record-breaking $5 billion by the Federal Trade Commission for violating consumers’ privacy.

Now, the road ahead looks more like helping small businesses and philanthropic efforts for the next generation.

“By then, if things go well, my daughter Max will be in high school, we’ll have the technology to feel truly present with another person no matter where they are, and scientific research will have helped cure and prevent enough diseases to extend our average life expectancy by another 2.5 years,” he said.
