Jack Dorsey Tips, the creator Twitter and Square, about creating a successful startup: how "it is necessary" and how "it is impossible"
Jack Dorsey, the creator Twitter and the Square mobile payment system, made a report on Y Combinator’s Startup School – start-up school. A successful businessman and innovator told about how to find motivation to create his own team and establish a company. "You will not be able to create nothing without common efforts and goals," Dorsey says, you will just start fluctuate and do nothing that has no definite time frames. ".
The Dorsei report was attended by the thoughts of famous teachers, and some interesting techniques that help organize themselves and start their business.
In his report, Jack Dusi mentioned the book of Robert Henry, American realistic artist and teacher. Dorsey held a parallel between Henry’s thoughts from the book "Spirit of Art" and his thoughts about startup. The founder of Twitter believes that entrepreneurs must build what they want, and at the same time be sure to have a goal.

Some thoughts Rapporteur Bill Walsh "The Score Takes Care of ItSelf", focusing on leadership. Dorsey believes that If an entrepreneur can not be the best in his growing company, he will lose a lot.
Focus on yourself and do not allow anyone to take what you have built.
Most of his half-hour report Dorsey told about how the thoughts and ideas of ingenious teachers can be applied to startups. One of the interesting practices that he advised future start-ups is to create a list of delegations for self-organization.
Here are some points from the list of Jack Dursi himself:
- Stay in present, without concentrating in the past or future.
- Be vulnerable: Do not hide your mistakes and fears from people.
- Drink only water with lemon juice and red wine.
- Every day do six approaches to 20 squats and pushups, run three miles, meditate on this list, stand straight, 10 minutes keep heavy bag.
- Hello with everyone.
- Sleep at least 7 hours a day.
But the list "Cannot":
- Do not dive.
- Do not be late.
- Don’t expect anything that you are not going to fulfill.
- Not sugar.
- On weekdays do not drink beer and strong drinks.
Dorsey says that creating such a list, people already form healthy behaviors that, in turn, will help them live more correctly and better. And when all "necessary" and "you can not" are going together, in one list, a person clears his consciousness from unnecessary noise and can focus on things that are really important.
According to Dorsey, all the staff Twitter and Square wrote such lists "necessary" and "it is impossible" to revise and update their attitude to the organization.
