On Life: Jack Dorsey’s Got it Right

image source: wired.co.uk

If you don’t know who Jack Dorsey is… go Google him. Jack spoke recently at Y Combinator’s Startup School and Techcrunch was there to later transcribe Jack’s memorable (for me at least) Do and Don’t List – advice which he tries to follow daily. I thought I’d share since today has been one of those days… yeah know? When you just want to give up? But don’t! I won’t!


  • Stay present
  • Be vulnerable
  • Drink only lemon water and red wine
  • Six sets of 20 squats and push-ups every day
  • Run for 3 miles
  • Meditate on this list
  • Stand up straight
  • Spend 10 minutes with a heavy bag
  • Say hello to everyone
  • Get 7 hours of sleep


  • Don’t avoid eye contact
  • Don’t be late
  • Don’t set expectations that you can’t meet
  • Don’t eat sugar
  • Don’t drink hard liquor or beer during the weekday
