Jack Dorsey on Editing His Ideas and Making Twitter + Square Happen

I love how he talks about the intentional, iterative, messy process he was willing to put himself through on the way to fully realizing his ideas. It makes me wonder what ideas are we all having that we’re not giving time enough to mature.

Notice also how clearly he can articulate the human perception of Square towards the end when he describes accepting payment as “primarily social” and articulates very clearly how important it was for him to make Square “trustworthy.” He breaks his ideas down to their atomic center, and then has the clarity to build around them. I’ve seen that pattern in the successful entrepreneurs I’ve gotten the chance to work with, so I think this truly is a pattern.
