In his talk at Y Combinator’s Startup School, Twitter chairman and Square co-founder Jack Dorsey expanded on how he consciously reminds himself to make better choices and in turn, be a better person. He calls it a “do and don’t” list.

The Next Web went into details of what he includes on the list:
Here’s some of the items from Jack’s “do” list:
Stay present: don’t focus on the past or the future.
Be vulnerable: show people your mistakes and fears so that they can relate
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
Here’s his “don’ts”:
- Don’t avoid eye contact
- Don’t be late
- Don’t set expectations and not meet them
- Don’t eat sugar
Dorsey maintains the list on his phone and checks it every day and night. It “has been fundamental in establishing patterns for myself,” he said, according to CNET.
