Managing two of today’s hottest start-ups simultaneously? That’s a feat that could overwhelm even some of the corporate world’s biggest egos.
Somehow, Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of microblogging service Twitter and mobile payment company Square, is managing to pull it off, putting in 8 hour days at each of the two companies every day, without collapsing into a pile of jello.
How does he do it?
The key, Dorsey explained, is to “theme” his workdays, with each day of the week dedicated to specific matters. Below is the schedule of Dorsey’s grueling workweek, as explained at the conference:
Monday: Focus on Management and running the company — Directional meeting at Square, Op Com meeting at Twitter. Dorsey also has his management one-on-ones on Monday.
