It's Hip to be Square

I was worried that the Wall Street Journal Magazine wouldn't continue to excite after editor in chief Deborah Needleman decamped to T magazine.  Luckily, the November Special Innovators Issue I picked up today didn't disappoint. I especially loved reading more about Twitter and Square founder Jack Dorsey.  You can read the entire story here but it was his journal pages that really inspired me.  I'm always busy but I wonder if I could be working smarter.  It's also easy to get discouraged by nasty comments and rude emails.  Jack Dorsey's "field notes" are a reminder to keep my eye on the prize while always striving to do the right thing.

Hi Heather,
Thanks for sharing this. I love the WSJ and sometimes forget to read it online here in France. Thanks for the reminder and the heads up on this particular story.
