Jack Dorsey profile

In this Vanity Fair profile of Twitter/Square founder Jack Dorsey, he’s described as extremely focused (“Dorsey is unusually good at staying focused”), but then it also describes the year he spent learning botanical illustration, the year he spent becoming certified in massage therapy, his interest in fashion design, and his long time interest in transportation logistics. It seems kind of contradictory to me, but really what’s being described is the ability to focus intensely on what’s interesting at the moment. Not a bad thing, just different than extreme focus.
