image> What is the best career advice you received as you entered product management?

Break big projects into small batches. Get your earliest ideas infront of customers as fast as possible. Build, measure, learn.

> What is the hardest less you learned as a product manager?

Failure is the most likely outcome of any wildly creative endeavor. Go after the thing that is most likely to cause you to fail first. If you make it past that hurdle, you are probably on to something.
