Personal lessons from the product world
- Rely on user feedback: listen to feedback from those around us (co-workers, friends, family) to identify areas for self-improvement.
- Set deadlines: set your own deadlines for self-improvement. Goal setting is a crucial element in both product and personal improvement.
- Identify unique differentiators: identify what no one else in your company is doing and then build the skills and expertise to help your company succeed in that area.
- Go agile - take small steps toward your goal, one after the other, to ensure that you will get there eventually.
