Brief interruption.

It’s important to understand your preferred learning style and go all in on that learning style (vs. struggling / procrastinating as you force a non-preferred learning style)

Twitter is an invaluable resource for product people, much better than LinkedIn content.

Use it, and tell your PM friends to use it too.

But whom to follow?

I’m a fan of product/UI/strategy teardowns as a way to "learn-by-doing".

One teardowns resource I’ve recommended for a while is https://t.co/BSeVzFZSNG

There are a few out there (fellow PMs, please share more teardown resources below).

Lastly:

Be sure you want to be a PM. It’s a great role. I love it.

But PM isn’t the “step up” that ppl think it is.

There are other paths to success.

So choose it for the right reasons & be open to cutting your losses if you find out it isn’t for you

All the best!
