4. My product manager is wrong, I would do it better

4. My product manager is wrong, I would do it better

It can be challenging to plan every detail of the project. 

From a product manager view you have to think about the limitations of the technology, you have to think about users who will use your product, you cannot forget about business and marketing requirements and so on.

Sometimes, some of the requirements aren't known at the beginning; sometimes business circumstances change, and sometimes you have to build something first to figure out it can be done better.

Important note: product managers make mistakes as programmers make bugs.

Instead of trying to show how wrong they are, you should focus on finding solutions.

1. The user is an idiot

The user is not an expert. My doc doesn't require me to know the difference between low-density and high-density lipoproteions. 

Don't assume user should know what kind of browser they use or what is the best flow to use the app. 

But yes, no matter how much you think of it, sometimes...

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Giovanna Scalzone

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
