Why good Product Managers are never busy

Good Product Managers understand that ‘busy’ is the enemy. They make busy a confession, not a boast…. As a Product Manager, it’s common to find oneself spread thinly and overwhelmed by tasks that don’t feel like ‘real’ work.

This is ironic as an ability to prioritise, stack rank and focus intensely on a single goal are critical skills that all Product Managers strive to develop.
