I learned long ago that I kind of suck at blogging. I’m not sure why – the words just didn’t seem to come to me consistently enough for a real blog to make sense. But I still had lots of ideas that I wanted to explore and talk to other people about. And so I would talk – to anyone, anywhere, about a ton of different topics. Almost without fail we’d have this amazing conversation full of discovery and solutions and – more often than not – even more questions.
Then one day I realized that this was the blog. I didn’t have to do it on my own. I just needed to take these interactions with the super smart people around me and write them down. (Or better yet – to get them to write most of it for me.) And so here we are.
I don’t really know what this thing is. There’s no central theme, no consistent point of view, and no moral at the end of the story. Think of it more like wandering through a crowd of PMs and listening in on their conversations. You’ll agree with some and you’ll disagree with others. Some things you’ll hear will contradict what someone else just said. There may even be a yelling match or all-out fisticuffs. It’s all good.
So I encourage you to simply embrace whatever happens here and take it all in. And hey – feel free to throw a punch or two yourself.
