The best two pieces of advice i will give to all aspiring PM’s from my career journey would be:

* Make your Why clear: Write down why you wanted to be a PM. You often have to answer this to yourself multiple times in your career 🙂

  • Understand PMing is not a job, but a lifestyle: Which means that as a PM you need to prepare your mindset to learn from anything & everything you do. That is the best way you can be a better PM.

Remember those Captchas, Recaptchas, and Select images with street sign prompt?

These are ways to identify if you are a human being + it is also a crowdsourcing mechanism to train AI systems
