The Gyro Gearloose syndrom
Product managers who don’t know how to say no will suffer the Gyro Gearloose syndrom : they will always come up with new inventions but in the end they will often lack important features and fail. Sad world.
People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully — Steve Jobs
Product Managers must put the things that are not their focus into the periphery.
Ship. Analyze. Prioritize. That’s the Junior Woodchucks way.
