Worry: A Product Manager's Best Friend

Jacques Murphy writes, "I am a person who worries. That has been the case for as long as I can remember. I'm quite sure I'm not the only one. As a Product Manager, you can use the worries described below as an incentive to make your product succeed under the worst of conditions. The key is not to stop at: 'What if something bad happens?' The key is to move past that and figure out what you'll do to protect yourself if your fears come true." Read Worry: A Product Manager's Best Friend by Jacques Murphy.
