3 Rules to Help You Declutter Your Career

As a product manager, my job is as much about deciding what features not to put in a product as it is about what features to add. I might even venture to say it’s sometimes more about what not to put in, or — dare I say it aloud — about what to take out. Stakeholders will bristle when their pet feature is headed for the chopping block, but product managers have to press on, because the simplest and most elegant solutions are often the most powerful. The same goes for your career.

You, too, are a product manager. It may not be your actual job title, but you are the architect and manager of your career. And the last thing you want is a 60% bounce rate on your professional endeavors. Here are three rules of product management to apply to your own career.
