Being a Product Manager requires structured & organized thinking. Frameworks & toolkits are a handy & effective way to approach problems. Product Managers will learn about many & develop their own throughout their product careers.

Main takeaways:
- Self-management is more critical than ever. "On/Off Time Balance" is more important than "Work/Life Balance." Prioritize YOUR TIME, not just your products.
- Learn to be OK with not being a visionary. Remote PM is about patience, execution, & helping the visionaries grow their visions by choosing when/how to engage. We should celebrate the PMs that grow the curve as much as the ones who originated the idea. We don't have the luxury of winning over the room & building that kind of emotional momentum. Make the most of your work trips & face the time when you have it to lay seeds of your vision.
- Passive emotional intelligence & understanding what motivates your team can navigate strategy better than data (but certainly keep data in the story), particularly on zoom calls from afar
