Binks the Product Management Cat

In his 44 cat years (7 human years), Binks has become a masterful Product Manager. Here he shares his biggest lessons.

1

Get into a routine.

Predictability reduces stress and helps you do the things that are important to you.

2

Build a network.

A network gives you support when you need it, advice when you ask for it, and treats when you beg persistently. Don't tell dad, but I visit two other families for treats most days.

3

Can't control it? Don't sweat it.

If something is stressing you out but you can't control it, do what I do; sigh really loudly, eat something comforting, and nap it off.

4

Recognise your successes.

I'm the best at hoarding sticks. No other cat comes close. It might sound like arrogance at first, but it isn't. Your own self-disbelief will hold you back.

5

Rest.

You don't sleep enough. Sleep more. 18 hours a day will do the trick.
