📚 This Week's Reading List

Creativity Is a Process, Not an Event by James Clear (7min)
Creative thinking requires our brains to make connections between seemingly unrelated ideas. Even some claim that “I'm just not the creative type” is a pretty weak excuse for avoiding creative thinking. Your creative skills are primarily determined by whether you approach the creative process with a fixed mindset or a growth mindset.

Shipping is a Feature: Some Guiding Principles for People That Build Things by Michael Copeland (6min)
Shipping is a feature. Every PM knows this but it is also the hardest thing to get right. As a PM you throw around things like “the enemy of the good is the perfect” or, well, “shipping is a feature” all the time, yet we all have a hard time getting a product out the door. There’s always more to do to get it right. Once you release the product you begin a new adventure building the next iteration.

What is good retention by Lenny Rachitsky (8min)
Although retention is widely considered to be the most important metric to get right when building (and investing in) a business, it’s also one of the least understood. Why? Because unless you’re a growth expert or an experienced investor, you’re often relying on anecdotes, dated blog posts, and misguided benchmarks. It's the best indicator of product-market fit, it is the most important factor in a user’s lifetime value, and high retention drives all of the best acquisition strategies.
