Things users don’t care about

Product Management can be a tough job. With the goal/Feature/function/product in mind, a very long way has to be gone at times. This makes us proud. However, the user of the product probably does not care at all. Pete Warden pointed out Things users don’t care about:

  • How long you spent on it.
  • How hard it was to implement.
  • How clean your architecture is.
  • How extensible it is.
  • How well it runs on your machine.
  • How great it will be once all their friends are on it.
  • How amazing the next version will be.
  • Whose fault the problems are.
  • What you think they should be interested in.
  • What you expected.
  • What you were promised.
  • How important this is to you.

So we all need to stop boasting or bickering and focus on what users do care about.
