A few years ago, I worked at a web design agency as a product manager. The part of the job I loved the most was working on product with our design team and clients. Unfortunately, this was only about 10 percent of the work that I actually got to do. The majority of the time, I was trying to control the constant flow of stuff—keeping track of meeting notes, searching for files, and trying to stay up-to-date with the latest technology news. I was mentally exhausted.
