Leonard Cohen's "Ode" has this line: "There is a crack in everything, that's where the light comes in".
Meaning, life is hard to be perfect, but keep your self-confidence. The song "The Greatest Work", classmate Jing thinks it is very Jay Chou, and there is a comment in it that resonates with me very much:
He no longer deliberately pleases anyone, and uses the experience of traveling in Europe to compose the movement that follows his heart the most. From "Fantasy" and "Octave email list Space" to "Still Fantasy" and "Jay Chou's Bedside Story", he has tried his best to squeeze the whimsy and whims of a middle-aged boy with an appearance into the music. A sense of youth is a quality that too many middle-aged musicians lack.
It is true that youthful feeling is a quality that too many middle-aged musicians lack. This song shows that Jay Chou has always been confident on the road of chasing his dreams and chasing his own unique youthful feeling.
Last week, I tutored an intern. She is a graduate of this year. Through communication, I found that she is very strong in logical thinking and communication. She has also interned in Meituan and Tencent, and her product skills are not bad. The university is ranked 39 in the world, which is also a very good institution.
However, the interview results of several of her major factories recently were not very satisfactory, so she was a little discouraged, even self-doubt and denial. After I participated in the review, I found that the previous interview failures had inherent logic. For example, the NIO car software product manager she interviewed, in fact, the new energy field has rigid requirements for the vertical domain knowledge of the automotive industry. These All are limited by objective conditions, not due to product capabilities.
I have also said many times: the essence of applying for a job is job matching, which is to match your product capabilities with the job requirements of the other party. If you fail to apply for a job, it is not necessarily because of your lack of ability. In many cases, your experience does not match. Don't worry, sometimes confidence is more precious than gold. This is especially important for the long-term development of product managers.
