Honestly? “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck”. I had to learn the hard way how to not take a lot of things personally. I got thrown into an agency’s biggest launch in years and I was only a PM for a week with zero training. (Talk about trial by fire!!!!). Everyone loves to point the finger at the Project Manager and you have to have a strong backbone in order to lead a team, stick to your conviction, stand up when something is wrong and separate personal from business
