Once you have X publications make a list of your best Y articles. Put it on your website. The Evans Rule of Publications is to only publish future articles that you expect to replace ones on that list.
As a Junior Faculty member X=Y. If there is a “publish or perish” culture then Y->X. However the Evans Rule applies to those wishing to make a tradeoff between quantity and quality. As you develop more autonomy over your publication goals, Y can fall. Note that this doesn’t mean your best “hits” – it is your subjective judgment about the quality of the paper, regardless of where it is published.
For me X=20 and Y=8. Here are my selection (in chronological order):
