📙 Magazine

I used to be the editor of the Productive! Magazine between 2008 and 2016 (34 issues), also in Polish (18 issues), Dutch (5 issues), Spanish (4 issues) and Japanese (1 issue) as a part of my now shut-down Remag startup.


📙 №34 with Greg McKeown - the last (essential) issue of the Productive! Magazine

Thursday, March 16, 2017 /productivemag/

From the editor of the Productive! Magazine №34 with Greg McKeown: Do you know that this is the last time we meet here? This issue of Productive! Magazine marks the end of our series. All the archive editions will be certainly kept online so that you can always come back to your favorite articles and recommend them to the people who might need some inspiration or advice. In this post I’ll explain why and how we’re finishing off our magazine:

🎤 📙 📽 🎬 Interview with Greg McKeown on Essentialism - Productive! Magazine’s last interview (issue #34)

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 /greg-mckeown/

I’ve been a long-time fan of the book: Essentialism - the disciplined pursuit of less. I read the book twice and I wanted to have its author, Greg McKeown, as a cover interview for the Productive! Magazine - and just we’ve decided to shut down our magazine, we managed to get him on - which gives us the best farewell ever - we’re focusing on what’s essential for us (Nozbe) and appreciate what we had and experienced with the magazine, and closing the magazine down with a double-message of essentialism:

📙 📽 🎬 How to write. Fast. Interview with Sean Platt for the Productive! Magazine 32

📙 Get focused in 5 simple steps - intro to Productive! Magazine No.32 with Sean Platt

Wednesday, March 23, 2016 /productivemag32/

The new issue of Productive! Magazine has just been published. I hope you find an article that will prove really timely for you and that will help you stay in control of your time. Right – time. Because time is your most precious resource. It’s one of those few things you simply can’t get back no matter what you do. We both know that the real key here is not the amount of hours you stay at work, but how you actually use this time. Efficiency, process optimization and persistence are very important. And so is the focus!

📙 Workflow optimization - intro to Productive! Magazine No.31 with Grace Marshall

Thursday, December 10, 2015 /prodmag-31/

Optimization is a really popular term nowadays, and I guess because of that its meaning has faded and lost some of its value. It’s a pity, because I see optimization as one of the crucial elements of productivity. It lets me save time and effort and maintain the quality of my work.

This is the Editor’s Note that I wrote for 31st issue of Productive! Magazine. See how you can use the workflow optimization rules employed in plants and factories to improve your personal productivity and team effectiveness.

Monday, August 10, 2015 /prodmag-30/

More and more often, people go on about how busy they are as a reply to a simple “How are you” question. It becomes uncomfortable for me to listen to this. I don’t like it. We’re all busy, right?

This is the Editor’s Note that I wrote for 30th issue of Productive! Magazine. Learn, what has helped me focus on the essential stuff and get more things done that matter.
