Hello, I’m Michael Sliwinski, founder of Nozbe - to-do app for teams. I write essays, books, work on projects and I podcast for you using #iPadOnly in #NoOffice as I believe that work is not a place you go to, it’s a thing you do. More…

🏠 Office

The gradual yearly evolution of my personal home office, from back in 2008 till now - this is the room where it happens.


🏝 🏠 Perfect zoom meeting setup or streaming kit in my new home office

Thursday, November 25, 2021 /streaming/

Last year I read a blog post by Matt Mullenweg - the founder of Wordpress where he explained his high-quality streaming setup - he revised this post this year with more updates. Later I read a similar post by Seth Godin. As I do quite a few interviews, record podcasts and have some zoom meetings with my Nozbe team, I decided to upgrade my setup, too. I explained some of it in my latest “office update” post but here are more details:

🏠 My new home office for 2022 with professional recording gear

Thursday, November 18, 2021 /office22/

I’ve spent lots of time setting up my home office for 2021 and I was really happy with my setup… until I started recording No Office podcast and talked to quite a few professionals about recording podcasts and videos. That’s when I decided to start upgrading everything. I’ve also changed my windows, moved my desk to a different place and added new gear… and I’m very happy with the result:

🏠 Home office for 2021 with dedicated recording corner

Tuesday, April 13, 2021 /office21/

As I mentioned recently, I love tinkering in my home office. Just look at all my past blog posts about it. Even though I updated my home office as early as last year, the pandemic and the increasing number of podcasts like NoOfficeFM and interviews I’m doing made me tinker a little more and create a dedicated space for recording and online meetings. Here it is:

🏠 Tinkering, building, crafting… and cables in my home office

Wednesday, March 17, 2021 /tinkering/

I love tinkering. Manual crafts always attracted me. I love building lego blocks and I definitely have enjoyed changing and re-designing my home offices many times over the years. Just look at the details of my current one. And yet, I’m about to improve it even more! Here’s the photo from today with all the materials brought in to start working on it this coming Friday:

🏠 I hope my home office for 2020 will inspire you to set up your workspace!

Friday, September 11, 2020 /myoffice/

Ever since I started Nozbe I have been redesigning my home office on almost yearly basis and documenting that on my blog. In the last few years I have been tweaking it only slightly but last year I finally decided to do a proper makeover and here’s the result. Hope you like it and it inspires you to redesign your own home office.

🏠 I’ve seen the future of a modern office workplace and it is 💩

Sunday, April 19, 2020 /workplace/

I love documentaries. Just as last week I watched Rams this week I watched the Workplace and boy, I have thoughts on this. I suffered through this film as I watched how a wealthy design firm is creating their new offices with a help of a famous architect firm. Basically they are building a design marvel that will achieve anything but help their team members get stuff done. I cringed throughout the movie, here’s why:

🏠 📱 What’s on my desk? Here’s my re-designed stand up desk for 2020.

Thursday, January 23, 2020 /desk/

I’m slowly finishing off my Home office renovation which I mentioned in my previous post. I just upgraded my good trusty IKEA stand-up desk (model: Bekant) by getting a new bamboo table top (model: Hilver) - it’s wider and shallower than my previous one so there’s more space for my iPad Pro. Now that it’s set up, let me show you what I’ve got there so hopefully it serves as an inspiration to you:

🏠 My Home Office for 2020 - prototyping new ideas

Wednesday, December 11, 2019 /office20/

The 2019 is ending and it’s time for a major overhaul of my Home Office. I’ve been thinking about it for quite a while now, but I couldn’t get around to doing it because I wasn’t 100% sure about what I wanted. I was procrastinating. Then, I realized I don’t have to do it all at once - I can do it in stages - I can move things around and see how the changes feel… and then keep tweaking the ideas. Last week I finished stage 1 - moving the Whiteboard to a different wall… and a few other tweaks. Here goes:
