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.

📽 Productive! Show

Collection of my productivity videos which I used to record in the past. Now when I want to post a video, I have a new Team Productivity Show for that, or I just go live on No Office FM podcast.

🎤 📙 📽 🎬 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:

Wednesday, December 28, 2016 /jeff-sanders-podcast/

As you know, I’m a regular podcaster these days. I’ve been publishing video interviews for a while now, but after more than 70 episodes of The Podcast and more than 7000 weekly listeners, I’m all about podcasting! And if you listen to podcasts, you might know my good friend Jeff Sanders whom I interviewed for the episode #102. He had me on his show, 5AM Miracle Podcast - episode 178 over a month ago, so I decided to publish my chat with him, which originally appeared on the Nozbe blog, where he shares his productivity tips for podcasters:

✅ 🎬 📽 Last year’s interview with Marcus Platt on Little Book of Nozbe

Thursday, November 17, 2016 /marcus-platt/

This interview was published last year on our Nozbe YouTube Channel but it’s very relevant still for people trying out getting organized with Nozbe - and it’s an amazing example of why I love what I do, when I get to talk to fans of our work who build something new based on it. This is what Marcus did - he wrote a book about Nozbe Little Book Of Nozbe and a lite version and now updated it to Nozbe 3. In this interview you’ll learn behind the scenes of how the book came to be and what was his motivation to write it and our to help him promote it :-)

🎬 📽 How to motivate #NoOffice employees - Productive! Show #109

Friday, June 17, 2016 /show-motivate/

What motivates people in No Office company? People work for money but not because of money. Give your employees something cool, a purpose to work in your company. Let them make decisions and give them freedom. They should choose how they reach the goal and when they’ll work on that. The key to keep the flow is asynchronous work. The most important thing is that you have to trust your employees. Treat them as partners and adults so they’ll work as adults.
