Last week I posted my video interview with Pat Flynn for the Productive! Magazine issue 21 and today let me tell you a little more about our newest issue of your favorite (and free) productivity magazine. It's jam-packed with fantastic productivity advice thanks to our amazing contributors. I'm so proud of what our team prepared for you:
Getting laid off was a blessing in disguise?
I really enjoyed my interview with Pat Flynn — a serial entrepreneur for whom getting laid off was the best thing that ever happened to him. Only then did he found out how to run business and earn money and be able to spend the majority of time with his family and on the stuff he likes:
"The passive income part was very much inspired by Tim Ferris’s The 4-Hour Workweek and his ability to put systems and automation into his businesses. The idea is that you don’t have to be present in order for transactions to happen."
I totally get what Pat is talking about. Nozbe works the same way - I don't have to be there waiting to greet each and every new customer who signs up, although I'd really like to :-)
But there's more:
Tuesday, February 25
Back in 2007 I launched Nozbe because I wanted to "scratch my own itch" and build a productivity tool that I'd want to use every day. Turns our I wasn't the only one. I felt it wasn't enough. I gave people a fantastic tool to get things done, but we all needed more than that. We needed inspiration and useful tips and tricks... and this is how the Productive! Magazine was born... and last week we've taken it to the next level:
Productive! Magazine is now a "monthly"... and is going places
When last year we relaunched the magazine we decided to make it a regular, monthly mag. I explained that in one of my shows. Well, we missed January, mostly because of me being too busy and not making the interviews on time... but we've learned our lesson and now we're back with issue #17 with Brian Tracy for February and issue #18 with Scott Belsky for March... and we have a whole lineup of interviewees for the future issues...
But that's not everything - we're converting Productive! Magazine into a global franchise with magazines in different languages! Now, that's really exciting:
Friday, February 7
Yes, I know, we're a little late with the January issue of our Productive! Magazine but I assure you it was worth the wait. I decided to do a live interview with Brian Tracy as I was very impressed when I met him at a conference I was attending. Here's the issue 17:
You can read the Productive! Magazine in three ways:
- on your Mac or Windows PC (on our web site)
- on the iPhone or iPad - get our app
- on the Android phone or tablet - get our app - new!
Anyway, won't bore you with more details, suffice to say in this issue you'll find not only an inspiring interview with Brian but also some amazing articles by the best productivity bloggers on the Internet - enjoy!
As always, your favorite productivity magazine is sponsored by Nozbe - your favorite time and project management suite of apps that helps you get things done every single day :-)
Question: What did you like about this new issue?
Wednesday, January 15
As I mentioned in my last post one of my team's biggest achievements in 2013 was re-launching Productive! Magazine as an iPhone and iPad app. And our plans were even more ambitious than that. We also wanted to have an Android app and today we're launching your favorite productivity magazine on Android platform
As you know I'm a big fan of Apple iGadgets but I also had Android devices in the past and although I don't approve of Google's privacy policies I believe in choice and if one prefers an Android phone or tablet I'll be more than happy to oblige. After all, we've been having Nozbe Android apps for quite some time now.
Productive! Magazine 17 soon!
We'll soon reveal our 17th issue of our magazine so stay tuned and if you want to make sure you'll get it on time, please visit our Productive! Magazine site and get our apps. Thanks to Nozbe's sponsorship I can offer you the inspiration and advice of the best productivity experts on the internet for free :-)
Question: Are you reading Productive magazine? Why? Why not? How do you read it? On which device?

We are back with a brand new issue of the Productive! Magazine and this time I invited a good friend of mine and a fellow GTDer ("Getting Things Done" follower) - Augusto Pinaud - the author of the Amazon best-selling book: "25 tips for Productivity".
Issue #14 with Augusto Pinaud
or if you have an iPad get the magazine to your iPad from the App Store
In this issue you'll find my interview with him along with many other great articles by some of the best experts in productivity like Craig Jarrow ("Time Management Ninja"), Laura Stack ("Productivity Pro®"), Graham Allcott, Robert Terson, Maura Nevel Thomas, Mike St. Pierre and yours truly.
And on the side note... I just merged "Productive Firm" and "MichaelNozbe" blogs to one site... hope you like the result. More on that later :-) Now enjoy the magazine, it's been a blast making it for you!
P.S. I'd like to thank Augusto and all the contributors of this issue for fantastic articles and inspiration, Wojtek, Piotr, Lori, James and Delfina for making the issue happen and Tom, Radek and Bartek for the amazing work on this new web site :-)

Last week we launched the latest issue of the Productive! Magazine with Graham Allcott on the cover and my interview with him about the concepts behind his new book where he explains how to become a "Productivity Ninja" :-)
Here's the cover:

Magazine is free (I only ask for an email address)
Magazine will always be free. I do it because I love doing it and I love getting to know new people in my "productivity industry" and for this issue I received many great new contributions and connected with some amazing folks.
The only change I did this time is that from now on, to download the latest issue I do ask you to sign up for our Newsletter. This ensures that I can email you about new issues and stay in touch. I decided it's time to build a great "productivity community" and this is how I'm getting started.
Let me know what you think! And who to include next?
Each issue I get to interview someone really cool. This time it was a person I knew before, a good friend and a real "productivity ninja" - Graham Allcott. To learn all about him, get the magazine and watch this short interview I did with him:
