My name is Marcus and I’m a self confessed tech geek with a passion for all things productivity, self Improvement and relaxation. As the author of The little book of Nozbe I’ve helped hundreds of new and experienced Nozbe users get more from Nozbe and improve and enhance their productivity workflows. Nozbe has never let me down. I’ve been a paying Nozbe user for over 5 years, using it every single day. On my blog ProductiveWizard.com I take a look at lots of productivity software. Yet Nozbe is always there as my primary trusted system, running in parallel with other productivity software I am trialling at anytime. Whilst originally designed around the GTD method, Nozbe is very flexible and can accommodate many productivity workflows. It’s shared projects are a fantastic way to work with others. Also, as Nozbe is available on all major platforms I never have to worry if I’m at the office on my Windows PC, at home on my iMac, or out and about on my mobile. I can access Nozbe anywhere easily. There’s no right way to use Nozbe, each user is different. The key for me, is to understand what the user wants Nozbe to accomplish. From a basic todo list, to a full blown GTD system with multiple users, it’s all possible with Nozbe.
