If you are the kind of person who can’t imagine work without a cup of coffee, this post is for you. Caffeine can work even better than you think and it may increase your efficiency. Let me show you how.

Upcoming Nozbe 3.6 and iOS 11 - a sneak peek at Siri and Drag&Drop

In this short video (3 minutes only!) I decided to give you a sneak peek at the future of Nozbe: see how in the current production version - Nozbe 3.5.2 you can already use Drag and Drop on an Apple device like iPad or iPhone on a beta version of iOS11... and in the new upcoming version 3.6 you’ll be able to use Siri to add tasks with voice!


Nozbe 3.6 is coming in September...

...and not only do we want to get advantage of some of the goodies offered to us by Apple on iOS11... but we’re also working hard on new improvements to Nozbe on all other platforms, including some major improvements for Android OS with Google Assistant support and more... so stay tuned and if you’re brave enough - get our beta version of Nozbe 3.6. Thanks!

7 ways to be a better colleague

This is a guest post by Nozbe Ambassador Mike St. Pierre. Mike's blog explores the intersection of purpose and productivity.

We have all had difficult colleagues. You know, those peers that cause you to roll your eyes and complain when they are not around. Difficult colleagues make work harder and create even more headaches for the person who has to manage her/him.

How to tackle a never-ending to-do list - 10 proven methods

Recently we heard this from a Nozbe user:

Hi. With Nozbe I became much more productive. So productive, that I have the feeling that what I have to do never ends. I do so many things that before I would have left out and when something is done, there's always many things to be done again. So it never stops. Would be great to have a blog post to discuss this topic, have your point of view and tips to continue to have a work-life balance when you have such a powerful productivity tool in your hands :-).

And so, here are 10 ways to deal with a never-ending to-do list. Follow these tips and enjoy some more free time.

What I've wasted my time on today. And you?

It's Tuesday evening. I called it a day and grabbed a book since I could finally go to bed. Although the book is super interesting I can't focus on it at all. I keep thinking about how unproductive I've been today...

And voilá! Here's a list of things I tend to waste my time on. I wrote it down in order to try to eliminate some silly cases of negligence and counter-productive habits. I hope you’ll make your list too, and try to work on crossing a few or them out.
