- written by Michael Sliwinski, Nozbe CEO & Editor of Productive! Magazine

We recently released 19. edition of Productive! Magazine. As you know, we do it regularly and our purpose is to share knowledge, practical advice and inspirations with our readers to keep you all going and help you get things done.

In this issue you’ll find an interview I did with Chris Brogan, best selling author and Publisher/CEO of Owner Magazine, where we talk about freaks taking over the world, Chris' love for business, not for tools and his professional plans:

“I am right on the verge of changing this a little bit. And this change I am about to make is dangerous. I don’t say that to add excitement to our interview. :-)”

In the release, you can also enjoy seven practical articles on addiction to being right, dealing with procrastination, and productivity in a one-person business. Don’t miss that!

Read the new edition as you like.

Productive! Magazine is a free, monthly doze of optimism, inspiration and useful productivity tips. Thanks to our best Nozbe users, we can deliver you all this knowledge every month, make your life more effective and help you in achieving your goals. You can read it on-line here.

Inside the latest issue

We prepared an interview and a set of informative and practical articles for you written by the best productivity and time management coaches and bloggers. Their articles are backed by years of experience and work with clients from all over the world.

Take a quick look into fragments of articles we prepared for you:

  • exclusive interview with Chris Brogan:

“The stranger I became—the weirder I became—the more money I made. The more true I was to who I really was, the more I started making money.”

  • check what you can find for yourseld in article about the addiction to being right by Judith Glaser:

“You’re in a tense team meeting trying to defend your position on a big project and start to feel yourself losing ground. Your voice gets louder. You talk over one of your colleagues and correct his point of view. He pushes back, so you go into overdrive to convince everyone you’re right.”

  • don’t miss Laura Stack on maximizing productivity in your one-person business:

“As a solopreneur, you’ll want to focus on those tasks or activities that you know translate into profits and that only you are capable of doing.”

  • Procrastination: friend or foe? by Gonçalo Gil Mata:

“It’s a system working in your favor! It’s not an enemy. It’s protecting you, based on some inner belief, from whatever bad things you think might result in case you move forward right now.”

  • about a personal time mastery by Jocelyn Coverdale:

“Whenever you catch yourself thinking “I don’t have time to…” the truth is you do. In fact, you have all the time left in your life, and that’s not going to change, but your thinking can.”

  • take it slowly and don’t forget to read The art of slowing down by Grace Marshall:

“In the world of productivity we often talk about getting things done faster, smarter, easier. But what about slower?”

  • and last but not least, how to find a mentor to help you go further, faster by Michael Hyatt:

“I suggest you broaden your definition of mentoring, so you don’t get stuck waiting for something that might not happen.”

Now that’s a wide knowledge and inspiration database :-)
