The Podcast is a weekly conversation between Michael (our CEO) and Radek (Nozbe VP Apple.) Usually they talk about books, business, productivity, technology and more. In September our hosts focused on resolving conflicts, paper going dead and cutting down on what’s “good”, but not good enough.
113: Don’t be creepy
If you’re a doctor or a lawyer, you have an ethical obligation to do the right thing for your patient or client. Why aren’t software developers held to the same standard?
112: Pursuit of Essentialism
Today, we discuss the book Essentialism by Greg McKeown.
The goal: designing a simpler, more focused life. Doing less, but better. Cutting down on what’s “good”, but not good enough.
111: Death to Paper
Michael explains how he uses Evernote. This was going to be a boring episode about note taking. Turns out, this is a powerful system that completely removes the need for storing paper. All of the 13,000 notes, documents, receipts, health records, are accessible and searchable anywhere. Whoa.
110: Non-Violent Communication
In this episode, our hosts discuss Non-Violent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg: Resolving conflicts with other people, taking responsibility for your own life, finding empathy for yourself..
Related topic: Deep Work (Ep. 46)
We live very distracted lives and most of our working days are filled with shallow tasks and interruptions. In this age when more and more jobs are being automated, we can get a competitive edge if we get good at performing deep work — important work at high levels of attention.
Unfortunately, our environments don’t support it, and shallow work is just easier. We discuss the topic — ideas, and strategies from the book “Deep Work” in achieving a more productive work life.
Don’t be shy!
