To have a productive day…

You have to start it right. This is why a properly designed and executed “morning routine” is so important. We talk about it on two last episodes of The Podcast with Radek. In episode 34 we share our ideal morning routines and in episode 35 I confess I’m doing really good with mine. How is your morning routine going?

But there's more to a happy life than just a morning routine:

Time flies! We're already in February of this New Year of 2016 and I've just celebrated 9 years of running Nozbe. And when people ask me what's next for me, I tell them: I'm just getting started.

Me celebrating 9 years of Nozbe

How was 2015 for you?

This is how it went for me - in a nutshell, pretty stable but with some things that definitely need improvement.

One of the things I decided to focus on is the "No Office" theme on my blog. After all, in my company there is no office - we all work remotely and I believe many people and companies can learn from us and everything we've tested running an all-remote team.

For this reason I started a publication on Medium, called "No Office". Let me know what you think!

What are your goals for 2016?

Hope you'll find advice there on planning your goals for this year. We have still 11 months left in 2016 so it's still not too late to get your goals in order and start achieving them!

More advice for you in my podcast:

If you prefer listening to reading, I do recommend you check out the latest episodes of "The Podcast" where we talked about our goals for this year, diets, fitness habits and shared some behind-the-scenes info about our Nozbe 3.0 launch

Review your goals this weekend

Hope this newsletter was useful for you. Please take your time to review your goals for 2016 this weekend and if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment under and of the posts mentioned in this newsletter and let me know!

Today is the 1st day of December, so your thoughts might already be focused on Christmas and the New Year. Yes, 2016 is coming. Pretty soon. I'm the same. I'm also wrapping things up and getting ready to sum up the year and focus on the new one. Hope you'll find these updates really helpful:

✔ Need your opinion on my blogging every day… and my new productivity video course

Note: This post is a transcript of my "Passionate Productivity" newsletter which I send to people who read my book "It's all about Passion!" - if you want to be receiving emails from me in the future, get the book by signing up - thank you!

Michael Sliwinski here, the author of the book: “It’s All About Passion” and the CEO of Nozbe. It’s been a while (actually 3 months) since I’ve written to you, so I wanted to touch base and let you know what I was up to this Summer here in Europe. I’d like to ask you for feedback on two things: my regular blogging and my new free video productivity series. Here goes:

Blogging+Course

I’ve been blogging every weekday for the last 3 months, did you like it?

After I only posted once in May, I started writing regularly in June and I’ve been continuing in July and August… and now we’re in September and I keep writing every weekday on my blog. It’s been great so far. It gives me an opportunity to share and “ship” something valuable to you every day. I intend to keep doing that, but I’d like to know if you like it this way.

Do you think I should keep the pace? Do you like my posts? (if you haven’t been to my blog, come over to Sliwinski.com, read a few last posts and let let me know.)

Do you have a perfect Digital Productivity System?

This summer time gave me a few moments to breathe and also think about my whole “productivity business”. Even though there are many productivity systems out there and Nozbe is facing lots of competition from all over the world, I’ve come to realize that our biggest competitor is “non-consumption”.

A while ago, when you downloaded my book on passion, you agreed I could email you every now and then, so I'm sending you this short message today to give you an opportunity to:

AMA - Ask Me Anything - just reply to this email!

Passionate Productivity Newsletter

Last month we had a big Nozbe promo celebrating our 8 years in business. It ended precisely on my birthday (May 20) so I decided to give my Nozbe customers a few gifts, and one of them was an invitation to “ask me anything”.

And they did! I responded to hundreds of emails with questions from people from all over the world! It was amazing.

✔ What did you think about my book "It's all about passion!"?

Note: This post is a transcript of my "Passionate Productivity" newsletter which I sent to people who read my book "It's all about Passion!" - if you want to be receiving emails from me in the future, get the book by signing up - thank you! I received lots of amazing replies and I'll try to share some gems with you here later!

Hi there, I'm Michael Sliwinski and a little over a year ago, to celebrate my 35th birthday, I published a book about 7 types of passion I discovered when running my productivity startup - Nozbe.

Remember my book? Thanks for taking your time to read it! I appreciate it so much! More than 6000 people got to read it and you're one of them!

passionbook

I asked you to give me your email address... but I never actually got back to you. The typical excuse: I was too busy running my company.

Well, now I decided to start writing to you. To establish a conversation. To get to know your passionate stories... and to tell you what I'm doing with my life to keep uncovering hidden passions in me.
