Welcome to the SocialProductivity Wisdom
f you’re reading this first, inauguralissue of the
Magazine,chances are you’re just like me– a busy professional who just wants to have a happy, productive andmeaningful life.Being overwhelmed by the amountof stuff I had to do and the streams of information I was receiving on a dailybasis, I needed a system to take control of all this. More than a system, I needed a setof practical tips that would help me takecontrol of my life and get more done. Mostof this has been delivered by the bookI read – “Getting Things Done and the Artof Stress-free Productivity” byDavid Allen. The book was still not enough. I neededa tool and some practical tricks and“cheats” that would really make me stayproductive every single day. As I didn’t findthe right tool on the market, I built oneusing my company’s resources and called itNozbe – Simply Get Things Done!”.When my application quickly becamepopular among productivity bloggers,I discovered the wealth of informationprovided by the GTD (Getting Things Done)blog community. I read and bookmarkedmany great articles with very useful tipsand tricks to help me “hack” my life.This is when I found out that eventhough my Nozbe tool was doing a great job at helping people stay productive andfocused, my users needed more than justthis tool. I began preparing a “10-stepSimply Get Things Done course” whichstarted as a series of articles and ended upas a series of videos viewed totally morethan 20,000 times on YouTube. I continuedthe video path with the “2-minuteProductivity Show” video series and peopleloved it. You’ll find out more about thisseries at the end of this magazine.When the idea of a downloadable PDFmagazine came up, I realized this would besomething many of us busy professionals
