From the Editor
I am very happy to offer you this newest, fifth issue of your Productive! Magazine. This is a breakthrough issue as I believe we have nailed the way this magazine will be published in the future and it’s going to be an exciting time for you and for our small team.
We have some really fantastic authors publishing regularly for us and we decided to give you a new issue of the magazine every two months until the end of this year. In December, based on your feedback, readership and the experience gathered publishing this magazine, we’ll decide how often to publish issues in 2011.
We want to give you more productivity-related content, not only with this magazine but also through short videos, additional in-depth articles and books. This is why we have launched a new productivity membership site called Productive! Firm and both this magazine and my Productive! Show will now be a part of this site. I’m sure you’ll love it.
Members of Productive Firm will also receive more scoop before the magazine gets published, will be able to read the entire, uncut interview with each issue’s guest and more. Speaking about our guests, this time we decided to try something different and you probably don’t know the person on the cover of the magazine. But believe me, you want to get to know him.
I got many emails from people saying I focus too much on celebrities like David Allen and Guy Kawasaki… and I should be interviewing people who are highly productive… but are regular people like you and me. So I chose one of my closest friends and one of the most famous Spanish sculptors — Miguel Guía.
Luis Miguel Urrea Guía (that’s his complete name) is a sculptor, an artist who also runs a series of successful companies in Madrid, Spain. We used to work closely together on some projects and I was always amazed how he got stuff done. He quickly became my productivity guru and actually he inspired me to build the first version of Nozbe — my GTD productivity app. In the interview Miguel Guía explains his way of approaching productivity and cultivating good habits that help him get more done.
Continuing the theme of successful entrepreneurs and productivity in small companies, we’ve got great articles by our regular contributors like Leo Babauta (who was our featured guest in the last issue of the magazine), Michael Hyatt, Art Carden…..
Hope you like the new changes to the magazine and how it is coming together. I’m sure you’ll love this issue of your favorite productivity magazine and now, without further ado I encourage you to prepare a beverage of your choice,sit in a comfortable armchair, and grab the iPad to read this new issue of the Productive! Magazine. Enjoy!
