From the Editor

Michael Sliwinski — №9 with Laura Stack

It’s the end of August and we’re delivering (as promised) the issue №9 of your favorite productivity magazine. We’re slowly making sure the magazine is getting more regular and hopefully №10 will appear on your iPad (or computer) right in time for October. Unsurprisingly this issue is about accountability and keeping promises. Let’s keep ours.

Meet Laura Stack

Laura, the Productivity Pro® , is the first woman to be featured on the cover of our magazine, and she’s a fantastic person. She’s a regular contributor and has been active in the “productivity industry” for almost two decades. That’s a lot for a person who’s barely in her forties.

We had a great chat, and I learned a lot from her. We obviously share the same passion for productivity and the great Zig Ziglar has been an inspiration for both of us, too. We’ll also dive into the principles behind Laura’s latest book, “SuperCompetent” as she explains how everyone can get a grade A on the competence and productivity real-life test. One of the keys to this is… you guessed it: Accountability.

The main theme of the magazine is reinforced with other articles from our great contributors: Art Carden reviews his new favorite book “The Promise Doctrine”, Francis Wade explains how we should move to Time Management 2.0, Graham Allcott and yours truly give you two different (yet somehow similar) ways to approach your morning, Leo Babauta explains his minimalist mindset (a recent inspiration of mine), Chris Edgar wants us to be accountable to ourselves by digging out our inner productivity, and Mike Vardy, as always, finishes up with a humorist approach to productivity, explaining his conversion to Eventualism.

Promise me to share this magazine :-)

No, you don’t have to do that. However I’d appreciate it very much if you sent this magazine to your friends and family and recommend our iPad app to your fellow iPad-owning-colleagues.

Yours productively,
Michael Sliwinski
