Radek and Michael talk about technology, productivity tips, business, publishing, and whatever else comes to mind.
Smart teams work from home
Should we focus Nozbe marketing on Work From Home? Michael has a frank discussion with Radek about this. Maybe it’s a great idea! Or maybe, it’s too niche and will ruin our marketing.
Competition Gossip Corner
Let’s gossip about what our competitors are doing… Basecamp 4, HEY? What are they all about? Are they a threat?
Radek’s Face Shield Factory
Radek has started a job in manufacturing… pro bono manufacturing of face shields for hospitals in Poland.
No, really. Over the last few weeks, Radek has been applying what he’d learned about CAD, laser cutting, and lean manufacturing at the Warsaw Hackerspace to set up a face shield production line.
In three weeks, they produced over 30 000 face shields.
Chat about: kaizen & performance
This episode is a new, experimental format. It’s just Radek calling Michael to chat about work. Like they normally would. Except that it happens to be recorded and published, so you can get a glimpse into how we do it.
In this chat, we’re trying to figure out how to institute cultural change at the company, and make Kaizen part of our everyday work and thinking. Also, Radek’s frustrations with UI work, and change of direction for 2020.
Make a huge impact with just 2 hours per day. Discussing Michael’s latest productivity hack and how this simple change allowed him to be way more productive this year.

Love this Podcast! Wonderful Hosts!
Originally tuned-in to learn more about Nozbe, but have learned so much more. Michael and Radek are so enthusiastic about learning and sharing what they have learned. I need people like them in my life. For example, they led me to Duolingo to learn Spanish because they were doing the same. I hear their weekly achievements, tips, and struggles. Love that Michael was willing to share his daughter telling him, "You're doing it wrong!"; accepting the critique, relating why she was right, and improving.
I really enjoy their episodes about deep work. Really interesting.
I love hearing productivity/ux fanatics talking about life. It's my tribe. Good stuff. Keep up the good work!
