If you have been getting my weekly newsletter then you will already be privy to the fact that I have shifted away from GTD to my own personal productivity approach. If you haven't been getting my newsletter, then you can start to learn more about what I've been developing by clicking on the following link: http://productivityist.com/nyf

(I'm really excited about where this is headed and look forward to hearing feedback from all of you along the way. Thanks!)
 
I have been working on something for a while. Something big. Something important. Something awesome.

It's a productivity approach that I have not only used myself for the past year, but have been training coaching clients to use for the past year as well. It is simple, flexible, and durable. And it works.

It's called The NOW Year Formula - and I am slowly but surely bringing it out from behind the closed doors of my own life and the life of my one-on-one clients to the world.

If you want to learn more about The NOW Year Formula and get notified regarding updates on delivery and other related materials, check out the link below.

This is going to change the way you use Evernote, especially if you are a free user. Make sure you read all about the new tiers of Evernote so that you can make an informed choice about how you plan to use Evernote going forward and what tier is the best one for you.
Over the past several months we’ve taken everything we’ve learned over the years and applied rigorous research to get our paid offering right. The process was eye-opening. As it turns out, there were three things users want: a basic level, a lower-priced tier, and a tier with unlimited uploads. Today, you get it all. Say hello to the three new levels of Evernote.

I've been relatively quiet on G+ (and social media in general) since the start of my new year on February 2nd. This short video - less than three minutes long - gives some reasons why.

I'm not getting an Apple Watch. I'll let this article explain why that's the case.
With the launch of the Apple Watch, Mike Vardy explains why he is steering clear of the innovative new timepiece.

+John Marshall Valid point, but I think the iPhone can serve a large part of that for me for the time being.

If you HAD to pick one notebook brand to use, what would it be and why? I've got Baron Fig ones, Field Notes, Moleskines, the new Bullet Journal ones from Leuchtturm, the Week Dominator, and more. I can't choose! So maybe through this discussion I can whittle things down a bit.

If you've got a favourite writing utensil, I'd love to hear about it too.

+Mike Vardy  I love Moleskine. The paper is a great stock, the notebooks and journals come in all different sizes, colors, and paper types (graphed, lined, blank). I always feel like a kid in a candy store whenever I'm at the store!

Decided to put a little video together to address the new series I started for The +Productivityist Newsletter. I've been getting a lot of feedback about the first installment in the series and wanted to offer a bit of an explanation, a few answers, and what you can expect during the rest of the three-part series titled, "Why I Left GTD Behind."
 
After receiving a lot of email regarding the recent edition of The Productivityist Weekly Newsletter, Productivityist founder and author of the series "Why I'm Leaving GTD Behind" decided to share some of his thoughts on video regarding the series and to clarify a few things in the process.

Change is a good thing. If you've come up with a different way to do things that woks for you, then all power to you. David Allen is David Allen and you are you. Respect where it's due.

Writer - Talker - Productivityist
Introduction

I am a husband, father, writer, podcaster, speaker, and "productivityist".

In addition to writing for my personal weblog, Productivityist.com, I continue to contribute guest articles to several blogs on the topic of productivity, including The Huffington Post, GTD Times, and SUCCESS Magazine.

Prior to returning to full-time freelancing, I served as the Managing Editor at Lifehack, one of the top productivity blogs on the web. I've also been an editor at technology news site, The Next Web, and enjoyed a year-long stint as editor of the work-life balance blog, WorkAwesome.

I am also the author of "The Front Nine: How to Start the Year You Want Anytime You Want" from Diversion Books.

Along with my written work, I've given talks on productivity and technology, as well as several featured keynotes and workshops related to time, project and goal management. As a podcaster, I have created, produced and hosted several over the years. I currently co-host Mikes on Mics with Michael Schechter, a podcast that is part of the popular 5by5 network.

I live in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada with my amazing wife, daughter, and son.

Derek's work in local publications drew me to him, and I was exceedingly happy with the work he provided. He made me feel comfortable throughout the shoot, was open to my ideas and offered many killer ones of his own. If you're looking for a top-notch photographer, you can't go wrong with Derek Ford.
