105: Twitter detox

Listen on YouTube

Discussion on distractions and addiction, and how that relates to software we use. We forgot how to be bored for even 30 seconds, and we fill even the smallest slices of our time by responding to notifications and with social media. Just so we can have our hit of dopamine.

100: Two years

Listen on YouTube

This week, we're celebrating our one hundredth episode of The Podcast. Sharing the story of how this show came to be, how it evolved with us over time, and where its future lies.

98: Stop Stealing Dreams

Listen on YouTube

Continuing from last week, this is part two of our rant on the education system. We argue that it was fundamentally designed for a different era, designed to produce obedient workers, efficient at performing arbitrary tasks. Not necessarily to teach you the most about the world. And certainly not to teach people curiosity, independence, entrepreneurship — traits that are becoming increasingly more crucial in the new era.

97: Schooling

Listen on YouTube

Part one of our rant on the education system. Our experiences are quite different: Michael had a great time in his 5 years of university; Radek never went to college at all. We both agree, though, that the way schooling is done is deeply flawed, outdated, and ineffective at teaching.

96: Working while traveling

Listen on YouTube

At Nozbe, everyone works remotely. Usually that means, from home. But sometimes, we work even more remotely — while traveling.

We share tips on how we pull this off, how to be productive while in such an imperfect work environment.

93: Dare to try

Listen on YouTube

Why is studying productivity a worthwhile pursuit? Many people assume it's all useless — and much of it is! Like with dieting, it's a field filled with charlatans promising amazing results with barely any effort at all. Yet, underneath all the nonsense is wisdom to be discovered.

Michael and Radek share their journey with productivity and explain why they got interested in it in the first place.

89: Shutdown ritual

Idleness is good for the brain. After a day of hard, deep work, you ought to disconnect from work completely, shut it down, and recharge for the next day. Commit to this, work can wait.

Radek shares a little habit he's developed to help maintain this work/life balance.

87: Sleep Smarter

Everyone knows that sleep is important (or so we hope), but it isn't just the quantity of sleep that matters, it's the quality of sleep as well.

There's a ton of little factors that influence both how long and how well you sleep. On this episode, we'll be unpacking the most important ones we've learned from the book Sleep Smarter.
