Calling all writers: We’re looking for a writer for the blog

The world of productivity, time management, problem solving techniques, and general organization is vast and dotted with many rabbit holes. It seems that every couple of months there’s a shiny new technique or framework with its respective acronym promising to help us get organized once and for all. The thing is we’re all different and so are our needs. Where one system or technique works wonders for one person, it might frustrate and annoy another.

Most people find or develop one system and stick with it for long stretches of time – ‘it’s not perfect but it’s good enough for me’ they might think.

Others however seem to have a natural inclination to constantly explore and sample from this vast world. Trying out all the systems and techniques, and incorporating bits and pieces into an ever-changing ultimate system. A splash of pomodoro technique, a dash of time blocking, and a side of GTD for good measure. These folks are never content with ‘good enough’ and are constantly on the hunt for perfection. When you ask them what they’ve tried – they can confidently rattle off a handful of the things they’ve experimented with and probably incorporated some aspects of into their daily lives.

These folks are productivity enthusiasts, brainstorm technique gurus, and metacognition explorers. They’re interested in how processes and frameworks can help individuals achieve their highest goals and reflect on their deepest thoughts.

  1. I am a writer but I am not the writer for you right now, But I am thrilled buy everything workflowy recently and even more thrilled to have consistent High quality blog riding for users and new users. Bon Courage!

  2. I’m a long time Workflowy user. I love it! However I’m constantly baffled by the complete lack of any MFA. I would be laughed at if I recommended this product solely based on that one missing feature. I want to evangelize Workflowy but my hands are tied by a lack of priorities in your boardroom. Kind regards. KJ
