Today I’m joined by Michael Hyatt, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World and co-author of Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want. Michael blogs, podcasts and develops online courses on leadership, productivity and getting your product offerings heard above all the noise. He and his team, Michael Hyatt & Company, serve a readership of nearly a million every month. We’re going to take an inside look at how he uses WorkFlowy in the behind-the-scenes ideation, organization and collaboration of his hugely successful products.
You might be collaborating quite satisfactorily with one tool or another – but until you start collaborating directly in WorkFlowy, you’ll never know how miserably one dimensional everything else is.
The uniqueness and power of collaborating in WorkFlowy – as opposed to tools like Email, Google Docs, Slack, Trello and Evernote – is this: Not only do we (1) get to organize our collaborative efforts any which way we choose in one infinitely nest-able outline – but we also have the ability to (2) comment and input information concurrently into any part of our outline and (3) filter for any “updates” anywhere in a snap. These are just the broad strokes.

I’ve dedicated my WorkFlowy book to my daughter:
For Emma-Pearl: Each Pomodoro spent on this book meant less beach time for you. Though you don’t yet know all about lists and productivity, you’re on almost all of my lists… and hands down, the #1 beneficiary of my @Future-me tag.
I’m going to need to change this up a tad, because my daughter has caught on to list making in a big way since my book came out. I’m kicking myself for not having taught her about making lists much sooner. You know… little human beings are much more capable than we give them credit for. If you’re not making lists with your kids yet, you’re seriously missing out – it’s so much freaking fun!
