About Mike Vardy

Do you wish you were a little more productive?  Are there things you're not getting accomplished right now because you've got way too much on your plate?

Well, Mike Vardy is a thought leader in productivity.  He’s an author, speaker, and founder and President of Productivityist.com, a company that helps people stop “doing productivity” and start “being productive” through online and offline channels.  Before founding Productivityist, he was the managing editor of Lifehack's productivity blog.



Time is the only resource you don't get back.


Mike started honing his productivity skills when he was a manager of TWO departments at Costco.  He needed to create a system to help him run both departments efficiently, and so what has since become Mike's signature productivity system was actually born on the job at Costco!

He walks us through several of his own productivity tips in the interview.  You'll definitely want to take notes!
