Conquering To-Do Lists with Amir Salihefendić

Conquering To-Do Lists with Amir Salihefendić

This week, Nick sits down with Amir Salihefendić of Doist to discuss his companies, Todoist and Twist. Todoist is one of the most popular digital to-do list apps on the market today, and Twist is an internal communication tool similar to Slack and Microsoft Teams. After building one of the most successful to-do list tools in history, it's no surprise that Amir has a lot of thoughts around productivity. 

Nick and Amir discuss the role of tools in business and life, how to create a system for productivity that works for you, and why asynchronous communication is so crucial for modern companies. And even though Todoist is seen by many as the ultimate to-do list app, Amir still doesn't view it as a "perfect" solution. In the episode, you'll hear him explain what he thinks is missing and why he's committed to improving Todoist for years to come.
