For nearly the last year, I’ve been hard at work updating Workflow: Beyond Productivity. I thought there were some small adjustments to make, but each change had a rippling effect. More things became apparent and the text needed greater changes that I originally thought. In any case, it is now a whole new text:
I’m really excited about it and am happy to finally be releasing it. If ever there were a project into which I invested everything I learned, this is it. I’ve written about productivity, building systems, concepts that stem from psychoanalytic thinking and therapy, and creativity.
Grab a preview by signing up to the mailing list. If you’re already on the list, you should be getting an email with a link. If you already own Workflow: Beyond Productivity, you’re getting Workflow Mastery: Building from the Basics free of charge.
If you find yourself:
- Constantly fiddling with your systems,
- Not getting the right things done, or
- On edge throughout your work, whether you have a system or not,
Workflow Mastery is designed to address it.
OmniFocus 2 is aimed for release this June. Over the last several weeks, I’ve been happy to be a part of testing OmniFocus 2, pushing its capabilities. It’s an attractive upgrade with interesting possibilities for workflows.

Or finding our way towards the end,
When unclear or confused,
When distracted by the inside or out,
Or when it would simply be nice to pause.
