On Creating Flow

… What Kourosh has been able to do with this publication, is nothing short of stunning. …

… you really can be at ANY skill level to read through this book. …

… From contexts to projects, perspectives to meta-tasks, I would challenge anyone not to be able to pick up any new tips and tricks from this book …

… I always refer to Getting Things Done as my productivity bible and I go back to it regularly to ensure that I still follow the sage advice given within. Well, I’ve now got a second book that deserves to sit alongside GTD and I really cannot give it any higher praise than that. Lee Garrett, Productivityist

Highly recommended, even for advanced users.

Cesare Tagliaferri, Osomac

I wish to express my sincerest appreciation for your body of work into helping others maximize productivity. Truly, sir, you have written two books that I would sincerely encourage anyone I know, particularly our fellow mac users, to buy and utilize to their fullest.

Burke, reader

Seriously, go buy that book.  It is unbelievably great.  If you’re an OmniFocus person, … if you’re someone who’s sitting there going, “why did I spend $80 bucks on this?” Well believe me, you will get way more than $80 worth of value out of this book.

… He really basically shows you how to turn this into a lightweight CRM for your life.  It’s really well done. Merlin Mann, Mac Power Users Podcast

A fantastic e-book about OmniFocus that I really can recommend.

It’s the best explanation/exegesis/how-to book on OmniFocus I’ve ever seen. Like, it really covers why OmniFocus is made the way it is, but it’s also like so good at incorporating it with best practices of productivity and getting things done in particular. It really is about setting up a trusted system and then getting to work.

If you’re one of those folks who’ve dropped the dough on OmniFocus and now you’re confused about to do with it, please check this book out. It’s really, really good. Merlin Mann, 5by5

I was a little reluctant to buy it at first; with so much information and advice about using OF on the web I wasn’t sure that the book would add value. I am not an OF newbie and have been practicing GTD for several years, so I was unsure whether this would be more of the same information.

I was wrong, I’m only 75% through and already the book has taken my Omnifocus use and GTD practice to a new level. I would recommend it as essential reading for any OF user. Steve, reader

Having a solid framework has really made a difference. It’s now become second nature to my work/play.

Hi,

I just want to say thank you for the effort on creating this publication about Omnifocus. I do a creative job, but with going freelance I met the struggle of running a business and all duties and responsibilities that come with it. I was totaly overwhelmed by all these things I needed to do to keep the business running. I had this moment, when my workflow stopped, I felt frustrated and depressed. I thought about closing my company. I was using Things app at the time and all the tasks were in one big bag, without contexts, groups, anything. I knew there was this Omnifocus system, but the app seemed too complicated and not legible at first sight. I watched some tutorials – still not excited about Omni. Few days ago I decided that I cant go like this and I have to switch to Omni and decided to give it one more try. I found your book. Read it in 2 days.

Now I feel like I been blind and I can see. All these things, personal, business, family, everything is organized, I dont need to think about million things to remember. I can focus on designing. I feel really free.

If not your book, I would never encourage myself to learn Omni, it just feels not intuitive at first contact. You made a huge effort to create this great book. I really feel you saved my company. And because my life is my job, you propably saved my life. From all my heart – thank you. Im sure I will buy your another book about workflow soon. Anonymous Reader

I have incorporated your Core system and it truly is amazing how much more tasks I get done, due to not having to hunt and peck for tasks I have to do.

Patrick, reader

… hands down one of the most exhaustive and detailed resources for OmniFocus that I have seen. If you are at all intimidated by OmniFocus, or even if you are already using it daily and want to learn more about it, I highly recommend Kourosh’s ebook.

… the book [Creating Flow with OmniFocus: Mastering Productivity] helped to significantly improve the usage and hence the value of OmniFocus.

On Workflow

this book is the real deal

David Sparks, Mac Power Users

as outstanding as your first work was your second is even better. I am spellbound.

Greg, Reader

… the Neil Stephenson of non-fiction

… he hits you with an idea so clear and so relevant that it blows you out of the water and leaves you on the shore, wondering how it is possible that something so clear and obvious never occurred to you. That, my friends, is genius.

… If you are even slightly interested in the dynamics of process and workflow, this is a great place to start… Ben Broeckx, Exploring the Black Box

… very deep insights into what is behind personal productivity. It goes beyond that. When I read an advanced draft version of the book, I was struck by how deeply the content resonated with me and felt true at an almost intuitive level. It makes sense, in that it comes very close to making clear why we function how we do when we aim to achieve a higher personal productivity. And that approach, more than many approaches I’ve read and studied before, actually allows you to enhance your current workflow.

Ben Broeckx, Exploring the Black Box

… renders visible those logically flawed but long invisible assumptions that lead us to create more work or stress for ourselves than is really necessary.

Christopher Robert, Curvewriting

… the Euclid of workflow and doing things. While other people are vaguely talking about soccer fields as plains, you are strictly defining them as infinitely thin things that expand in 2 directions. The intentionality and rigor of the first edition of this book gave such great structure to talking about productivity, doing things, loving things and making space for things.

Sean & Josh, readers

I have purchased Kourosh’s books on productivity and Omni Focus, “Creating Flow With Omni Focus” and “Workflow: Beyond Productivity.

These works helped me tremendously to move forward much faster in my productivity.

Kourosh has a wonderful writing style, his meanings always bringing even deeper thoughts than what they first seem to want to say to the reader. Dragan Ruzic, LinkedIn
