Creating Flow with OmniFocus was released a little over 2 years ago and has met with more success than I could have imagined. Frankly, I was stunned and am still a bit stunned. I am absolutely ecstatic that others in the community have found it helpful.
Though, I’ve written a bit on OmniFocus since, I’ve paused posts for the time being. That doesn’t mean I don’t have more to contribute. As always, most of any creative processes go on unseen.
In the meantime, …
Along with the very nice site design, the resources page has also been significantly updated to include more sites and focus on various themes and producers of content on the web. There is an absolutely vibrant community of productivity writers and enthusiasts on the web. I’m certain there are more names and articles to add so, as always, feel free to contact me with any suggestions.
Also included is a more accessible blog section. At some point, I would like to return to writing about workflow using the blog for updates and ideas as time and attention may allow.
New Book Announcement
Since releasing Creating Flow, I have still been writing. Tentatively titled, Workflow: Beyond Productivity, the book-in-progress should provide a nice companion to Creating Flow, though it definitely stands on its own as well.
The book begins with the theory:
Mastery and meaningful work are developed as a play guided into maturity.
Readers of Creating Flow will note that it begins essentially where things left off at the end of that text. From there, I examine the workflow in detail, not in the context of any particular program or system of work, though I do make mention of them, but in whatever distillations of the basics of workflow that I could manage.
Writing the text has taken my creative attention for these last 2 years. Similar to Creating Flow, I at first thought it would be a small project, but then it became a significantly larger work.
If you have enjoyed the prose aspects of Creating Flow with OmniFocus, I do believe that you would enjoy Workflow: Beyond Productivity, too. It should help the reader reflect upon, build, enhance, and refine an individual workflow, with an aim towards finding not only productivity and effiency, but a form of meaning and play within work.
There is no present release date set. Though I would like to see it completed, I am doing my best to allow the text the time it needs to develop.
Edit 2012-12-22: The previous title was Mastery in Workflow: Vision to Reality and has been updated to Workflow: Beyond Productivity.
