it was amazing

I've used all the digital tools for implmenting the "Getting Things Done (GTD)" methodology--Todoist, Nozbe, Evernote, etc.--and all can do the job. When I came upon Omnifocus, I found a tool that seemed to be closer to the core of GTD methodology than others. I downloaded the trial version and started to get to work. The problem I ran into is that it's a simple program that has an incredible level of complexity. That is, to truly implement *your* version of GTD you need to get very comfortable with all of the features of Omnifocus quickly, before you lose steam and abandon the whole lot.

That's where Kourosh Dini comes in. His book, "Creating Flow with Omnifocus," takes you through all of the nitty-gritty of setting up projects, contexts, and perspectives in Omnifocus in a way that works for you.

It's a long book ... that is, you get a lot for your money. It's not a set of Powerpoint(tm) slides, and it's not a feel-good book that gets you an inch deep into the program.

Instead, the author walks you through the program's features in a way that's technical and productive; as you follow his step-by-step instructions, you end up with a fully-configured version of Omnifocus that lets you use the program to start and end each day with a view towards the maximum amount of productivity you can accomplish.

This is not a 99-cent book; it's expensive. Whenever I come across a book like this, I have to wonder if it will truly save time and pay for itself.

Kourosh Dini has written a book that makes that argument: you will truly save time and money implementing his principles and practices, and you will end up with a personalized system that produces a calm. clear, state of mind.
