Many have referred to the times that we live in as the “age of distraction”. We’re inundated by media, communications and notifications. In any given moment, we may find ourselves faced with a dizzying array of projects and tasks to focus on. Without a strategy to deal with the deluge, our default tendency is to procrastinate and to venture off on unproductive paths.

Overview of Webinar

Practical Focus with OmniFocus

This webinar emphasizes the value of developing skills around focused work and provides practical guidance for using OmniFocus to identify a specific project or action to focus on. We’ll look at how to stay on task during focused sessions with some help from OmniFocus and complementary apps and services for Mac, iOS and Apple Watch.

Attend the webinar and learn:

  • About the importance of clarifying areas of life and work that are worthy of your time and attention.
  • Strategies for scheduling time for focused work.
  • How to effectively use OmniFocus for Mac’s built-in Focus feature (Pro Edition) during focused work sessions.
  • How OmniFocus can help you systematically make progress on larger goals.
  • How to use contexts to quickly distinguish between actions that require focused attention, and those that can be accomplished in a less focused environment.
  • How to use perspectives on Mac and iOS (Pro Edition) to take full advantage of focused time.
