Productivity expert and OmniFocus aficionado, Justin DiRose will share how he uses OmniFocus alongside Notion, Drafts, MindNode, and pen and paper to manage both short-term tasks and the bigger picture of life.

OmniFocus Setup & Workflows

Justin will take us on a tour of his OmniFocus setup and workflows, sharing details on the specific roles that OmniFocus plays in his overall productivity system. For a taste of his approach, check out his post entitled An OmniFocus Workflow for 2020.

He’ll talk about how he uses the popular Drafts app alongside OmniFocus for short-term storage. Justin also continues to make good use of pen and paper. He’ll share his motivations for going analog in some instances and how he’s made productive use of Bullet Journalling over the years.

Managing the BIG Picture

Justin puts a lot of emphasis on the big picture. He makes extensive use of Notion as he incubates ideas and plans and tracks longer-term projects. He also makes good use of MindNode when working on larger projects.

Reviews: The Glue That Keeps Everything Together

Justin emphasizes the importance of reviews, talking about them as the “glue that keeps everything together”.

He’ll be talking about the variety of reviews he performs (e.g. daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal), emphasizing how these reviews positively impact both his day-to-day life and work and the bigger picture.
