OmniFocus 3 Workflows with Michael Kirkham-Jones
May 27, 2020 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
Michael (Mike) Kirkham-Jones will be joining us to share details of his OmniFocus setup and workflows, that have been thoughtfully refined over the past nine years.
Extensive Corporate Experience
Mike is a seasoned portfolio and project manager. He also has over twenty years of experience as a programmer, working for both large and small organizations spanning a variety of sectors. His extensive work history includes being one of the first Java developers at IBM and working as an Oracle DBA (Database Administrator).
A Passion for Technology and Productivity
He has learned a lot over the years and is motivated to share his productivity and technology journey so that others can benefit from his experiences. He’s also very much a student of life and is always eager and willing to learn from others.
Mike’s OmniFocus journey began in 2011. He has continued to evolve his setup and workflow over the years, with some help from Tim Stringer’s four-month Holistic Productivity for Mac and iOS course and Learn OmniFocus.
Part of Mike’s OmniFocus journey was realizing the importance of having OmniFocus and complementary apps become a truly trusted part of his system. He makes extensive use of OmniFocus’ duration feature, to help ensure that actions are well defined. And he emphasizes the importance of building a system that is both stable and organic.
Mike’s Shortcut library currently contains about 200 Shortcuts that collectively improve his day-to-day activities. The investment that he made in his system has led to spending relatively little time in OmniFocus, freeing up more time to actually work on the projects and actions he defines.
His setup cleverly borrows aviation terms such as “ramp” and “in-flight”. He’ll be walking us through the specifics during the session. Be sure to fasten your seatbelts!
Other Productivity Apps
During the session, he’ll share his criteria for choosing apps and emphasizing the distinct role that OmniFocus plays in his overall system.
Close-Knit Family in Wales
Mike lives in Wales and values his close-knit family. He’s married and has three daughters and two grandsons.
An Interactive Experience
During the live session, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and share insights using the chatbox and audio/video conferencing. You’re welcome to join the live session 15 minutes before the start time to familiarize yourself with the online meeting technology we’re using and for an informal chat with other participants. The live session will remain active for 15 minutes after the completion time for additional questions and sharing.
