William is an avid user of OmniFocus, OmniOutliner, and OmniPlan. He’ll be taking us on a tour of his OmniFocus setup and workflows and giving us a taste of how OmniOutliner and OmniPlan fit into the mix.

The nature of William’s work has him playing the role of a firefighter. He’ll share how he uses OmniFocus to handle the unpredictable elements of his work, such as writing news for AppleInsider, while also ensuring that he’s making progress on long-term projects. One of his strategies is to use his “First Ten” perspective, which surfaces the ten actions that need attention on even the busiest and most unpredictable of days.

William is a called-upon speaker and has spoken at about 900 events over the past ten years. Most of these were organized and planned in OmniFocus and OmniOutliner.

To keep up with all of the demands on his time, William makes extensive use of automation. He’ll showcase a Shortcut that he uses to create template-based projects to prepare for the many workshops that he leads.

While this session will focus on the Mac, William is also an avid iPhone and iPad user and is currently running the OmniFocus 4 TestFlight on his mobile devices.
