Kourosh Dini joined us from Chicago to share the basics of his Waves of Focus approach and how it can be applied using OmniFocus 4.

Waves of Focus with OmniFocus, Featuring Kourosh Dini

Kourosh Dini literally wrote the book on OmniFocus. His critically acclaimed book, Creating Flow with OmniFocus, was originally published in 2009 and offers a wealth of practical advice to support people in using OmniFocus effectively.

He also created the Waves of Focus approach for people who struggle with focus. In Kourosh’s own words:

“Waves of Focus: Guiding the Wandering Mind is an online course and community that helps those who struggle with their focus regardless of system. Sometimes, it’s just not about a system. It’s about how to manage the natural rhythms within. Some engage deeply and lose sight of the world around them. Some fall into scatter. Others struggle with lists, overflowing inboxes, and a cascade of unfinished projects falling off of every horizontal surface nearby.”

During this session, Kourosh shared the fundamentals of Waves of Focus and demonstrated how to put one of its principles – the Anchor Technique – into practice using OmniFocus.
