Getting Things Done® with OmniFocus Training

The Getting Things Done® with OmniFocus course has been replaced with Learn OmniFocus, a website dedicated to supporting people in using OmniFocus effectively. OmniFocus is also prominently featured in the Holistic Productivity Online Course.

OmniFocus Mac IconThe Getting Things Done® approach to productivity, commonly abbreviated as GTD® is practiced all over the world by everyone from artists to engineers (and no doubt at least a few artistic engineers). GTD is well suited to our fast-paced modern lifestyle and provides structure without constraint, supporting you in operating in a creative, relaxed and productive way in all areas of your life.

GTD® in a Nutshell

In a nutshell, the GTD approach promotes capturing everything that has your attention into a trusted system. Once captured, projects are defined, where necessary, desired outcomes are clarified and discrete actions are articulated. For maximum effectiveness, tasks and information are stored in a streamlined way and frequent reviews ensure that nothing slips through the cracks. The ultimate goal is to produce what David Allen calls a “mind like water” state, where there’s literally nothing on your mind – a powerful space that fosters creativity and aliveness.

OmniFocus | Your Trusted System
