orkflow Mastery: Building from the Basics is an advanced textbook ready to reward the diligent reader interested in productivity, creativity, and mastery.

The text dives deep into the individual components of the workflow. While each individual has his or her own unique systems, the basics of the workflow remain. Intention, organization, sessions, practice, mastery, motivation, and more are explored at both a practical and psychological depth. Terminology and definitions work in concert with each other and are presented individually so that you can decide where and how to improve your individual workflow to whatever degree you may wish.

What you will not find is a series of quick fixes or how-to lists. However, you will find an in-depth examination, from basic concepts to an advanced understanding so you can build the secure foundations needed to truly develop meaningful work.

Workflow Mastery is application independent. Though the text is also a companion to Creating Flow with OmniFocus, it is fundamentally a standalone work, ready to help you develop creatively and towards mastery regardless of the tools you may wish to use.

Michael Schechter

It’s rare that logic and beauty can occupy the same space…

Michael Schechter & Vardy Workflowing

… dives deep into the realm of workflow and indeed goes well beyond productivity, compelling the reader to really spend some time thinking, fostering, and mastering their own workflow.

… a master class in workflow …

… one of those rare works that will truly help you in the quest to stop doing things and start doing the right things.

Ben Broeckx
Ben Broeckx Exploring the Black Box

“… the Neil Stephenson of non-fiction”

… he hits you with an idea so clear and so relevant that it blows you out of the water and leaves you on the shore, wondering how it is possible that something so clear and obvious never occurred to you. That, my friends, is genius.

If you are even slightly interested in the dynamics of process and workflow, this is a great place to start.
