Zen and the Art Of Work

Towards the end of 2016, my friend Kourosh Dini published a video course entitled Zen and the Art Of Work. I'd been a big fan of his previous work, notably the books Creating Flow with OmniFocus and Workflow Mastery however I wasn't sure what to expect, given that this was the first time I was exposed to Kourosh's video work.

I wasn't disappointed at all. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that these videos are a triumph.

The course contains 16 modules with 14 exercises, as well as an introduction and conclusion video. Each video is narrated by Kourosh and the attention to details on the aesthetics is something to behold. Even the backgrounds for the slides that appear were specially designed - no Keynote templates on show here! The music that introduces the videos is calming, as you would expect from such an accomplished pianist and the content of each video has been carefully curated to offer the right amount of information. Not too much so as to overwhelm and not too little. Each video is between 10-15 minutes long, just the right amount of time to keep your focus.

Covering topics such as habit formation, building systems, working on large projects and creating sessions of work, there is enough in this course to satisfy experienced and amateurs alike.

So take a look at the course here and see if it's for you. You won't be disappointed.
