5 Reasons Everyone Should Practice GTD

I am a firm believer that GTD has the power to change your life.

I have been practicing GTD for 14 years, and since that time I have:

  1. a greater control over commitments with myself and others.

  2. a clearer and more peaceful mind.

  3. a higher focus when engaging with the actions that will help me achieve the expected results.

Practicing GTD has also helped me to carry out projects I would not have thought I was capable of, to meet interesting people and to improve my life and the lives of those around me in ways that I would not have thought possible before. I recommend everyone start practicing GTD.

And I have 5 specific reasons why:

  • 1️⃣ It will help you unclog your mind and free it from the task of having to remember everything.

  • 2️⃣ It will help you think about what's the meaning of your stuff for you and decide when it shows the best way to move forward on it, instead of letting it blow up in your face.

  • 3️⃣ It will help you set up the appropriate placeholders to organize the reminders resulting from your decisions, so that you only see them when it makes sense.

  • 4️⃣ It will help you reflect regularly on your commitments and priorities, so that you can adjust and update them on a consistent basis.

  • 5️⃣ It will help you choose the best action among your available options at any given time.

You may have heard GTD is complex, but what is complex is your life. GTD will only unfold that reality for you.

So if you consider or start practicing X, let me know—I'd love to connect with you (and answer any questions you have getting started!).

There is usually an inverse relationship between how much something is on your mind and how much it’s getting done. David Allen
