There are many methodologies when it comes to personal organization, probably one for each person in this world. They all have advantages and disadvantages, but GTD (Getting Things Done) is the only system I know that defines a complete workflow and covers all aspects of life and work.

Perhaps because it’s the result of 20 years of David Allen’s experience as a consultant, helping managers of many companies face all their responsibilities, or perhaps because its principles are common sense and backed by science, the truth is that it has been an unbeatable system since it appeared in 2001.

But how can you benefit from learning GTD and using it in your life and work? In my opinion, these are the top 10 benefits of using GTD:

  1. Say goodbye to stress. “The art of stress-free productivity” is the slogan of the book. And this is undoubtedly the main benefit of GTD. In addition to a method that tells you how to organize and manage your tasks, its fundamental principles aim to help you face all your professional and personal challenges in a calm way. Capturing all things in a trusted system leaves your mind free for more creative tasks than trying to remember things all the time. Clarifying everything you capture shapes what you have to do and removes uncertainty. Reviewing your system regularly gives you the peace of mind of knowing that everything is under control.
