Things like an unexpected death in the family, major financial issues (good or bad, winning the lottery is just as difficult to handle as being flat broke), marriage or divorce, fire, flood or other natural disaster, major health issues. Inevitably something will happen that causes you to have to completely change your life in some way. Having a system to handle the process of exploring that change and getting to the root of what makes sense to do in that environment is key to using those things as opportunities for growth and not just a trigger for a slide into a black hole.
GTD, practiced over your entire life provides a framework to explore what is really important, to align your doing with long term goals and to free up your incredible mental energy to go, think and do things you never would have had time or energy to do before. GTD practices also provide a comfortable backdrop so you are prepared to handle whatever challenges life deals out to you.
