Balance OS | Integrated GTD, PARA & Goal Setting Notion Template

10 ratings

With interconnected GTD, PARA, and Goal Setting templates, this ALL-IN life Management SYSTEM is meant to help you organize and align all the different areas of your life.

Have you ever been so overwhelmed by all your tasks that you were unsure where to even start? What about your personal and professional goals? Your side hustles and all the ideas floating around in your head?

This template takes full advantage of the automatic and relating features Notion has to connect and organize everything—your tasks, projects, areas, goals, ideas, and notes—until all the questions and jumbled-up thoughts in your mind make perfect sense!

This pack is for:

  • Saying goodbye to procrastination!
  • Taking control of your life and unlocking your full potential by staying on track with all your life areas, projects, and goals!
  • Keeping a thorough database of everything useful you want to remember!
  • Finding balance, clarity, and peace of mind amongst the juggling act that is life. Don't feel overwhelmed by tasks!
  • Freelancers, students, or anyone who wants to manage personal or professional projects and goals!

Review and reflect with the following main pages:

1) Getting Things Done

A step-by-step breakdown of the GTD process by David Allen.


Based on the PARA method by Santiago Forte. A filing cabinet for your brain, with 20+ templates that automatically filter your tasks and resources/notes by project or area and automatic progress bars. Maintain different areas, juggle different projects, and file information with note-taking templates. (My personal favorite template is the Reading template)

3) Life-balance Journaling

A place to check in with yourself and align with your purpose and goals weekly, monthly, or whenever you need it with 5 templates. How do you know if you're still on the right path if you never stop to look at the road?

4) Goals Overview

A space to break down your goals quarterly, monthly, and weekly, and link them to projects, as well as to measure and track your progress on major goals through automatic progress bars.

Review your life day to day through the following views:

1) Dashboard

An overview of your current tasks, calendar, current projects, habits & goals.

2) Today / Current View

An overview of everything that's current—your tasks, your habits, your weekly objectives, and your intentions. Let this view guide you throughout your day. Switch between today, current, and other views within this page.

3) Eisenhower's Matrix

Review your priorities through the tried and true Eisenhower's Matrix, which is linked to your GTD.

4) Looking Back

Celebrate your wins and remember the good times, with a gallery view of each month.

5) Habit Tracker

Review your progress on all of your habits at a glance.

Bonus: Minimalistic and Aesthetic themes available. A phone view is available to address the limitations of using Notion on the phone. Integrated Deep Work Chamber.

If you're unfamiliar with the GTD, and PARA systems used here, no worries! I've got guides on how to use this pack, along with video tutorials embedded in the actual pack, and my line is always open for inquiries! Note that there may be a learning curve for those new to Notion, but some video tutorials are available.

Interested but want a preview first? Check out the template here. I spent months making sure this template reflected the system that optimizes workflow, prioritization, and helps keep momentum and motivation, and I hope you like it!

✨ NEW Aesthetic theme ✨

✨ NEW upgraded note-taking template for books with idea database and automatic filters ✨

✨ NEW Balance OS 2.0 that has Deep Work and 12 Week Year templates integrated into it, as well as savings goals trackers on the financials page. ✨

Just a sample of the savings tracker. It uses automatic rollups.

Note: The Balance OS is recommended for people who know their way around Notion or people who are willing to learn. It is a very comprehensive and complete OS system, where many pages are linked together. If you are willing to learn, some tutorials are available and you can always message me with questions, but know that there may be a learning curve! If you are looking for a simpler template that will take less time, you can check out the GTD only template instead.
