Thanks for your advice, and thanks too for org-element!

I can't believe that no one else needs a function to goto a heading, and
I am sure to need it again myself so did this:

(require 'org-element)
(defun my-goto-heading(file heading-text)
  "Visit file `file' and goto headline `heading-text'"
  (find-file file)
  (org-element-map (org-element-parse-buffer 'headline) 'headline
                   (lambda (x)
                     (if (string= (org-element-property :raw-value x) 
                         (goto-char (org-element-property :begin x))
                   nil t)) ;; stop at first find

and use it like this, so that whenever I need to remind myself of what
to do and how to do it I press (M-x gtd) :

(defun gtd()
  (my-goto-heading "~/org/org/gtd.org" "My workflow")
