Org-mode is a mode for keeping notes, maintaining TODO lists, and doing project planning with a fast and effective plain-text system. Org-mode develops organizational tasks around NOTES files that contain lists or information about projects as plain text. Org-mode is implemented on top of outline-mode, which makes it possible to keep the content of large files well structured. It can even publish reports charting your work for your personal web page, your conscience, or your soon-to-be-impressed boss.

Note, if you are interested in my schedule then please follow the
link. The schedule is made with planner-mode and org-mode since those
two are my PIM system which runs atop of GNU Emacs.
I even know people who don't use organizers. And people who
don't use Emacs. I swear I've seen some!

I also use planner-mode. I already used it for several years before I
also started to use org-mode next to planner-mode.
UPDATE: I am now back to planner-mode (exclusively) after heavily
evaluating org-mode for ~4 months. Planner with its underlying Muse
layer is simply superior and it does planning more the way I fell
comfortable doing it. However, Org is fine as well.
