Chapter outline draft: Planning your day in Emacs

| emacs

The first chapter I’m working on is about planning your schedule in
Emacs. Here’s my draft outline. I’m targetting 20 pages. The chapter
before this is about managing tasks (35 pages). The Org and Planner
sections in this chapter will build on the previous chapter, which I
haven’t written yet.

  - do not keep track of schedule at all
  - track schedule using Outlook, Notes, or some other program
  - track schedule using PDA
  - track schedule using Filofax or other paper planner
  - already use Emacs and want to learn more tips
