[emacs-humanities] Emacs "Projects" management?

I am using Emacs for almost everything, as I have done for decades.  I use
Org-Mode, though I do not take advantage of too many bells and whistles.
Various tools offer to help organize "Projects;" but here's the problem for
me: they seem to cater to the programmer, for programming projects.

The very word "Project" is fuzzy, imprecise in usage: I have seen it used
in the sense of a writing project, or without boundaries; yet in the
tutorials and guides for, for example, "projectile" project manager
package, it seems to focus on programming projects.

I would like to ask about how others, in the "emacs-humanities" community,
use such project managers for various kinds of projects (in the loose
sense), and whether such as "projectile" have been useful, and what
modifications were useful.

I am not a programmer, and my attention span is declining.  I do not wish
to embark on a large scale "project" of coding and configuring in elisp to
get somewhere with this.

Thank you for any thoughts about this,

Alan Davis
