That is an excellent essay, with some very insightful comments. I
especially appreciated the part about avoiding the build up of overdue
scheduled tasks. In my case, this sometimes leads to "agenda anxiety",
which causes me to invent all sorts of displacement activities rather
than review my daily tasks.

Now that is a big name to defect to the org camp. The fact that
planner's original developer has jumped ship certainly makes me feel
vindicated in switching from planner to org. All kudos to Carsten for
an excellent package that keeps getting better and better.
