I'm thinking of moving my organizational system needs over into org
mode, but I have a question first.

Let say I have a recurring to-do, such as 'daily exercise'

In org mode right now it would look like this:

* TODO daily exercise  :offline:
   DEADLINE: <2009-12-03 Thu .+1d>

Try treating `daily exercise' as a recurring event (as opposed to a
recurring TODO with a deadline).  Like this:

* daily exercise  :offline:
  <2009-12-03 Thu 07:00 +1d>

org-mode has different semantics for SCHEDULED, DEADLINE, and plain
active timestamps.  For a recurring event, you'll generally want to
use plain timestamps [1].  (Also, as a TODO, when would you mark it
`DONE'? :)
