Uhm, what is the purpose of that Elisp?

You want to set the keys for org-mode? Or globally,
using the org functions? (actually, I don't have
them, even in org-mode)

If you want to set it for org-mode, why set them
locally? Anyway, assuming you have `required'
someplace where they are defined, or otherwise made
access to them possible:

  (require 'org)
  (defun set-org-keys ()
    (define-key org-mode-map "\C-tlf" #'org-drag-line-forwarrd)
    (define-key org-mode-map "\C-tlb" #'org-drag-line-backward) )
  (add-hook 'org-mode-hook #'set-org-keys)

(also note differences in style ...)

If you want it globally, why the org-mode hook?

I agree with the people who say shortcuts should
be... short. But something just as important are that
they are _close_. Put your fingers at asdf (left
hand) and jkl; (right). Look down, and, hit the
shortcut. See, and feel, how far did your fingers
have to go? So short, close -> comfortable and fast!
