Time Buckets

alt text alt text dates/2021/12/07 projects


Using existing approaches to budgeting and using money as a time management approach.
After using YNAB for over two years, I really think their bucket based approach is the best for budgeting, I also thing that budgeting could be applied to time in much the same way.

We split our budget between buckets, from the obvious ones like sleep, eat, work to more abstract things like alone time, social etc..
Then when we expand time we note down which bucket was used and we subtract, then it's much easier to let ourselves enjoy some good Netflix time without feeling guilty, and also gives us a solid point to stop at when we consume too much time on it.
