Time Budget

I am in Niagara Falls at an HP convention. Big change from the weekend. I lead a surreal life. Moving from hiking and canoeing to 5 star hotels.

A friend of mine recently asked me about the concept of a time budget. This would be similar to a money budget where we decide how much time to spend on each task and function and figure out how we should be spending our time.

The more I have thought about this, the more I think that it is an awesome idea and is something that I am going to try.

One concern that I have with calling it a budget is that budgets tend to make people feel restricted and are often daunting for people so I guess as with any budget, it would require self-discipline and control as well as realism. One knock people have against time management is they say they will never be able to have fun or take time off. Totally wrong. Good time management allows one to do more of what they choose to do. (of course in my case that is building a great company)

Might be a good idea to add to my eBook.
