#038: Should You Budget Time (or Money)? [Podcast]

My goal this week is to challenge you to reassess how you budget your time. Most people think constantly about their money. How much is in the checking account? How do I get a raise? How to make this money go further? How can I keep a better budget?

I applaud that and I think the Bible has very sound advice about being a good steward about money.

But the worldview of the Bible holds that time, not money, is your most valuable currency. Today I’m going to show why you should budget your time and give you 3 practical tips on how to do it more efficiently.

    Great podcast, but just letting you know the sound quality wasn’t as good on this one as in previous weeks. It was kind of muffled/echoey/I’m not sure how to describe it. Content = 5/5. Sound quality = 3/5 (normally 5/5). I am subscribed on iTunes.

    Hi Dr. I am two weeks behind so I had to choose between this podcast about time and the previous one about recreation. (I will catch up). Love this. Curve ball scheduling is a great idea. I have set in my schedule “slow days” and they are really catch up days for time consuming paper work when I don’t have interruptions. I realize now, a catch up day is not the best way to approach this. The yes/no idea works well. I use a plate analogy. When you add too much to your plate, some important things like your spouse or child slide off the plate.
