Which means you have a finite budget of hours -- just like you have a finite budget of dollars. After reading this article, my hope is that you give your time budget the same discipline and respect (or more) that you give (or should give) to your financial budget. Staying Within Your Time Budget As an example, let's say you and your spouse have a personal budget of $400 per month for groceries.

Your tasks will never all be done, just like you will never not need to buy groceries anymore. My Favorite Solution
