Does Better Time Management Have a Positive Effect on Money Management?
My time has been at a major premium lately (as in, it seems like I just never have enough of it to get everything done that I want and need to do). So I’ve been forced to get a little better at time management.
I started using Google calendar a while back, and that helped immensely, but it still seems as though I could be better organized and more efficient.
I’ve noticed that when things seem to be going smoothly time-wise, my finances seem to be in a little better shape. When things are hectic and I keep putting stuff off to the next day, my finances kind of fall by the wayside. The papers pile up, and I start missing self-imposed deadlines such as making monthly contributions to various accounts.
So what do you think? Does better time management have a positive effect on money management? I’m not suggesting there’s a 100% causal relationship, exactly, but maybe being better organized in that one area helps in the other. Have you had a similar experience?
