MMM #1: How Batching Might Save Your Personal Finances
When I tell people that I only spend about 1-2 hours per year on my personal finances tasks, people look at me like I’m crazy. How can someone who reads, writes, and podcasts about money every day… spend only 1-2 hours on their own personal finances? It’s called batching your personal finances.
No, I’m not talking about “Batching It” where you act like a Bachelor for a weekend when your partner leaves. What I am talking about is being able to accomplish twice as much in half the time. If you batch your personal finance tasks together, you can produce the biggest bang for your buck – while also spending the least amount of time taking care of these tasks.
What You’ll Learn – Do You Even Batch?
- How to separate deep from superficial work – and how this can benefit your financial life.
- The difference between Time-Batching and Time-Blocking.
- Why it is important to create an automatic financial plan.
- The difference between a Maker’s Day and a Manager’s Day.
- Listeners will find out that I have superpowers, too.
