理财中有个概念叫做 Pay Yourself First,即每次获得收入之后,我们通过一个自动系统把收入中的一部分用于投资,然后才把剩下的钱用于消费。在时间管理中,我们也可以借鉴这一概念,先规划用于自己身上的时间,再规划用于工作或者他人的时间:

It’s only natural to focus on our external obligations first. After all, there are real and immediate consequences for not paying your rent. You won’t feel the consequences of not saving until years, or even decades, later.

He recommends setting up an automated system to set money aside for your investments or other savings goals first — then come back to pay everyone else.

It’s only natural to focus on work first. After all, there are real and immediate consequences to missing a project deadline. You won’t feel the immediate effects of not exercising, reading, journaling, eating a home cooked breakfast, working on a side project, but the consequences compound over time.

You need to set up your own systems to make sure you pay yourself. No one else is going to do it for you.

Paying yourself first is more about a shift in mindset than anything else.
