Budgeting Time First Increases Multiple Goal Achievement

How can consumers effectively marshal their time to achieve multiple goals? Four experiments demonstrate that allocating time before setting goals (vs. not allocating time or allocating time after goal-setting) increases multiple goal achievement. This occurs because a time-first approach encourages consumers to better calibrate multiple goals to the available time.
