I've been playing with budgeting time, and failing miserably so far. If it can get myself to stick to it a bit better, I could see it working quite well for me though. I tend to get stuck into a big project and let other priorities sit on hold for a while, which isn't really my ideal case scenario.
My theory is that 3.5 hours a day will be spent on emails, customer support, social media, and forums (with splits within that). 4 hours a day, 4 days a week on project, and 4 hours on the 5th day doing all the 'odd' jobs. Maybe one day it'll happen.....

Thanks Barb! Hopefully one day I can suggest you a very interesting job
I really hate the usual 8 hours schedule but we can't do nothing about it. Somewhat I have adapted to the situation. What I hate now is the sudden overtime that takes away my personal time.
I don't do a time budget, but I do track how my time is spent on Projects, GTD Workflow and Calendar activities (usually meetings). Roughly seems to be about a third each, but I would prefer if projects were 50% of my time. Project time is for big tasks, that I track on a Gantt chart, but projects also get moved along during the GTD workflow time.
I only have to meet with my boss once a fortnight usually, only weekly if we are really busy and he's trying to push me harder.
