The short answer to your question is that you can use either of the budget strategies (ROI or Daily) and not lose sight of your other objective. 

If you use the Daily budget, you can continue to monitor your ROI by running reports and/or looking at Simulations. The Simulations will recommend a budget based on your ROI.

If you use the ROI strategy, you can set up a min and max daily budget within which you want to hit your ROI target.  

If it helps, the most popular budget strategy is the Daily budget.

Daily Budgeting is appropriate from my guess for you. but it is true it differs from person to person & Strategy to strategy.

I personally like  automation strategy from Ramit Sethi. I had separate accounts for bills, savings, and spending, and my direct deposit got automatically split between those accounts. As soon as I went away from that method to trying to keep track of everything in a single account (when I moved to Simple bank), my finances tanked.
