SamTastic Weekly Tip: 8/24/20 - TimeTrack can unlock more gains than you might think.

This week’s tip: TimeTrack can unlock more gains than you might think.


Do you know why TimeTrack works? Could you use the reason TimeTrack works for you in other aspects of your work?


Emily Balcetis is a social psychologist and Associate Professor of Psychology at New York University. Her research focuses on people’s perception of world and how their motivations, goals, and emotions influence it, especially with regards to visual perception.


Her research demonstrates several reasons why TimeTrack works. Setting attainable goals, visual reinforcement each day demonstrating that you are in the GREEN, the dashboard showing gains and framing the work each day in a manageable format.


The work of a principal is complex but pyschologist Emily Balcetis says the solutions are often right in front of our eyes. Her new book, Clearer, Closer, Better: How Successful People See the World is an excellent guide for school leaders. Emily was featured on National Public Radio’s Hidden Brain last week: https://n.pr/3g460mg
