Dr. Tamar Avnet, associate professor of marketing and department chair of marketing and management at Yeshiva University’s Sy Syms School of Business, has a new article that is forthcoming in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. The article will highlight her recent research on the effectiveness and emotional well-being of people who complete tasks in clock-time, where scheduled tasks are dictated by an external cue, the clock, versus event-time, where the beginning  of a task is dictated by an internal cue, the completion of the previous task. Avnet’s work demonstrates that those who adopt clock-time scheduling style may be more efficient in completing their tasks, but feel they have less control over their lives and actions, while those who adopted event-time scheduling style experience a greater sense of personal control and are more able to savor positive emotions, which leads to an increased sense of overall well-being.
