How Successful People See the World with Emily Balcetis 

-----------------

I ran out of laundry detergent last week and couldn’t motivate myself to walk 20 steps to the store to buy more. Why? I can lecture for hours, interview an author for the podcast, answer 70+ emails, and spend time with all three of my kids in one day, but the laundry detergent errand felt impossible. 

I have periods of manic productivity with breakthroughs at every turn, but other times when the most mundane chores of life are overwhelming. Why? Where does motivation come from? Why does it waver? On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a psychologist who can help you find your fuel for life.  Listen & Learn: 

  • How the fantasy of a goal can sometimes create enough pleasure to reduce motivation to actually achieve it 
  • How to avoid under-stimulation without accidentally welcoming overwhelm
  • When it can be helpful to look back and anchor past successes
  • When it makes more sense to focus on the future, the next step 

Links & Resources:

CM 158: Emily Balcetis On How To Achieve Success

Curious Minds: Innovation in Life and Work
Episode artwork
Read more
What if knowing how successful people see the world could help us achieve our goals?

When we see people achieving their goals, we may be tempted to give up. We tell ourselves they have advantages we lack, like more time, and maybe even traits we lack, like a better work ethic. While both may be true, what if there's a different reason they succeed, one that has to do with how they see their goals?

That's what Emily Balcetis, Associate Professor of Psychology at New York University and author of the book, Clearer, Closer, Better: How Successful People See the World, set out to discover. For example, in an innovative study of visualizing goals in order to choose which ones to pursue, she asked women to shop in a different kind of store. She explains that, "On the shelves, they saw paper bags with labels...hours for a work week...[number of] kids...compensation packages...all different facets of life that they had thought about in that survey were now made concrete."

Emily learned that making deliberate and strategic choices about how we visualize our goals can dramatically improve our chance of achieving them. Her findings reveal four visual tactics we can use to do just that.

One of these, "narrow your focus," is something elite runners do. In a study on exercise, Emily taught participants this skill and the results were fascinating. Emily shares that, "People who were taught to narrow their focus of attention...took more steps when they went out for each...walk, they moved faster in the same of time, and they went out more often for walks or runs in the week that followed."

Emily's work has been featured in The Atlantic, Scientific American, NPR, and Forbes. She's received awards from organizations like, the International Society for Self and Identity and the Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology.
