  2. 2. Without Giving Away My Secret Sauce [yet]…Txt2Calm Background<br />Expert Focus: Decrease Procrastination-Induced Stress in Non-Technical Stanford Undergrads by helping them start assignments the day that they are assigned—building initial momentum<br />Pilot Users are Non-Technical Undergrads<br />Users were asked to do “work” at a certain time<br />“Work” was defined by the users<br />Interesting responses when users checked in at certain time….<br />
  3. 3. Users were not explicitly asked what assignments they were doing…but<br />They still provide specifics of their assignments, such as...<br />Subject (i.e. English)<br />Topic/Goal of Assignments (i.e. Monkeys & Memory)<br />How much completed work (i.e. Halfway done)<br />What assignment they will work on next <br />
  4. 4. Insights<br />Natural tendency to share these categories of information—without being asked: <br />Assignment…Subject, Topic, Progress, Next-step<br />Deeper: These categories may be essential to completing their assignments, and to defeat procrastination-induced stress<br />Lesson Learned: Create these categories so that pilot users can store this information…then we’ll see what else they need<br />
