10 Signs or Measurements You Are Having an Easter Egg-Over

Assessing and Measuring Progress

If you want to grow, reach goals and make dreams come true, assessing and measuring progress is mandatory. Likewise, if you want the same for your children and students.

We assess and measure things to know where we stand, how we are doing and to achieve desired results. We do it grow continuously and more efficiently. Measuring our progress has lots of benefits. Here are 5 payoffs. It:

  • Enables to track our performance and make necessary adjustments to achieve the desired results.

  • Allows us identify areas of improvement, and take corrective actions if needed.

  • To make informed choices. It permits us to gather objective data that guides us in making more effective decisions based on evidence rather than assumptions or guesswork. (Parent Teaching Tip 1. Read the lyrics and listen to the Sammy Rabbit song Make Your Choices Count as a beginning or reminder step to help kids be more think and be more thoughtful about their choices).

  • To promote and improve accountability by creating a framework for tracking and reporting progress.

  • To enhance performance and advance more rapidly toward accomplishing goals and dreams by providing feedback on our actions and results. By measuring and analyzing data, we can identify strengths and weaknesses, implement changes, and optimize our efforts to enhance performance and achieve better outcomes.

When to Measure Performance

The choice of when to measure performance of an experience depends on the specific context, goals, and nature of the experience

A combination of immediate and delayed measurements can often provide a more comprehensive and accurate assessment of the experience's success.

  • Measuring performance right after the experience can provide real-time feedback and capture immediate reactions and impressions. This can be useful for evaluating the initial impact and satisfaction of the experience.

  • Waiting and reflecting on the experience before measuring performance can provide a more comprehensive assessment. This allows time to process the experience, gain perspective, and evaluate the long-term impact.

Combining both immediate and delayed measurements can provide a holistic and balanced evaluation of the experience. Immediate feedback captures initial reactions and impressions, while delayed measurements allow for deeper reflection and consideration of the experience's lasting effects.

What To Measure - 10 Signs or Measurements You Are Having an Easter Egg-Over

Clearly defining what one is trying to achieve, what success looks like, and what specific outcomes or results they aim to achieve will help one determine what to measure.

You can apply this process to any experience, including Easter. Here are 10 signs or measurements you are having an Easter Egg-Over. Team Sammy came up with its lists of measurements by researching what people commonly regret post Easter.

  1. Missing out on attending Easter church services or spiritual observances.

  2. Not investing or spending enough time with family and loved ones during Easter celebrations. (Parent Teaching Tip and Money Script 2. As a fun experiment and test, make an effort to substitute the word "invest" for "spend" as it related to the use of time. Do this as often as able, and after a month or two, assess whether it makes a positive difference to you, your family and friends).

  3. Not participating in Easter traditions and activities that hold personal or cultural significance.

  4. Overindulging in Easter treats and regretting the effects on their health or fitness goals.

  5. Not planning ahead and feeling stressed or overwhelmed with last-minute Easter preparations.

  6. Not being able to travel or be with distant family and friends during Easter due to various reasons.

  7. Failing to keep within a budget and overspending on Easter decorations, gifts, or events.

  8. Regretting not being able to find or purchase desired Easter items, such as specific gifts or Easter egg hunt supplies.

  9. Not taking the opportunity to volunteer or give back during Easter and regretting a missed chance to help others.

  10. Feeling guilty for not being able to meet expectations or fulfill traditions associated with Easter due to personal limitations, such as health issues or other circumstances beyond their control.

Parting Thoughts

Pausing to periodically reflect, assess and measure progress is a Sammyriffic step to incorporate into our daily journey to grow, get better and get more of what we want and need. It is a Sammyriffic step to teach kids as well. (Parent Tip and Money Script 3. Try out or modify the following short sentences with you kids (and students). Assess if any resonate and motivate them to make better choices with money or in other areas of their lives.

  • Measure and map your money. Make your money do what you want it to.

  • If you want more money: Map it. Map it. Measure it.

  • Budget your money. A budget is a money plan. Get your money to grow and go where you want it to go. That way, you will have money to get the things you want and need, when you want and need them. (Listen to the Sammy songs Budget and Plan with your kids and students)
