Calendar Mindset: Scheduling Takes the Fun Out and Puts the Work In

Consumers often schedule leisure activities to more efficiently use their time. We demonstrate that concretely (but not roughly) scheduling leisure activities on one's calendar makes such activities feel more like work, which leads to lower excitement and greater desire to cancel. This effect is unique to leisure (vs. work) activities.
