Games are created to have fun while pursuing a goal. Video games have set pathways to accomplish the game’s mission. There are rewards built in to keep us engaged. We can let go and play and apply these same tactics by turning tasks into quests, setting up rewards and creating stimulating experiences that keep us motivated and committed to achieving our desired goals. When we gamify our lives even the mundane can be a fun adventure.
Play of the Week: When you find yourself lacking motivation to take on a chore or task or follow a routine try gamifying it and turn it into a quest. Set up a system of accountability like a checklist or chart or you can keep track on an ap to record your progress. Identify a reward and have fun with it! Piggy back a dull task with something you enjoy like upbeat music or listening to a podcast.
