Welcome to Optimist Writer!
My name is Victoria Ichizli-Bartels. I am an author of 23 books, writer of over 300 articles on Medium.com, instructor of two online courses, and expert in the areas of Self-Gamification (= “life-gaming” = turning work and personal life into fun games) and S1000D (especially business rules).
I am also a life gamer, turning any challenge, project, task, or activity
into fun games for myself.
Here is my invitation and challenge to you:
Invest in becoming your life’s best designer and player.
Save yourself the costs of seriousness and drama.
Gain resourcefulness, mastery, and fun.
I can help you learn to do this effortlessly and with fun by applying Self-Gamification, the gameful self-help approach that brings together anthropology (awareness), kaizen (philosophy of small steps), and gamification (gamefulness and playfulness) into a powerful synergy and toolset.
