How to Save Yourself Costs of Drama and Gain Resourcefulness Instead

(Image by the author)

Our days are full of ups and downs. And those downs are often dramatic. Some a little more, others less.

Can we bypass those dramas?

Yes, there are possibilities. My favorite is turning life into fun games.

You don’t have only resourcefulness and fun in the process, but mastery in designing your life as if you were the best game designer for your most important player, yourself.

How can you do it?

With a gameplay loop of just three steps:

  1. Become aware of where and how you are, where you want to head, which would be the smallest, most effortless, most affordable, and the most fun step to take in that direction.
  2. Take that step.
  3. Celebrate it and record your score.


It is that simple.

The same process applies to designing your self-motivational games because turning your life into games is a game in itself.

You can start this practice right now, right this moment, where you are. You don’t need to be different than you are right now. And you don’t need much time to do that.

So, what is your next project, activity, task “game” you want to play? Don’t forget to identify the mini- or micro-game in it.



The next step

If you would like to take this a step further, then here’s is what I can offer you:

  • Eight books of various lengths and on various aspects of turning life into fun games
  • An online video course
  • One to one or a small team coaching
