My latest self-motivational game design I call “The Balance Game” got an adjustment. I now allow myself to have an ambition 😊👍, which is to finish writing my book on self-gamification as soon as possible (this spring). I record the points (1 point per 10 min spent on writing the book) in the little field marked with “SG” in the picture. So this project got a priority and also an exception for weekends. I allow myself to be creative in this project in my free time too. Mobile, scraps of paper, and the computer are all used as soon as creative thoughts appear.
I discovered that ambition and drive could add to the balance in my life and don’t have to contradict it. 🛣️🚘😎😊
P.S. If you would like to learn more about self-gamification and how you can turn your life into fun games, then check out the online video course Motivate Yourself by Turning Your Life into Fun Games.
