Here is the sixth blog post in a series featuring videos on YouTube, where I read a paragraph from one of my motivational books and use it as a prompt to speak freely.
This idea was inspired by the free-writing exercise well-known among writers. I used dice and timer to turn this free-speaking exercise into fun games. I hope you enjoy watching them and maybe trying out this gameful approach for yourself and tasks you want or need to tackle today.
In this video, I read from Gameful Isolation: Making the Best of a Crisis, the Self-Gamification Way (Book 3 in the “Gameful Life” series).
I am reading a paragraph from chapter “11. Appreciate It.”
Here it is if you want to read along, prior, or afterward.
The prompting paragraph from Gameful Isolation
In Self-Gamification, there is all that, of course, but there is also something else, which is much more important than accountability, assessment of your progress, or rewards.
The next step
If you want to find out how you can support yourself during these times of crisis with considerably less effort than you might expect, then I invite you to read Gameful Isolation. It can support you on your journey in these insecure and unpredictable times. To look at the book and buy it on Amazon, click on its title above or this image below:
If you want to see where else you can buy it, then go to the book’s page on this website here.
Alternatively, you can subscribe to my page, Optimist Writer, on ko-fi for $5 a month, and besides supporting what I do, you will also get access to all my motivational books, which I share there once a month or each time a book is out. Right now, you can get access to six (soon more) of my books there — one upon subscription or one-time support and five in the posts solely for subscribers. Gameful Isolation will appear later this year or sooner upon explicit request from the subscribers.
I wish you a beautiful, resourceful, and gameful day!
