Treat Yourself as Your Best Customer

Treat yourself as a game designer does her favorite player. Or as an anthropologist does the people, in whom she is immensely interested.

If you would think of anthropologists, you might think of them having the following qualities. They are:

  • Non-judgmental
  • Utterly curious in what’s in front of them
  • Often dive into and actively engages with the culture they are studying
  • Immensely interested in understanding the culture they are studying, as well as its motivations

Now imagine being like that towards yourself!

So, when you observe yourself struggling with or procrastinating on a task, ask yourself the following:

How can I design or adjust this task in such a way that I, as a player, enjoy doing it or can’t wait to start playing it?
