Developing Your Own Life Game

Developing Your Own Life Game
  1. Live the game you dream.
  2. Make your own Playbook. Identify the “epic players”, the current “quests”, the “bosses” and the “countermoves” in beating them.
  3. Experiment a reward system. Give points to every milestone and collect “loots” in the form of predetermined rewards.
  4. Create your “dashboard” for detailed project planning. 
  5. Keep your game simple. Do not load it with too many and complicated rules and quests.
  6. Pause for a while to regain your energy. Sticking to the game is more valuable than heroic bursts followed by inaction.
  7. Design it beautifully to be inspired to play it.
  8. Revisit and refine your game, improve your Playbook.
  9. Define boundaries. Don’t be a game addict.

Discord has worked hard on ensuring the lowest latency possible during a voice call, and that hard work is now paying off when they realize that it’s not just gamers who want sub-millisecond latency.

With so many communication tools available in various online platforms, Discord offers nothing new on the surface and feels like a mashup of Slack, Reddit, Zoom and similar tools. However, the way the tools are offered feels like people are hanging around and enjoying being connected passively, and are not working. The USP of Discord is the sense of play.

On a daily basis, do something, no matter how small, which has you walking toward your vision of life. In other words, your goals.

"Embracing new things often requires us to embrace our fears, however trivial they may seem. You deal with fear not by pretending it doesn’t exist, but by refusing to give it decision-making authority."
