I'm currently working out a way to gamify my daily work / life. I want to reward myself via a points system, assigning points to tasks I should do but tend to neglect.
These are things like paying invoice in a timely manner and answering important emails but also things I want to do, but never get around to, like working out from time to time.
As I'm the only "judge" I also work on way to prevent that I game the system, but this isn't a real problem for me because I tend to be objective and don't think I'll cheat myself.
Also, I don't want to tie the system to any specific task-management application (like EpicWin for iPhone)
Have you tried something like this?
Did it work out?
Thanks everyone for their answers! I hadn't time to really work out a good system for me so far. So far I use a software (producteev) to manage tasks from everywhere and decide on point value on task creation. I also have daily tasks of calculating daily score and all. Points add to a score value that actually results in a budget for stuff I can buy for myself. per 100 points I can spend 1€. This way t improves my motivation while also limiting my spend-all-my-money-instead-of-saving-it personality.
