Gamification to improve myself

I had Gamified my life about 4 months ago. Here is what I do:

Whenever I sit down to study or some other productive/good activity (ex. making this post), I start a stopwatch in my mobile. I get 10 points for each hour of productive work i.e., 0.5 for each 3 minutes. Prior to Gamification of my life I was lazy to the extent that I didn't use to brush my teeth for days and took bath fourth nightly. So, Brushing-5, Bathing-10 Each short activity that I do (ex., sending an email to an instructor) gives me 2 points. Bonus for brushing teeth, bathing everyday in the week - 20 How do I spend it? 1. Watching a Movie - 50 2. Watching an Episode from a series - 20 3. Spending Money - 1 point per unit of money spent (Rupee in my Counrty).

If you gamify your life, how would it be?

Sounds like it would be unproductive and tiring just to keep track of all that. If you want to enjoy tracking how much productive behavior you put in a day, try the Pomodoro technique? –  Muz Sep 20 '12 at 8:16
This really a good fit question - very subjective, but have closed as it is a near duplicate of a more suitable gamification question. –  Rory Alsop Sep 20 '12 at 22:29

I have been using https://chains.cc/ on desktop and Mychains on Andriod, what I love about Mychains is that I can set rewards for myself for small completions.

As I'm obsessed with achievements / trophies...

I like to set achievements, I wrote a little web page just for myself where I can set bronze, silver and gold achievements / trophies that I can unlock when a certain task is completed.

This is more of a discussion question really.
