Gamify Your Life
EveryThing gamifies everything! Did you just wake up? +5 points! Did you shower? +10 points! Did you take care of your duties using a Kohler® bathroom fixture? +20 points and a valuable coupon! As you always suspected, the value of your life is quantifiable, and for your every action there is an equal and apposite reaction: POINTS! (From Gamify Your Life, by Lucas Klauss.)

  • I actually did gamify my life for a little while and it worked quite well! Habit Judo [http://projects.metafilter.com/3055/Habit-Judo]. You get a random number of 1–10 points for every one of your habits you do each day, and lose a random number for every one you don’t. I was flossing, reading an article and writing something or other all the time in no time! There’s even an Android app [https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.habitjudo.v1].

    Unfortunately I somehow lost the Habit Judo habit and my dentist just called to remind me it’s time for a follow-up appointment…
