So I got my first real job this week. Just about to hit up my first shift, get some monriz.

Anyway. I've been thinking about how adding games to things I want to get better at will help me get better at that thing, just because of the game presenting a challenge to be overcome.

To test my theory I've decided to try it out. I've decided to break down the games into categories and then apply them to things I want to get better at. These are:

Poker. (gaming): Survival, (lv 1) four games, playing for 30 minutes.


Writing. : Score Attack, (lv 1) How many words in 30 minutes. (reduce minutes per level, scoring based on words/minute)


Reading. : Race, (n of words) in pre-set time.


Memory. : Write recall essay (part of writing game), chop up and put face down. Put back together.


Filming. : Put together a Hollywood conventional film, sticking to as many of the rules as possible, or at best, achieve the rules of the Hollywood convention, without actually sticking to those rules.


Looking at it, there's not much to go on, and I'm not entierly sure how I'm going to score all of these games. However, I aim to use every possible means in order to get better at these games. Obsession will be my friend.

Got to go to work. Not much to say this week. Time to experiment.

"Very interesting discussion. Something I think about a lot.  I can definitely identify with Fionn's fear of failure. I experience this in lots of things I do, from procratinating to do a fleeting sketch because of fear it might turn out…"

What's your character flaw? What do you intend to do about it?

Everybody has one, or sometimes more than one. Mine is a fear of failure. Atychiphobia. This leads into playing it safe, not taking huge risks, with work, education, friends,…See More
