Life as an Adventure Game

Today, I was working on my day job as a project manager, and as I often do, I played some background music to finish my tasks. I like to play Zelda, Nintendo music, or Lord of the Rings.

I was thinking about the gamification of stuff. I began to apply it to my tasks. I tried to finish fast and imagined that finishing the tasks I had at hand would unluck the “get to write” level, which I am doing right now.
