Continuing the theme from last time, I’d like to share a cool little app called HabitRPG. It turns your life into an RPG, leveling you up and giving you gold for accomplishments, taking hp when you fail to get stuff done on time, and allowing you to buy rewards for yourself. Its strength and weakness is that it is completely dependent on the user to set up the tasks and rewards which means that it’s wonderfully customizable but there’s nothing to prevent you from setting it up to be really easy and therefore not that helpful.
I’ve found it surprisingly helpful. Apparently keeping that 20 pixel high character alive is more important to me than prioritizing my life. Confounding, but it’s made this probably the most useful tool I’ve found so far.
