Thanks, but no thanks

I don't need motivation from challenges like these. If you do, reconsider what you are doing. I walk exactly as much as I enjoy walking.


Thumbs up!

Hingegen wäre es noch witzig den Thomas mehrmals um genau einen Schritt zu schlagen. Der braucht die Bestätigung ja.

I've never understood what's so cool about gamification.

When I use a tool at work I want to be productive and feel rather annoyed if that thingy starts telling me "hey, you can do better, you're only 50 points away from the next level" - WTF???

When I choose use a tool for organising stuff in my private life, I want it to do exactly that - and to do it well. Again I don't give a toss on childish stuff like that.

So I'm not alone. Good to know.

Gamification works for me. But I don't need to compete with others.

Friends of mine engage on dietbet. I don't know, but every way I think about it, I get the feeling that system is totally wrong.
