3 life games and work

If you don’t want to do some work, it may be because you haven’t convinced yourself that it will help you in one of these life games:

  • Survival Food, minimal amount of money,…

  • Status More money, more connections, more possesions, more recognition

  • Self-actualization A sense of mission and meaning, connection to the transcendent

To do the uncomfortable task, to put yourself out there or restart an old task half-finished, connect work in a clear way to one of these games.

I will do this, which will make it more likely to get that, which will help me make more money, which will help me pay the rent and continue working in a sustainable way.

This also applies as a check against doing meaningless work.

Can you clearly articulate how what you need to do connects to one of these games?
