A commentary on Asana's new unicorn.
You wake up, check email and start your day
You prioritize your day - from most important thing... to least important thing.
You check things off as you do them
Either in your mind, or in an organizational tool, like Asana.
Doesn't it feel good to check things off?
Sometimes I just write a little box that says "write to do list" just so I have something to check off.
Enter in: the unicorn.
Asana - the organizational tool I mentioned earlier - has a unicorn that races across the screen after every couple of completed tasks.
It's the next level of that feel-good feeling.
Not only do you get the satisfaction of checking a box off - but a mystical unicorn prances across your screen to let you know how amazing you are!
Enter in: the gamification of the everyday.
When I see a unicorn cantor across the screen every couple of tasks - I naturally want to complete more tasks so I can keep seeing it.
It's a competition against yourself.
I start asking myself: How efficient can I be? How many times can I see the unicorn today?
Turning the mundane into the magical.
Asana is brilliant - they took a task that I would have to do anyway, and made me want to complete it faster - they gave me something to aim for.
What's your favorite gamification tool?
