I got a dose of conscience the other day form a friend of mine.
I mentioned how I was incentivising my goals for the previous month with a videogame reward. *If I got all these goals done by the end of the month, I would buy this particular game.
I was in a car talking with a few people, and said something to the effect of.
“I was going to play the game when I finished my goals, but now it’s a new month…but whatever”
I was grilled over, and made aware of, just how crummy that statement sounds. I basically threw my sense of accountability under the bus for some instant gratification.
The irony of ironies is that the game doesn’t work on my PC…
