Level 2: How to Accomplish Your Main Quest
Without missing out on fun side quests
Welcome new and legacy heroes alike! Last week we wrote about how to find goals important to us, this week we'll talk about the best way to define goals for achievement! Join 26,857 gamers on their journey to self-improvement.
The Slippery Slope of Side Quests
We've all been lost in side quests in games like collecting Gwent cards in the Witcher 3.
This happens to us every day in our lives. Our goal will be to clean our room, but a few moments later we find ourselves shopping online for a new screwdriver. How do we avoid this?
Mario Only Had One Quest
Most games on Super Nintendo only had enough space to fit the main quest. If it didn't fit on the cartridge, it was abandoned.
This is the same mentality we should take with our own lives. One goal that is prioritized above all. If it doesn't help our main quest, abandon it. If it blocks our main quest, complete it.
The Cake Isn't A Lie
Side quests exist to keep things exciting. We can still do them by breaking our main quest into small pieces.
For example, if I wanted to lose 24 lbs this year, I will need to lose 2 lbs a month, or 0.5 lbs a week.
If I'm ahead of schedule, I can enjoy other activities today or this week. If I'm behind, I have to deny side quests. If I'm behind even after denying all side quests, I will need to adjust the timeline for the goal.
By planning ahead, you will be able to enjoy side quests!
Come back next week!
