There’s an easy explanation to why so many people enjoy playing video games: they love leveling up.
Think about how satisfying it is to unlock a new perk or achieve a new title. Even though the incentives are completely virtual and have no real tangible benefits, we feel compelled to keep playing so we can hit that next level.
Real life works in exactly the same way — we just need to embrace the right mindset to achieve what we want in life.
I like to think of myself as a relatively well-rounded conversationalist. I can talk to you about a little bit of everything; history, science, philosophy, business. I even know a wee bit about sports. (Ugh, sports).
But there’s one thing I almost certainly know nothing about: TV shows. Ask me about the latest episode of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, or whatever else half the world is raving about on social media, and I’ll be absolutely clueless.
