Subject title: A to-do list which is also a game.

One friend offered me to try this one thing called Habitica. I never expected a game that is basically a to do list to make me more responsible and disciplined than I was. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post a link to this browser game here, you can just google it by the name, maybe it will help some of you too. Maybe we could gather a team in there and defeat our bad habits together or I something. And yes it can't keep track if you really do complete your tasks or just checking them as complete for exp and money so that's on your conscience.

Pretty cool. :)

I've actually been using stickie notes with 3 goals for each day and it's been pretty productive for me. :P

But I'll def check it out. : D

I tend to forget or ignore them most of the time, this game basically tamagochi but instead of feeding a pet you need to do your chores or your character will die a horrible death. Now that's motivation.

This is just great, Thank you so much BulletHell, this is like a gift from gods. No seriously, I had so many problems with structure that are all just solved with this thing.

I cheated on this game and myself because of curiosity and greediness. I clicked on the productive work button more often than I should have... When I did have to choose a class I did chose rouge. Maybe I can get ahold of myself better in a group of forum members. Anyone up for a group? It's a fun thing to do task in a role play like this. It's speaking to my nerdy side. Thanks for sharing.

Oh I used to play this. I am terrible... Like.... So, so, sooo shamefully bad. I just straight out lie when I don't want to do something. God damn.

...I'm still going to use it because I believe I've learnt enough discipline by now to be able to get disciplined, though. Does that make any sense? Anyway, it may help me keep up better with the practice, right now it might be too chaotic and random. Thanks for reminding me this exists ^^!

I don't get why you would want to cheat, what's the point?

I'm glad people actually like this app, I find it almost a life-saver in some situations.

I am a honest player, and that's why I have only 15 hp left out of 50, it's a good thing I will get a level up soon though.

I am not actually a team player even though this is pretty contradictory to what I wrote in the first post, if I will figure out how the group part of the game works then I guess I could join in some group of ours if we have one already.

Joined yesterday, seems to be kinda working so far, there was one thing I didn't do but it did get me to do other things I was putting off. I don't get why you would be dishonest, what's the point of even using it then?

Yep. That's the point that there is no point for dishonesty.

is there any way to check what to-dos and dailies I´ve done (checked off) in the chronological order? Sometimes I forget whether I checked off my daily or not and it costs me my precious hps =(

yes check it the bars between "new task" and "the task you type in" i have a german version so... i dunno what´s in english called but there should be a "done" category or similar
Spoiler: show

other tips:
things you put on "to do" aren´t going to reduce your hp only the undone dailies or bossfight can. You are even able to set a date for a deadline in your tasks. The more red the task becomes in the "to do"-list the more it will damage a random boss if you join a group slaying bosses for quests.
