What’s the point of making this blog? Well, probably so that I can update my progress on the games that I’m making, or someplace to jot down my thoughts on recent developments in the vidya industry.
But it’s also to make sure I get things done.
You see, sometimes (just like everyone else), I lack the self-motivation to do things. I’ve tried to make promises to myself, but I always get stuck in my head, get frustrated (see picture above), and then want to play games more than I want to make them.
However, if I post on the great interwebs that I want to do the thing and WILL do the thing, I know that there’s a possibility that someone, somewhere will see it, and maybe perhaps look forward to me doing the thing. Then I feel more motivated to do the thing, because now I’m not just doing it for me, I’m doing it for me and the one other person who wants me to. I also know that if I don’t do the thing, that one person may call me out on it, and I definitely don’t want that.
I may lack self-motivation, but I certainly don’t want anyone to know.
So here I am.
