Self-Gamification simply means what it says, one turns aspects of one's life into a game, rewarding oneself for doing things, and shifting the perspective on the mundane, the usual, and the challenges in one's life. The author provides a tremendous amount of her own personal insight and anecdotes to help illustrate the use of gamification, and she encourages the reader, by small steps, to try it out and see how it works. It's a reward-based system that empowers the individual. A win-win scenario and definitely worth the read if you're looking for self-improvement, greater happiness and success in your life.
