There is a trend among us MMO bloggers that started a few years back in which we outline our gaming goals for each month as well as report on what we accomplished the month previous. I’ve actually found it to be both motivational and useful in tracking my gaming habits over a longer period of time. It’s always interesting to me to see what goals I set going into a month — and how the month shapes up after that point.
I never feel like setting these goals are constraining or invite pressure onto myself, to be honest. Instead, they can be a source of encouragement and a way to get pumped up for things I want to do instead of merely exist day-to-day online.
Do you set monthly goals in your gaming? Do you pick new games to play, or milestones to accomplish, or different things to try?
