Gamification Creates Process
In order to work efficiently and stay motivated, human mind needs a few things:
- It needs to know the goal: what needs to be done, how it can be done, and why it should be done.
- It needs to know that the task is not infinite. Ideally, the time of completion should be known and not too far in the future. Tangible representations of progress are the second best thing.
- It needs to know, rather than expect or guess, what the outcome will be. The results should be predictable and beneficial.
