The points I am most proud of

Thursday, February 04, 2010

As I have confessed, I am an obsessed point collector. I start my day six a clock by logging in to spark people and collect whatever points I can, then I sum up the day at night and add the rest than is possible.

But after five months with Spark People I am not that excited about the amounts of points anymore. When I have lots to do I go for the actions that I think are most important. So today I am going by train to Stockholm and I really have no time for this - but still I have collected the points I am most proud of - and thats the points that stems from communication. To write on message board, to huddle in teams and to comment other members blogs - these have become the points are most important to me. Nowadays I even comment on blogs that I don´t have to because I´ve already gotten my points for it, and I write more than five messages on message boards (well, I do get points for that in the long run as I get for every 100 message I have written.

If you have read my blog for a while you have probably noticed that I come back to this point thing over and over. It´s just that I am so impressed and delighted that an action that is part egoistic - to get points (useless, but who cares?) - helps to build habits that are contributuional to the good powers...
Thanks for reading.

    I love the points too. And getting points started me reading the blogs. I love reading other Sparker's stories. It makes me feel part of a community. Alone I haven't succeeded at changing my life, but with others I have, in so many ways.

    Meddy - You are so right! THe points are like a mini reward every day to help you keep going, checking and becoming an energizer bunny (it is a bunny used to advertise Energizer batteries)

    I am most proud of my fitness and nutrition points right now. I love my posts and blog points but I KNOW I get those every time I am here without even trying.

    As always, your blog makes me think and have woo hoo and aha moments!

    Hope your trip on the train is good. Can you travel through most of your country via train?
