Preparing for New Beginnings

March 2022 Newsletter by Gameful Life

March was, for me so far, a month of many preparations.

Preparing slides for the business course, I teach at a local school for writers. Preparing material for the customers, I consult and the meetings with them. Preparing drafts of articles for publishing here on Medium. Preparing to speak at an international conference. Preparing dinner. Preparing my home for a family visit. Preparing to pick up my children from school. Preparing to stop work for the day and spend time with my family or read a book by a favorite author.

I could probably go on and on.

I feel like we can find parallels to what happens in our lives and any moment in any month. In many places in the Northern hemisphere, March is a month of nature awakening after three winter months. Spring is a time of nature preparing for summer.

I can share two types of my preparations this month with you. The articles on gameful life and an invitation to join me at an international conference, which will take place online next week.

But one thing at a time.

An invitation

And here is an invitation to meet me at Gamification Europe 2022, one of the biggest and best conferences on gamification, the technique and art of learning from games and bringing the gamefulness and playfulness, as well as motivation and success so characteristic to gameplay, into real-life projects, activities, and environments.

I will be speaking about turning habits and life into fun games on coming Tuesday, March 22, 2022, dedicated to the topic of Health and Wellbeing. You can still get your ticket to the conference, or just this day if you wish, by using the code in this poster to get a discount:

I hope to see you there or on any other conference days. I plan to be there at all of the sessions.

Living a gameful life means approaching anything we are up to or what comes our way as if it was a fantastic collection of games, of which we are both designers and players. This publication is by Victoria Ichizli-Bartels. For more see and subscribe to
