Just Start! A look back at 30 straight days on Twitch

When I originally began the Minimalist Gamer idea in February, one of the criteria I set was Be Streamable. Until recently, this was the only item I was not living up to with the project. Adjusting to life with an infant did change my gaming habits. Spending most of my day carrying Devlin meant certain games (Overwatch) were not able to be played. This should not have stopped me from fulfilling the streaming portion, but, for some reason it did.

In September, I decided to commit to Twitch.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol. 12

Welcome to another installment of Sunday Morning Links!

It is great to be back on the site and updating again. If you haven’t already, please check out Monday’s post. Of course, on my first full week back I lose two days due to a technical issue, but SSL is now working. Hopefully, Google is much friendlier to the site.

Presentation: The Four – What To DoA brilliant presentation from Scott Galloway, Professor of Marketing at the NYU Stern School of Business and Founder of L2, that shares how the traditional rules of business don’t apply to the Big Four (Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google) and identify ways that brands and companies can fight back.

And then there was one: A new direction for Warcraft Minimalism

I have hit a roadblock with the Warcraft Minimalism project. The plan I laid out for this patch is not working. Flying has made everything easier and, in turn, feels as if I should be doing it all. I know this is not the case, but I am struggling. I called Patch 7.2 the first true test and I even though I praised flying last week, something’s not quite right. A new direction is needed.

Something drastic must take place.

What are you willing to say “No” to?

There is a stigma around no. No is not a bad word. It is not a selfish word. It is a word that helps us create our ideal life. Without it, we are miserable.

Arrows Black Shoes No

Every Sunday, I sit down to look at my week ahead with one question in mind. “What can I remove?” The idea behind this is to stop doing things that are not essential. If the plans for a day are not necessary, they need to go.

We have limited hours in each day, so we need to make the best of it. Continue reading “What are you willing to say “No” to?”

The first true test for minimalism in Azeroth

It’s patch day for Azeroth. Later today, when servers come back online, patch 7.2 – The Tomb of Sargeras –  will be live in North America. In the past, this day meant a mad rush to get going on all the latest things. Log in to all of my characters. Start working on every new bit of content. But, not this time.  This time I have to be intentional. Today is also a patch day of sorts for Warcraft minimalism.

Playing with Purpose | An update on Warcraft Minimalism

It has been almost a month since I began the minimalist gamer project. The decision to attempt Warcraft minimalism has reinvigorated my interest in the game reaching a level is hasn’t been at since Burning Crusade. While I did log in every day during Warlords of Garrisons, I did not necessarily find it fun. It was more of a requirement because of all the gold to be made. But now, having a renewed purpose, a goal and a project to work on every time I enter the game, it makes for an incredible playing experience. The fun has returned to Azeroth, and it was all because of the following three steps.
