Angry BirdsAs a rule, I have zero interest in playing video games as they are a huge waste of time and mind. HOWEVER...I have actually found a productive use for a video game in my work. My computers are notorious for locking up while I multitask on them. They routinely and randomly will decide to freeze while processing something I have requested - especially as I always have many programs open and 15 open tabs in the internet browser is extremely common. wait...wait...wait...wait...wait...wait...
For me this was becoming a significant source of exasperation and frustration. I found myself getting pushed to the edge of my restraint waiting for the computer to decide when it was going to give me back the keyboard. Often I would thrash around the keyboard trying to get control back... lockups and reboots were a daily event.
Enter the Angry Birds game on my phone. Now whenever the computer does it's thing, I immediately pick up the phone and play the game. It gives me something immediate to focus on other than wait and stew and get frustrated. Every couple of seconds I will glance up at the computer- if it is still processing I return to the game. As soon as it releases the computer back to me, I resume work. This gives the computer necessary time to process whatever commands I already gave it and it gives me something to do while I wait. The time flies by and computer reboots have dropped to almost zero. I never would have thought that a video game would help me to be a more patient person and actually assist in getting more work done!
