  1. Non-Medical Goals - data from the "Positive Psychology" folks?

    Love & respect that you're doing this with integrity and insistence that data/empiricism matters.

    Any chance that the positive psychology folks already have useful stuff for you to mine?

    I came here hoping for a feedback loop for professional projects that scare me and I avoid: hoping you'll have it going sooner rather than later. Or else I'll have another excuse for not living my life.

    :D

      You have no excuse!!! :p

      Everything that’s on the site currently is backed by positive psychology practices, and just because we ask you to choose injury/illness vs health goal at the beginning, doesn’t mean that project management can’t be your goal.

      We’ve had people use this for writing novels, learning a language, playing an instrument, finishing their PhD, getting through/over a divorce, planning a three month journey to Europe – the sky is the limit, and the power packs we have get their power from universal principles, so don’t be afraid to use them to tackle whatever your challenge happens to be!

    • Make it able to delete powerpacks fully!

      I just would like to delete powerpacks that don't fit to my situation fully!

      Thanx

      • Quest timing --an additional suggestion

        Similar to the person who wants the option for once a month quests, etc, I just want to say that I have some quests I need to do 2x a week, for example, or on alternate days.

        So some way to expand the possible time settings for quests would be extremely useful and appreciated.

          If you specify a quest as recurring, you should have the option to say you want to do it 2x a week :) Then, you can add reminders on the days you want it added to your to do list.

        • A graceful way to finish the game?

          SB is very new, so this probably hasn't come up yet, but do you have ideas for player exit strategies? If so, what are they?

          One of the things about setting this up as a game is that it makes self-improvement fun. This fun-ness is removed if a player is tied in, either by a feeling of responsibility to allies, or just by a design quirk that assumes that there will *always* be another hill to climb.

          That way lies problematic use because superbetter has become an obligation/job rather than fun. It becomes a demotivational spiral that the player is…

            Right now, when you accomplish an Epic Win, you have the option of choosing your next Epic Win, or declaring yourself “SuperBetter”. When you declare yourself SuperBetter, you’ve finished the game – and it encourages you to go out and live the life you’ve created for yourself. We’ll be here when you come back, whenever that is :)

            As far as being an ally, you can always be “just an ally” and we’re working on ways to remove yourself from being someone’s ally if you don’t want to (currently, only heroes can break the hero/ally link).

          • spelling edit

            It looks like "brain" is misspelled in this sentence...

            In mindfulness and brian expert Dr. Dan Siegels analogy, mindfulness is the lens that helps bring difficult experiences into focus.

            ...Thanks : )

            • Superbetter is like 43things but way more fun!

              I remember trying to compose my list of 43 things and being able to browse through other people's goals, feeling inspired by the community and giving voice to what I wanted to accomplish. Superbetter goes a step further and makes the process fun and engaging. I wish there were any easier way to see what other people's challenges are and see them in one big visualization. It would also be nice to tag challenges so that you could see similar challenges arrayed together.

              • I would like to be able to delete a quest but can't

                I opted to try one of the power packs, but would like to modify or delete one or two of the quest items, either because that quest doesn't apply to my situation, doesn't work for me, or would work better if I could modify the description.

                Thanks!

                • Learn Guitar "epic win"

                  I've done a few online courses for learning guitar. I know it's not a "physical" or "emotional" HEALING process, but is really is both physical and mental. I was wondering if anyone else has put this type of step by step, song by song, challenge by challenge epic win together, with quests, bad guys, power ups, etc into SuperBetter. I think it'd be a great idea.

                    since this doesn't seem to be possible, i presume that i need to abandon the current account, and create a new one?

                      Hi there!

                      You can change your challenge area at any time by clicking on the text below the banner saying “I’m getting SuperBetter at…” on your HQ (you must be logged in.) This will show your current challenge. Click the grey “edit” link on the right side, and you can select a new challenge area. :)

                    • "Complete Quests" To Do stuck at 6

                      No matter how many quests I perform it always says to complete 6 more in my To Do column. Is this because I added a bunch of Power Packs? Also, when I remove Power Packs the quests stay in the queue. I can't delete Quests, and I don't want to complete them falsely.

                        Hey there!

                        There was a bug with the to-do list, but it should be fixed now. Please let us know if your list isn’t updating when you complete quests now. Thank you! (You should also be able to remove entire Power Packs as well as delete individual quests from Power Packs now.)

                      • Editing the To Do list

                        I want to be able to edit my To Do list. Right now the list thinks I need to complete three quests that I can do "anytime", and there's no way to remove them and add other quests. This defeats the purpose of the list.

                          If you don’t have any quests scheduled for a particular day, the To Do list will recommend three quests from your list that aren’t scheduled. You can add quests to your To Do list simply by editing them and setting a reminder for the specific day you want them to appear :)

                        • Vanquishing Bad Guys

                          Hey, so when we're "battling" we have the option to "Vanquish" however, this doesn't seem to actually work. We get a lot of points for clicking vanquish, but then it still remains in our list of bad guys. If we no longer need to battle that one, and have therefore vanquished it, shouldn't it be removed from the list of bad guys?

                          Maybe you could create an achievement type wall. A place where all your vanquished bad guys go and you can see the ones you've overcome. Then, if one comes back to haunt you, you could re-activate it so…

                              We didn’t want to put stats behind any sort of wall – but we wanted an integrated way to let people know about it. By mentioning it as an unlock at level 2, we were trying to both get people’s attention on a cool part of the experience and also give you access to it as early as possible :)

                            • Weekly Quests Keep Reappearing as needing to do Today

                              Some of my weekly quests, like weighing myself, keep showing up every day and often even right after enter in my weight. It made it really confusing because I could have sworn that it said once a week, something which also a good practice when you are trying to lose weight because it can fluctuate during the week and even the day. I was so confused that I entered my weight for 3 days and now my quest which I'm supposed to repeat 6 times total will be done 2 weeks before its supposed to because it kept popping up…

                                Sounds like the reminders are set for every day. If you’re only supposed to do it once a week, I’d recommend editing the quest, finding the reminders, and turning them off every day except that the one you want to weigh yourself on (Sunday is my day for things like that, for example :))

                                Many power pack quests start with reminders on for every day, even if they aren’t a daily quest, so that as soon as you unlock it, it shows up in your To-Do list. But we always intended for people to edit the reminders to better suit your schedule :)

                              • Allies not showing up on dashboard.

                                I have 3 allies, all added successfully. They show up when I click on the ALLY navigation on the left of the screen. However... only the first of them shows up on my dashboard... so I can't see the others activities, can't comment on them, send suggestions, etc. It's really frustrating to me and to them. Your help is appreciated.

                                  In this case, everything is working correctly – it’s just confusing! Ally relationships aren’t mutual. They’re more like following someone on Twitter. Just because you follow someone, doesn’t necessarily mean they follow you. It sounds like three people became your allies, but only one of them invited you to be their ally. Let me know if that makes sense.

                                  So, I have a whole lot of quests to do this week, but I haven't set a specific date. Anyway, they don't seem to show up as me needing to do them, even though I clearly need to get started on them if I want to finish them all by the end of the week.

                                  I reckon they should appear.

                                    Need ability to upload photo avatars/icons in our profile. This way when we and our allies/heroes appear in our activity stream, we can easily distinguish them.

                                      You can do this by clicking your username in the upper right, going to EDIT MY PROFILE, and then click SECRET IDENTITY and then the edit button at the bottom of the screen. You’ll be able to upload a photo of yourself :)

                                    • Kudos, high fives, way to goes, love it

                                      A few little "what the heck do I do now" moments but you'll figure it out as more people start using this. I love it!! And I'll get back to you for both the good the bad and the "Okay, where did it go now" moments.

                                      And by the way, yes I would pay for more modules. For you guys the sky's the limit. New job, getting married, developing a skill (with user input), beating addictions, dealing with illnesses, etc.

                                        Thank you!!! Yes – we’ve definitely got a lot of bumps to figure out but we’re working on them slowly but surely and hope to continually make SuperBetter a little more..er.. superbetter all the time :)

                                          Right now SuperBetter is targeted toward achieving physical goals, like overcoming depression, a concussion, loosing weight, becoming fit. I am working on becoming a writer. I would like to encourage myself to keep writing every day. Doing something creative like this there are days when I feel I can't do it, or what I am writing is crap. Superbetter is already set up to do this well, but I can't put it in as my epic win or goals. I wish that were fixed so people could enter in their own epic win and or goal instead of having the…

                                            You can do this by selecting “Health Goal → Other” under challenge and then filling in your own unique challenge, like “Becoming a better writer”. And Epic Wins have always been fill-in-the-blank style – we’ve already had people use it to help them finish editing their novel, for instance, so feel totally empowered to create your own epic win that’s whatever you really want to do in your life :)
