I have problems with impulse control. I also have a lot of difficulty with depression-induced procrastination. There are a number of important tasks that I keep putting off because I don't have the motivation. Might as well use one flaw to make the other better, right?

I recently bought a bunch of games. (...I spent too much money. That's the impulse control part.) I have not yet opened these games or even the boxes they came in. In order to open (and thereby play) any of these games, I need to accomplish a big task. This is a list to keep track of which game I'll get to play for which task, what the parameters of those tasks are, and what my progress is.

I am making this public to keep me accountable. Even knowing that some hypothetical someone could stumble upon this page and then go, "Oooh, I see you have played X when you haven't marked it as complete yet!" will keep my impulse issues under control and prevent me from opening a box that I haven't earned.
