Let’s talk about what you accomplish during a given day, and how that makes you feel. This kind of thing is more important than many of us might think, and it can help you to plan your routine in a way that enhances your quality of life.
When neuroscientists look at people’s responses to everyday routines and challenges, what they find is an emotional payoff linked to accomplishing something. Some of us like to make detailed to-do lists and check them off. Others use gaming venues as a way to get this sort of feeling of triumph in their day!
Think about it – there’s that little hit you get when you achieve your bingo line or the slot machine or video poker pays off. Or to put it another way, there’s the feeling you get watching the little ball roll around on the roulette wheel. Nobody knows where it will land! It’s an explorative feeling – that’s part of it- but it’s also tied to that feeling of achievement in outcomes.
Simple and Complex Tasks
We think that one of the reasons that accomplishing small clear goals resonates with people is that so many of today’s other goals are infuriatingly vague and frustrating.
Think about it – whether it’s your nightmare of a mortgage lender, the car finance people or your ISP, everybody’s trying to get in your pocket. Documentation requirements for everything from membership renewal to getting into your favorite website create endless hassle and multistage tasks that tend to make us feel a little bamboozled. The essence of modern life, for many people, is tinged with the confusion of working with dozens of bureaucracies to get basic things done – processes that really belong to the 20th and 21st centuries … and that are nothing to brag about.
That’s not to suggest that you should just go to an arcade or casino and check out – most of our regulars don’t spend all day gaming instead of taking care of their work or maintaining their properties!
You can take a little time off, and then get back to the grind. But that time off reinforces our will and our sense of confidence in various key ways. Aside from what we mentioned above, there’s the social component of coming together in a place like Venetian Arcade to celebrate something a little different in your day. You can also check out our events and complimentary food and beverage offers on the website. It’s all there for you so come on down!
