Your farmer can now sit back, drink beer, and do nothing while all the crops are harvested and the pigs truffled. You, the real person however, become his labourer but at a much much quicker pace.
Then go harvest your crops. The farmer can’t get out, so everything harvests quickly because you are never waiting for farmer to get to the spot. Saves you time. And farmer now has a passive income – doing nothing but drinking beer and watching his money grow.
This however inspired me to build a labyrinth out of haybales and assorted trees and such. When anyone arrives at my farm, they only need to click the ground beside the wishing well and farmer will walk the entire labyrinth. My purpose is of course to provide a magical event. Upon arrival you make a wish. As Farmer walks the labyrinth, you visualize the wish coming true.. imagining the details of the moment it comes true and the feelings when it comes true. It’s a mini moment of “law of attraction” – visualizing the results you want and putting it out into the universe for it to start its ‘workings.’
So, as you can see, I have found value in Farmville.. now justifying the addiction to checking my farm every day. Farmville now enhances what I do in my personal coaching practise, visualizations for answers and clarity are tools I use regularly. Once the client is clear on what they really do want, we often employ visualizing in detail the moment that their ‘wishes’ do come true. Okay, fine. I won’t send them all off to farmville.. but now you ‘get’ how I can justify my being hooked.
So, Farmville continues to be crazy silly game that people are hooked on. Those smart Farmville Creators keep adding little treasures that get us all excited – like baby elephants.
If you haven’t read my previous post on Farmville.. you may want to. Exactly what else is going on in the world, while ’40 million users a month’ are distracted by Farmville?
At least, perhaps, in our distraction, we can either imagine the moment of sitting in a lounge chair creating a passive income, or go further to imagine your dreams coming true. Might as well use the time wisely!
I still must say: If you are not on Farmville, don’t go there. I’m sure you have better things to do with your time.
