What is a portal?

A portal is a metaphor for a challenge, project, habit, idea, skill, exercise, workout, etc.

Each portal has a certain number of steps. Each step can represent 1 day, 1 hour, 1 approach, or whatever measure works for you.

You make up a game for yourself and play it.
Examples of portals:
100 hours of learning or mastering a skill.
100 days to master a habit and/ or follow a daily routine.
100 hours to implement an idea.
100 steps (15 minutes per step) to reflect on or study a specific topic.
100 hours of meditation100 steps of meditation (30 minutes per step)
100 steps working out (30 minutes per step)
100 steps to track the way you want.

You can create your own portals and even choose different themes to enhance your experience.
The more abstract the theme, the better. You take action in life and track your progress through the portals.
It may seem unnecessary, awkward, and unimportant, but this is how we develop our brain by creating new neurons. In this way, we not only teach our brains to love challenges, but also to think out of the box.
Over time, the potential of this game will unfold for you, just as any game will unfold over time.

This game will develop your mental ability.
Because you are going to spend more time thinking about your life, learn how to challenge yourself and how to think like a detective.
You will develop your creativity through metaphorical maps. Just track your progress, at least 1 step per day. That’s all you need.

Goal trackers... what are they for?

The most important thing is getting reminders.
Once you've built a relationship with the app, it will start helping you to focus your attention on what you choose to do.

To experience the full potential of the application, hold out for as long as you can, so you can build a relationship with the application. You probably already have a relationship with other apps, like YouTube, messengers, and social networking apps.

What is gamification, and how it helps me to become more productive?

Gamification is an idea to apply game elements and game thinking to any process.

A great example of gamification is the language learning app Duolingo. They use points, badges, tournaments, leagues, day streak and other game mechanics. Portals.academy is similar to Duolingo, whereby we learn anything. In portals.academy we apply story (we imagine that we are students) and metaphor game mechanics and much more.

1) Portals use the story around practice. “We imagine ourselves that we are students of legendary academy. To graduate, we need to jump through portals. With each portal, you notice that you are changing. Get stronger and faster.

2)Portals remind you about your challenges. Reminders is a very strong game mechanics that will make a great impact on your growth. One of the biggest challenges is whether we set goals, set a new habit, or challenge ourselves, and after a few days, or completely forget about them. Our brains resist challenging tasks and try to stay in the comfort zone. Portals remind us about our decisions, the same way the coach calls every day and asks, “Did you make a step today?”

3) Portals creates a visual representation of your growth. One of the popular games on the planet to see how you change. Track your progress and finish 100 portals to see how your dance will change.

4) Portals use game mechanic “levels and XP.” With every step, you will gain XP and a new level. With a higher level, you can get access to new portals. XP and level represent that we are changing all the time, and the process of eduation is the same like a game. You teach your brain to play this game and give you more energy to learn complicated things. You will see that you will change with every 5 or 10 levels. It's inevitable. And also show that there is no reason to stay on current level, the process of education is a journey of our life.

5) Portals use metaphor game mechanics that help to train imagination. Every portal has a unique and fun theme. In life, you dance, and in the portal, you are the magician.
