Since the big SP news dropped, I've seen several complaints about Sparkpoints going away, about how meaningful those points have been to people, about how excited people have been about leveling up. My initial reaction is GET A LIFE!
I'll admit that I have paid attention to points too. I've spun the wheel. I've spun the bonus wheel. I've deliberately done the necessary steps to accumulate enough points to earn the bonus spin.... all while thinking WHY AM I DOING THIS??? It doesn't matter.
And now I'm wasting minutes bitching about it.
I recently took a time-management class at work. Bottom line: Sparkpoints fall in the category of UNIMPORTANT. I daresay those of us who have fallen prey to chasing points are using it as a diversionary tactic to avoid dealing with the more important things in our lives. We maybe even fooled ourselves into thinking it was important! Oh, I need to get my Spark stuff done this morning before I move onto XYZ today.
There you go. There's a silver lining to SP going away. No more chasing points! More time for the IMPORTANT.
