7 Simple Tricks to Enhance Your Gaming Performance

Computer gaming is pretty popular. New games are introduced every day and each new game has better graphics and features.

If you do not like losing, then you should always look for ways to improve your skills and become a better player.

There are several things that can affect your performance.

Here are some useful tips that can help you improve your computer gaming skills.


1. Small things make a difference:

Small and simple things can help a lot in improving your game. It requires concentration and active mindedness. You can improve your focus by changing a few things. Try not to listen to music while playing.

When you are playing and listening to music at the same time your focus is divided. A part of your brain is concentrating on the game, but some part is focused on the music. It is better to increase the volume of game sound effects.

Sound effects are an excellent way of increasing the concentration. If you do not want to be disturbed then you should prefer to wear headphones. It will cut off all the outside noises and all your focus is dedicated to the game.

2. Brightening the screen:

Most of the games have a combination of dark and muddled colors because it helps make the colors stand out. It provides an excellent contrast. It is good at offering a certain mood, but it can make it difficult to see everything.


You have to make sure that the brightness of the screen is maximized. Try to adjust the colors so that you do not have trouble seeing things clearly. You will be so much better at playing if the graphics of the game are clear and obvious.

You have to be comfortable so make sure the computer gaming desk is at level and brightness is perfect.

3.Customizing the controls to your liking:

There are several games which allow you to change the settings of the game so that you are comfortable. You should take full advantage of the customization feature. Do not rush into playing the game.

Take your time to explore the settings and know how you can use them to your advantage. Make sure you have the best sensitivity level. Changing the settings can improve the game a lot.


4. No shame in learning from others:

Whenever you get a chance to learn from someone who is better than you at the game you should not miss that opportunity. You can always learn new tricks from other people. Each and every game has its tricks and strategies.

The internet is an excellent platform. You can always take advantage of other people’s expertise. You can find online tips and they are highly useful. You can also use youtube and look for videos of other people playing. evonews provides news on gaming and how technology is actually evolving for gaming.

You can learn from other people’s reactions to certain situations.

5.Being competitive is good:

You can always improve your skills by being competitive. The best way of getting better is to play with people who are better than you. You should not be afraid to compete with people with a better skill set.


When you compete with better players it will be a challenge and playing is much more exciting when there is more competition.

6.Make sure graphic card drivers are up to date:

Improving the graphics can have a lot of impact on your performance. The updating process is simple and easy. It will take just minutes to update the drivers and the impact it has on your performance is huge, so it is better not to ignore updating the drivers.

7.Strengthen the hand muscles:

If you are playing computer games for more than an hour daily then the hands and fingers will start to feel the strain and with time they will become less responsive. It can a lot of effect on the performance.

There are simple exercises such as tennis ball squeezing or thumb opposition that can be effective in improving the performance.

These are some of the simple and easy tips that can have a lot of positive impact on your gaming skills.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals



    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.



      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.


      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.



          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.


            You can check out Access and the Office Suite here and Bento here.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.


            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
