Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal - Henry Ford

>> 7 November 2008

When we finally get to the point where we have fixed ourselves one or several goals, it is always difficult to stick to them. Keeping the potential end result in view is hard when you have to do it on your own. So the best way to stick to your goals is to tell people about them and get them to help you.

Want to quit smoking? Run a marathon? Loose weight?

You might want to get in the help of Stickk.com. This website allows you to select your goal, set the stakes, pick a referee and invite your friends to cheer you on. If you want to increase your chances of sticking to your goal, commit to a money stake. Let's say you want to loose 20 pounds in 20 weeks. You commit to 10$ a week and pay 200$. If you manage to loose what you said you would you get the money back. For every pound not lost in a certain week, the money will be deducted and given to the recipient you designated. So you can even connect this to a good cause.

On the site you report on your regular progress, your referee can monitor your progress and give tips, and your friends can cheer you on.

My goal is to enter my goal into Stickk.com...as soon as I get around to it :-)
