StickK.com: An online tool to help you keep on top of your goals.

Readers of Moolala – the book know how passionate I am about the power of both goal–setting and community. Determining what you want, then letting your friends and family know what it is helps you access the support, ideas and accountability that they can provide. Now there is a online way to make engaging your community even easier. It is called SticK.com.

In their words, “stickK was developed by Yale University economists who tested the effectiveness of Commitment Contracts through extensive field research. We all need help to reach our goals – whether it’s incentives, or support from others. Years of economic and behavioral research show that people who put stakes – either their money or their reputation – on the table are far more likely to actually achieve a goal they set for themselves.”

I have registered my goal to “hit 80% occupancy on our vacation rental” this season. This is important me because it is how the mortgage gets paid. I have chosen a referee and added supporters for my goal. I’m really interested to see how it all works and think this cool (and free) service is worth checking out.
