Make Self Control Your Bitch
Once in a while I get the urge to shut down My Life Changes and walk away from it. When I review the statistics of users and how long the stay with the site it can be tremendously disheartening. Thankfully the occasional note of how the site has helped someone make life changes or become more optimistic keeps me going.
But what is the real issue here? The issue is that our long term life changes (losing weight, saving money, pursuing our dreams…etc) are constantly being shattered by our short term choices (Cookies, new iPad, and a million distractions from tweets, texting and apps).
In order to counteract weak human nature, immediate gratification and living in an age of excess, I’m creating a section where you share a contract with another person. This pledge or contract will make you accountable to another person in order to reach your goal(s). You may pledge to give that person your favourite CD, book, IPod, picture or even half a year’s salary.
It’s your choice what you decide to pledge. But I’ve got to make this more painful. I’ve discovered people need penalties if they miss their goals. So start that book, business, weight lose, or dream life, and be prepared to lose more than just a few minutes of your time here if you fail. It might just make you succeed.
I pledge to give ____ if I do not reach my goal, by this date __ __ __
On that note, what would make this site a 10/10 for YOU! I would love to hear your ideas.
