One method to effectively motivate people is by ‘carrots and sticks’. Resolute.li is a web application to motivate people in achieving their goals using this mechanism. In Resolute.li, users created resolutions, set specific deadlines and checklists. The user could then invite his friend as a stakeholder that the user promise to pay him if the user DOES NOT achieve the resolution.
With a new resolution page created, the user could then shared it within his social network. He could invite friends to lend their support. On the other hand, he may also have friends wanting to motivate him by setting another stake that is given to him if he successfully accomplish the goal. So with this web application, we hope to help our users to unleash their potential and better achieve their goals.
