Can you stickk to your diet?

Read a snippet somewhere that made me do this search.

A new English site is challenging people to Stickk to their goals – and not just dieting, though not surprisingly that is goal #1. In the most likely way possible, making you bet money against yourself. The site is based on the belief that people are better motivated to meet goals if they have something to lose. So Stickk.com allows users to make bets against their goals, and if they don’t meet these goals, they lose money to a pre-picked charity, or an (I like this one!) anti-charity – an organization they despise.

I thought it was a really interesting concept; still surfing, but from what I see, while things like committing to exercise or diet or quitting the butt may be at the top of the list, there are things like committing to creating less trash, to produce Art (boy, do I need a push there!) or improving English skills. Basically choose the goal, set yourself some deadlines, choose friends to watch from the by-side and choose a referee. Then you’re ready to go.
