This website keeps you on track to your goals by having you put up money against yourself. Let’s say you want to spend three hours on Saturday working on a research paper. All you have to do is set that as a goal, assign a reasonable amount of money to it (say, $10-$20) and then indicate where you want that money to go if you don’t “stickK” to your goal. You can have the money go to a charity, family member, or several places. Usually when money is involved people get serious, so stickK.com might be the answer to a procrastinator’s struggle!
