How to get your shit together in 2017
Let’s face it: you’re a mess.
Were you kind to your body in 2016? You were not. You probably added a few extra pounds. You ate more sugar and carbs last year than you should eat in a lifetime. And every night before you go to bed, you bathe in sleep-disrupting blue light from the devices you’re addicted to.
Your mind isn’t doing much better. When was the last time you read a real book? Learned a new language? Challenged yourself to master a new skill? These are normal things that normal, healthy people do. And you’re doing basically none of them.
And here’s the rub: it’s your fault. You are failing yourself every. single. day. Of course, you’re in good company. None of us really has our shit together. Work, family, personal life — who has the time to do it all? Who has the energy and self-discipline to not just survive, but thrive?
No one, by default. That’s why we made Spar: a new game that lets you challenge your friends to do things — or pay the price for slacking off.
Want to get in shape? Set up a two month challenge to exercise every day, with a $20 penalty for each miss. We guarantee you won’t miss much — and when you do, the money goes into a pot that is paid to the winner at the end of a challenge.
Spar works because losing money sucks. By making you pay to break a commitment, it keeps you accountable — not just to yourself, but to your friends as well. Because let’s face it: it’s going to take a village to fix your mess.
The best part is, Spar is also really fun. Watch your friends progress through their short video check-ins. Post your own and maybe even talk a little trash. If you’re like our early users, you’ll make lots of improvement and you’ll have a good time doing it.
2016 was rough. Make 2017 better by making yourself better.
