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.

Go from eating pizza and soda to mastering delicious healthy meals.

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.

Spar uses financial incentives and social dynamics to make you better in a way that’s both fun and extremely effective.

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.
