About this app

▌stickK: the poster child of Behavioral Economics (featured in over 60 books and 20 textbooks) turns 14 years old!
▌As seen on The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Psychology Today, Bloomberg, The Economist, NPR, LA Times … and lots more!
Created by a Behavioral Economists from Yale University, stickK is a goal-setting platform, habit tracker and online community of goal-setters. Our platform is designed to motivate and help you achieve your goals by leveraging the power of incentives, financial accountability and social accountability to your advantage.
No matter what your goal is - meditate, learn a language, lose weight, quit smoking or drinking, exercise more often… stickK can motivate and help you achieve it! End procrastination once and for all. Hold yourself accountable. Turn your goals into habits.
Trick yourself into a virtuous cycle, turn your goal into a habit and stop procrastinating once and for all: create a Commitment Contract between present you and future you.

1. Set your goal - ANY goal (lose weight, self-care, meditation, finish thesis…) and a timeline to achieve it
2. Invite someone - a friend, coworker or family member - to hold you accountable and verify your progress
3. Put your money where your mouth is! Set a price on inaction - add Stakes to your commitment (optional)
4. Track your progress by reporting your successes or failures daily, weekly OR at the end of your Commitment Contract


- Invite a Referee that can verify your progress reports. They’ll have the final word on your Report and will be an essential part of your journey.
- We’ll take their word over yours, so pick wisely!


- Add Stakes to your commitment and increase the chances of success
- If you’re unsuccessful, stickK will hold you accountable and send the amount at stake you pledged to:
- A friend
- Charity (from a list of 20+ 501(c)(3) organizations)
- Or our most popular option:
- An Anti Charity (an organization or foundation you fervently oppose)

Get an extra kick of motivation and select an Anti-Charity. Research shows that people work harder to ensure that their money never falls into the wrong hands ;)

- Upload pictures of your progress and share with friends & family
- Invite Supporters to become your personal cheerleaders and source of motivation


- Track your routine from start to finish in your Commitment Journal: record your thoughts, comments & – see yourself grow!

Frequently happens that my one commitment does not load. I try to get to it later on a desktop but sometimes forget. I am sure that 'this is a feature and not a bug' that is advantageous for them. Along with the minimum $5 commitment start and $5 minimum per reporting period ... SOMEONE please create a decent alternative to stickk

App feels like a beta version, though im still using it bc i hope they will quickly fix the mistakes. Layout is pretty neat, though you sometimes get lost in it when you go to your friend's commitment for example - no easy way to get back to home page. Keeps crashing a lot. Tried to be a referee for a friend - didnt work, keeps saying "pending". Pictures take a long while to load to journal for some reason?? Reporting a commitment is also a hassle.

Great concept. Worked better than most things for keeping me working toward my goal. Unfortunately, the app doesn't work right. Too often I was marked as unsuccessful when I submitted my report on time. The Submit Report button doesn't always work. The time stamp is wrong. You have to check your email for a confirmation that it went through. The staff are friendly, helpful, and willing to refund to correct errors but I don't want to have to email for corrections multiple times a month.
