One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is about what specific apps, websites, sources, courses, and other tools we use to make stuff.
In this episode we’ll get geeky with you and dive deep into that exact subject.
How do you respond when someone asks, “How are you today?”
If you’re like most people you respond with something like:
- “I’m hangin' in there”
This may come as news to you, but you get to decide how you process your day.
In this episode I give you some reasons why you should carefully consider the instructions you give your brain, because what you say is often what you experience.
Tip Of The Week
If one of your goals this year is to take a trip…enroll in course…get in better shape…or anything else you’re likely to not do when it’s no longer convenient…today’s tip is for you!
Most of us struggle to achieve our goals, that’s because there’s a big difference between having a goal and achieving a goal—stickK works by helping people eliminate this gap by using a Commitment Contract.
A Commitment Contract is a binding agreement you sign with yourself to ensure that you follow through with your intentions—and it does this by utilizing the psychological power of loss aversion and accountability to drive behavior change.
By asking users to sign Commitment Contracts, stickK helps users define their goal, acknowledge what it’ll take to accomplish it, and leverage the power of putting money on the line to turn that goal into a reality.

Quote Worth Note
Seth Godin tells this story in “What To Do When It’s Your Turn (And It’s Always Your Turn”…
“Stephen King, one of the most beloved, famous and bestselling authors ever, often goes to writer’s conferences. After he talks for a little bit he says, ‘Any questions?’
Inevitably, someone raises their hand—I’m paraphrasing here—and says, ‘Mr. King, you are one of the most beloved, famous, and bestselling authors ever. What kind of pencil do you use to write your books?’ It’s almost as if knowing what kind of pencil Stephen King uses will help them be more like Stephen King.”
It’s not the pencil.
It’s not the computer.
It’s not the app.
Or as they say in music… “It’s not the gear, it’s the ear.”
