Overcome your laziness with "Challengers."

Updated: Mar 5

<Overcome your laziness with "Challengers."> -Make money for achieving your small goals. Are you lazy? I am. (Honestly, I don't even want to write this article now.) If I were as rich as Elon Musk, I wouldn't do anything. However, the billionaire mogul once said: "Work like hell. You just have to put in 80 to 100 hour weeks every week…" And there is no way I'm doing that. I just want to put in the minimum possible hours at work. Even for that, I need motivation. I even wish someone would force me to do it. Luckily, this Korean app called "Challengers (챌린저스)" is there for lazy bums like me and you. A few days ago, I was looking through the Google Play Store for new games. After hours of playing games, I felt guilty about all the procrastination. So, I started looking for motivational apps. And I found out that "Challengers" was on top of this category. I've tried many motivational apps before, but they didn't work out for me. But I knew this one was different. What makes it different? Before we delve into it, consider these questions: Would you give money to someone else for no reason? No, you wouldn't. Would you want to get money for free? Yes, you would. Long story short, this app makes you lose money if you slack off and gives you money if you work hard. Once you sign in, you can see many "challenges" you can join: recommending a book every day, waking up at 6 every day, drinking 6 glasses of water every day, studying for an hour every day, etc. (You can also create your own challenge.) Let's say I joined a "study for an hour every day" challenge, which would last for 2 weeks. You decide how much money to bet on the challenge. (It depends on each challenge, but it seems like the bet usually ranges from $10 to $200.) If you achieve 85% of the goal, you get fully refunded. If you complete 100%, you get back more than you put in. (The size of the payoff depends on how much money you had bet.) To prove you are fulfilling the challenge properly, you have to take a photo and upload it each time. (Example: For the study challenge I mentioned, you should take a photo of you studying at the beginning and the end.) The app has amassed more than 100,000 downloads since its launch in 2018. And it has a high score of 4.6 on the Google Play Store with many positive comments: "I've developed myself more since I started using this app," "This is really nice! I began to take vitamin supplements thanks to this app." I haven't started using this app for myself yet, but I am sure it is more practical than any other apps for boosting motivation. The core message of this app is simple yet novel; you better work your ass off unless you want to lose your money. I think that is the reason it is appealing to many people. If you think you are lazy, why don't you become one of the challengers? @official_theasians theasians.org
