Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

First you specify a goal you want to reach. You set a deadline when you should have passed this goal. You put a price on your goal and enter a supervisor. Once the deadline passed, we ask your supervisor if you passed your goal. If you have, everything is okay. If you haven't, you'll get charged the price you set.

What's a supervisor?

A supervisor can be anyone you know that is able to check if you actually passed your goal. Supervisors can be friends or co-workers. We contact the supervisor per e-mail after the deadline you set. Supervisors need to be objective and truthful, since if they lie about you reaching your goal, it defeats the purpose.

Who gets the money?

Not you, not your supervisor friend, but this site!

Why don't you give the money to the supervisor?

Because that'd make them instantly not objective to judge anymore.

Why don't you give the money to a charity?

That doesn't work either as it'll decrease the odds of you reaching your goal. You'll think "oh it goes to charity if I fail". This way, you actually will do what you wanted to do.

How effective is this technique?

The original version of this site called GoFuckingDoIt has been running for a year. On there, 83% of participants reached their goals. So yes it works.

Why does it work?

Money is one of the greatest incentives around. And the only bigger incentive than money itself is losing it. KeepYourFuckingResolutions.com pushes this concept to the extreme.

What happens to my credit card details?

We need your card to charge you if you fail to reach your goal. If you reach your goal, you're not charged. We do not store your credit card details. Our payment processor Stripe stores them for us. After your deadline passes, your credit card details are removed. You are only charged, if you fail to reach your goal. P.S. We never touch your credit card details as they're stored by Stripe.

What happens to my email?

We need your email to tell you if your supervisor said you succeeded or failed your goal. After that we remove it.

Who made this?

I made this because I've been applying this technique for 2 years now with friends to get me and them reach our goals. It worked so well that I made GoFuckingDoIt and now this New Year's version of it, so anyone can reach their resolutions now.

Are you making the world worse?

Well, WIRED seems to think so. But it's mostly a fun exercise. It doesn't make a whole lot of money, but it does help people to get more stuff done. So why not keep at it and grind some people's gears?
