Penance helps you build habits and achieve goals by charging a fine when you screw up.
Are you a quitter? A flake? Do you set goals for yourself, then never follow through?
Yeah, me too. That’s why I made Penance.
I noticed that when I set personal goals, I struggle to get them done. But at work, I have no trouble doing what my boss tells me. When my wife asks me to run an errand, I remember. And when I tell my friends I’ll meet them somewhere, I’m always on time.
When there is someone or something holding me accountable, it’s easy to stay disciplined and get things done.
Penance brings the same accountability to my personal goals. When I want to do something, I put it in Penance and give it a fine. The moment I realize I’m not doing it, I open up Penance and pay that fine.
It’s amazing how much easier it is to do something, when not doing it costs me $5, $20, or $100.
If you struggle to make things happen, Penance might be the accountability you’re missing. I hope you give it a try.
