About Monivate:

We’re just a group of guys who thought having a site to manage goals for friends would be an interesting social experiment.

We are curious to see if friendships can be strengthened by the act of giving for a purpose. Is there a win-win situation here: one achieves a goal and receives a reward, the other becomes an influential part of their friend’s success and their contributions would be shared for everyone to see.

There are many theories for motivation. One theory is that if you have announced your goal to your friends, or committed publicly to a goal, you’re more likely to achieve it, just so you don’t look like an ass.

This site is a play on psychological and social motivational factors.
