Reason No 1 - It is Scientific

Majority of financial goals remain unachieved because they weren't proper goals to begin- with.

The most common financial aspiration I hear from people is "I want to be Rich"! Being rich can differ from person to person, how do you define it?

How much money will you need to call yourself rich?

Also, when are you likely to be rich? – Maybe in 5 years or 10 years?

If your goal is not well defined, then your means and motivation to achieve it cannot be efficient.

The Tick-a-week Savings Challenge helps you Gamify your savings goal for 2018. It helps you clearly define your goal for the year, the milestones on the way and at the end of the year, it leaves you with money as savings.

When you apply game mechanics to your goals, they become more substantial, more structured and thus more achievable.

Domino Effect - Tick-a-week savings challenge.jpgAccording to Charles Duhigg, "Some habits seem to have a disproportionate influence on our lives. "When a keystone habit starts changing, it seems to set off a chain reaction that changes other habits as well.

And in a lot of people’s lives, a keystone habit is exercise. When they start exercising, they start using their credit cards less. They start procrastinating less. They do their dishes earlier."
