Dr. Kraus - GoalBud Chief Psychology Advisor
Research shows that 91% of goals are not achieved. Why? Famous people and powerful brands tell you that you can "Just Do It". They can inspire you to want to achieve a goal, but then they leave you hanging.
Goal achievement success rates are dismal, but they don't need to be. We have a research backed approach to achievement that will make the difference.
Science calls them "Accountability Partners", and we call them "Goal Teams", and research shows that they work.
One highly focused study produced an average increase of 78% in the likelihood of success in goal achievement when using the process modeled by GoalBud.
We all know the power of social networking, and the downsides. GoalBud harnesses that power for good. Social networking is proven to release dopamine from the "likes" and other reactions, and that is partly why it is so addicting. The connection that you can achieve is useful for accountability, and the dopamine you get from feedback can keep you focused on your goals. Goal Teams deliver goals.
