BetchaIcan is a fun-based website, aimed at helping people achieve their goals or targets. BetchaIcan is owned by BetchaIcan Ltd, based in the United Kingdom, currently offering sites both in the U.S. and the U.K.
The idea for BetchaIcan came about when I found that every time I set myself a task to do, or a target to achieve, I did it best when I had a real, tangible reason or reward to do it. And it started a few years back:
Being a bit of a regular social drinker, I had always considered having a month off alcohol, however always found it very hard to do so, when I'd often have so many things going on during a month which would involve enjoying a glass of wine or three.
Friends never helped either, as they'd be the first to say..."oh go on...just have one!"
I then had a mutual bet with a friend who had a similar desire, to stop for a month and reward ourselves with a weekend on a health farm if we succeeded.
Interestingly, what I then found was, when I told people I'd made a bet for a month, they no longer tried to tempt me to have a quick beer as it was very quickly and easily accepted that I had made a bet and that was that, I wasn't drinking for a month!
Since then, I've been making similar bets with myself, if I have no-one else to take up the challenge, for all sorts of different reasons, and have found I am best motivated when I use a carrot and stick approach, rewarding myself if I achieve and giving an amount to charity if I fail............. that way somebody always wins!
I hope that you enjoy using the BetchaIcan as a way of helping you incentivise yourself to hit a goal or target, and that you find it a useful tool to give yourself a pat on the back when you do what you set out to do, knowing that if you don't quite make it, someone in need will benefit!
Best wishes and happy motivating!
