According to a scientific study, it takes between 18 to 254 days to develop a new habit; 66 days for it to become a routine. The people at Pentabase, however, believe that a habit can be developed much, much simpler: just use their app, Goalkeepin.
Goalkeepin is a mobile app that can help every individual reach their goals. Be it financial, lifestyle, health, relationship, or hobbies, just use the app, select a said goal, set a viable timeframe—and you’re ready to go.
The catch? Users have to input a minimum of $10 in order to set a goal. If you achieve 85 percent or more of the set goal, your money will be reimbursed. And that’s not all—it also puts users closer towards winning a grand prize from Pentabase of $1,000. It goes without saying, though, that any percentage below 85 percent, you lose both the money and the opportunity.
The reason why the app works in such a stringent methodology is because the brand is inspired by a 2018 Cornell University study. In it, researchers discovered that individuals who received immediate, frequent rewards for completing small tasks reported more interest and greater pleasure in their work, compared to those who received delayed rewards only given out at the end of a long project.
Pentabase hopes that with that in mind, its app Goalkeepin can create a much more meaningful and significant way for users to reach their goals, and become better versions of themselves.
Co-founder Andrew Lee shared that there are over 100 challenges like waking up early, drinking at least two litres of water per day in Goalkeepin. He thus hopes that the app will “assist users in improving their lives by repeating small habits in an easy and straightforward way”.
