Spark Points

Monday, July 16, 2012

It amazes me how motivating spark points can be. What are they anyway? A trophy on your page. Yet, everytime I am close to a new award, I become diligent about acquiring every available point for that day! On an average day, I track food and exercise, that is about it. If a friend posts an interesting blog, I will comment. Other activities, like message boards and huddle with team, not so much. But, if I am close to a new trophy, I will do all of the above! It is a great way to encourage people to be active on the site and communicate with other members.

    Yes it is a motivator. I also found that when I increased my comments to others, I received more in return, and sometimes the information seemed to help someone else. emoticon

    I agree with all of the comments! I too try to get every point that I can when getting clos to a new award! It must be our inner competitiveness that makes us like that!

    I agree. We don't get anything for them, but they sure are motivating. For me, it's being competitive with myself.
