Use The Sp Point System To Your Advantage

This Sparked Me!

I aim to get all the points I can each day for one important reason (besides being competitive). The point system makes sure I am tracking, reading, learning, sharing, giving, goal-oriented, eating well and exercising. In other words, I keep myself "balanced" by doing all of the "sparkpoints".

    Very succintly said! At first I tried to get every point I could each day. Now I aim for 75-100. I am down 88lbs since last January ('09) and attribute it largely to all the healthy things SP has taught me, little by little, via all the SparkPoints!

    This is why I started working the points list, and why, three years later, I still enjoy it every day I can! I was a babe-in-the-cyber-woods when I started on Spark. The Search option - that one point - literally taught me HOW to use the internet.

I don't know what a "point stealer" is - someone who fakes the actions to earn points? I earn every single point: I read the articles and blogs, enter my food and fitness honestly, and every post I make is for a reason (not to earn points).

"Working the Sparkpoints list" is my advice for all new Sparkers! It gives you the best overall viewpoint of the tools and resources, and from that you can learn what you need and what you want to do for your personal Spark program. Good Advice!

    All i can say is:
Whether you are a point stealer or a decent sparker SPARK DOES WORK!!!!!
without even noticing pushing you toward self cognition
