The mission of GetMotivatedBuddies is to leverage technology to measurably improve well-being for individuals and society.
Well-being measures quality of life across different domains. We focus on:
- Autonomy – You feel you can make meaningful choices in your life.
- Competence – You feel competent doing meaningful activities.
- Relatedness – You have meaningful relationships with others.
GetMotivatedBuddies is a system that aims to measurably improve autonomy, competence and relatedness for individuals and groups.
- We believe meaningful human relationships are at the core of individual and social change.
- We believe the power of the internet can be used to improve wellbeing.
- We believe technology overlooks the most potent technology accessible to everyone: our minds and our relationships.
- We believe there is a mental health crisis and a lack of available resources for people to get help.
- We believe the ad based business model on the internet creates bad incentives.
- We believe the ad based business model has deleterious consequences for an individual’s attention and wellbeing.
- We believe the deluge of information the internet has created makes life next to impossible to navigate and radically shifts our priorities.
- We believe the negative consequences of the internet can be mitigated.
- We believe human beings fundamentally have more in common with one another than that which separates them.
- We believe simply showing up is the greatest form of courage.
- We believe self-reflection leads to self-development.
- We believe in a spectrum of privacy. Some things are private and other things are public.
- We believe people and businesses have shared goals.
- We believe there is a space to connect with others meaningfully that sits between therapy and family and friends.
