Overview

Greater Than Goals. More Powerful Than Habits. Discover Your Streaks!

Most of us have a vision for ourselves and who we want to be: a top-notch professional in our field; a fantastic parent and friend; a physically fit, healthy person; someone who sets and achieves goals in multiple areas of life. But, amid the busy-ness of our days and all the competing demands, we often fall short of our hopes for ourselves. How could we possibly fit in another activity to become the person we’ve always dreamed we could be?

In this practical, step-by-step guide, authors Jeffery Downs and Jami Downs show you how, by introducing the art of streaking (not that kind!) to gain mastery in whatever area you choose to improve. To streak is to deliberately select a laughably simple activity—such as writing one sentence a day, doing seven push-ups a week, making one cold call a month—to repeat and record it over time, and to build a community around it as you do. As you create this structure for consistent wins, your actions align with your vision for yourself, and your confidence grows.

Drawing on examples from winning athletes and teams, businesses, and communities to demonstrate the laws of streaking, the authors reveal how to choose exactly the right activities that will propel you forward. Streaking reveals a tried and true methodology and the key strategies to progress in your life, for incredible results. You will learn how to:
• successfully integrate daily, weekly, or monthly activities that align with your goals;
• overcome natural tendencies that keep you stuck;
• stack streaks that support your desired results, and then level up;
• start again (or revise your streak), if you falter;
• and much more.

Whether you seek to improve in your professional life, in personal pursuits, or both, Streaking gives you the tools to purposely advance, to transform yourself into the person you’ve always wanted to be.
