Motivation Strategies

Start a Small Streak

Public Streaking Encouraged

289SHARES

Some pointers on starting your own streak:
  • Set a goal for your streak. A specific number is more clear and often more motivating than leaving it open-ended.
  • If you break your streak, don’t get discouraged. Just try to outdo yourself next time. Streaks aren’t about perfection. They’re about doing better.
  • Remember to reward yourself along the way as you reach streak milestones, and especially when you reach your goal or personal best streak.
  • Streak in public. Just by telling others what your streak is, you create some positive peer pressure to follow through. Plus it gives others the opportunity to help.
  • Start off with something you know you can succeed with, but don’t already do regularly. Think of a small habit you’d like to make or break.
