“Desire is the most important element of habit and skill development, not streaks.“
On this in-between-seasons (“tweener”) Wednesday Mind Bullet episode we discuss the subject of streaks.
Many people confuse and misinterpret the connection between streaks and habits. Streaks are something you do every day, and we often think we have to do something every day—have a streak—to develop a habit.
Habit and skill development are more dependent upon consistency over time, not doing something every day. When we follow the PARR methodology, we incrementally develop new habits over time.
Streaks are a great tool (MG’s burpee streak) for fitness and productivity and can be powerful mental and physical challenges. But streaks are not required for habit development.
Listen in for more on the difference between streaks and habits; the physical and emotional downsides of streaks; and how desire, knowledge, and capacity to perform the behavior —not streaks—are the most important tools when acquiring habits and skills.
