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?
Drawing on examples from winning athletes and teams, businesses, and communities to demonstrate the laws of streaking, Jeffery reveals how to choose exactly the right activities that will propel you forward.

• 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.
