Law #1: Make it Laughably Simple, is possibly the hardest law for most streakers to follow. Why? Because we have been conditioned to think that if we don't do something with absolute intensity, it isn't worth doing. What rubbish. As Jeff Downs, Co-Author of Streaking, says, "Quality is the enemy of consistency." Are you the type of person that goes all in or not in at all? Streaking can help with that. What's the antidote you may ask? Two magic words: AT LEAST. Each streak you create should be so laughably simple that it is almost foolish not to do it. Write at least one sentence daily, read at least one paragraph daily, send at least one kind text message daily are just a few examples. Each one of these activities takes less than 3 minutes but did you pay attention to the magic words in each one of these streaks? The words, "at least", satisfy that inner monster that demands greater intensity. But here's a little secret:
YOU DON'T HAVE TO STOP ONCE YOU COMPLETE YOUR LAUGHABLY SMALL STREAK.
You can choose to send two text messages, read the whole chapter, or write the remainder of your novel. The choice is all yours. By choosing to Streak you will avoid burning out because no matter how much you choose today you will still be completing your streak the next day and the day after that. On days where you don't have the time, energy, or capacity to write an entire novel you will still have the opportunity to achieve a win by completing your laughably simple streak.
We invite you to revisit your current streaks and add the two magic words to each streak and evaluate if your streaks are laughably simple. Remember, streaks have a start date with no end date in mind so make sure you can sustain this effort and let the consistency of your actions compound in interest.
