Become Self-Initiated — Eliminate Overwhelmed!

Improve TQ Act Now Factor 10C...

"I break down complex tasks into immediately "do-able" steps."

You will always produce better results, personally and professionally, when you break large tasks into a sequence of immediately "do-able" actions. When seen in their entirety, complex projects appear too overwhelming. However, even the most complex task is only a sequence of smaller, "do-able" steps that can be taken one at a time. Isolate the individual steps, and begin them right away.

Remember, ACT NOW is the tenth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because nothing gets done without first getting started.

You CAN achieve your greatest dreams and aspirations. Simply improve your TQ Act Now Color.

"Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you." ~ Carl Sandburg

TQ Factor 10C "Thin Line"...

Self-Initiated vs. Overwhelmed is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 10C more often, and the following POSITIVE characteristics will automatically begin to accumulate and flow into to your performance—moving you TOWARDS the results you want and the success you desire.

Positives     Negatives
 
Self-Initiated
Systematic
Adept
Industrious
Knowledgeable
Confident
    Overwhelmed
Mystified
Doubtful
Confused
Uncertain
Stalled
 

Choose to take this action infrequently, or not at all, and the opposing NEGATIVE traits will dominate your performance and sabotaging your success... moving you AWAY from achieving your goals and aspirations.

Think about it. How much more successful would you be if you were a little MORE Self-Initiated... and a little LESS Overwhelmed?

TQ Factor 10C CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are someone who gains immediate control over complex tasks by seeing them as a series of simple steps. You work your way through big projects by reducing them to manageable tasks. Rather than focus on the complexity of the interrelated objectives, you break each task down into its most basic parts -- and get started right away. This process gives you the confidence to take on the impossible, because you know that success is as simple as completing one "do-able" step at a time.

TQ Factor 10C COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you may have trouble taking action on complex projects. You may become easily confused by complex tasks and the apparent difficulty in achieving them. By only seeing the big picture -- in all its complexity -- you tend to lose confidence in your ability to accomplish such a formidable endeavor. Instead of breaking these tasks into individual steps, you remain mystified by the entire process -- and delay indefinitely from taking that all important first step.

TQ Factor 10C BENEFIT: You have more power...

By reducing a complex task to a series of simple steps, you go from overwhelmed to full speed ahead in nothing flat. You accumulate performance positives like "Self-Initiated, Systematic and Adept" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 10C: Less Power...

Overwhelmed equals inert and incompetent. Negatives like "Overwhelmed, Mystified and Doubtful" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Worth 1000 Times the price paid..."

Been there... done that... and I'm not easily impressed. I've purchased thousands of dollars of books, seminars, video tapes, and an assortment of training aids that would fill a garage. Never have I been so impressed before. Simple, straight-forward and very structured. This is the LAST program I will ever need to take! I wish it would have been my FIRST...
