Become Tenacious — Eliminate Undependable!

Improve TQ Act Now Factor 10I...

"I keep the momentum going until I finish each project I start."

If a project was worth starting, it deserves to be completed. Don't lose your momentum. Make some progress on every plan started. You've already put out some of the effort; now complete it so you can reap the rewards. Success builds success. Find all those half-finished projects lying around and finish them one-by-one.

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.

"Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity." ~ Alberta Flanders

TQ Factor 10I "Thin Line"...

Tenacious vs. Undependable is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 10I 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
 
Tenacious
Competent
Prolific
Persistent
Proud
Steadfast
    Undependable
Capricious
Uninspired
Lackadaisical
Incomplete
 

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 Tenacious... and a little LESS Undependable?

TQ Factor 10I CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are someone who can be counted on to consistantly finish each project you start. You are committed to seeing things through to the end, and determined to maintain the momentum on each project. You feel pride in the completion of your projects. You are rewarded by the achievement of every goal. With only a few projects currently incomplete, you're free to set new goals -- knowing that you have the time and the ability to devote to each one immediately.

TQ Factor 10I COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who typically loses interest, focus or faith before you get to the end of a project. What is it with all these unfinished projects? You get started; you make progress; but then -- they never get done. You move on to something else instead. Is it a lack of interest -- or is there nothing left but the hardest parts? Do you lack confidence -- or are you afraid of success? Whatever the cause, it may be easier or more fun to go on to the next thing. It's not necessarily more rewarding -- but it is easier at the moment.

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

Projects get completed. Goals are reached. Rewards are happily collected. You accumulate performance positives like "Tenacious, Competent and Prolific" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

Projects that are left incomplete are goals not reached. Negatives like "Undependable, Capricious and Uninspired" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"You should call this the Survival Edge..."

I've taken a dozen time management courses and read 20 books on improving my time management and organization skills. This goes WAY beyond anything I could ever hope for. It gave me a serious edge when I came up for my last job review, not to mention the confidence I now have.
