Become Responsible — Eliminate Irresponsible!

Improve TQ Attitude Factor 3A...

"I take full responsibility for how my day turns out."

You are responsible for where you are right now. This doesn't mean you caused everything that's happened to you prior to this point in time. But in each moment, you can choose how you're going to react and what you are going to do from this moment forward. If your attitude, actions or situations are not what you want, take charge and change them. Don't be a victim of your circumstances. By taking full responsibility for your actions, you retain the power to make the best of your circumstances -- before the day is done.

Remember, ATTITUDE is the third color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because, even though you may have a passion for what's most important, until you also believe that you can make a real difference in your life, and those around you, nothing's going to happen.

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

"The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them." ~ George Bernard Shaw

TQ Factor 3A "Thin Line"...

Responsible vs. Irresponsible is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 3A 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
 
Responsible
Empowered
Accountable
Powerful
Self-Determined
    Irresponsible
Powerless
Unaccountable
Passive
Cynical
 

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 Responsible... and a little LESS Irresponsible?

TQ Factor 3A CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are someone who takes responsibility for how things turn out. You take charge of your day, and waste little time complaining to others when things don't go as planned. You power through the best and worst of circumstances. You take full responsibility for where you are at each moment, and for what you're going to do next. Rarely do you stay stuck in a bad situation. Instead, you stay focused on your goals, and do whatever you can to make them real. Each day, you become victorious over circumstances.

TQ Factor 3A COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who surrenders easily to your current circumstances. You are willing to push forward when things go well, but then pull back during difficult times. By focusing on a negative situation, or the power others have over you, you forfeit your power to initiate an improvement to the status quo. Rather than pursue new options, you generally stop to criticize and complain. You seek out people who will agree that it's something or someone else's fault -- and there's nothing that can be done about it. Each day, you become the victim.

TQ Factor 3A BENEFIT: You have more power...

If there is something you want, you don't wait for fate. You act to make it happen. You accumulate performance positives like "Responsible, Empowered and Accountable" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 3A: Less Power...

You relinquish all power to make a difference when you give up personal responsibility. Negatives like "Irresponsible, Powerless and Unaccountable" 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.
