Become Well-Planned — Eliminate Haphazard!

Improve TQ Make Plans Factor 5A...

"I maintain a written action plan for each of my major goals."

A goal without a plan is merely a wish without a hope. There is no way you can accomplish something if you don't know how to proceed. Written plans are the essential instructions for how to reach a goal. A plan is simply a detailed map outlining the steps to accomplish your goal as quickly and easily as possible. At a minimum, it includes a complete list of objectives and resource requirements -- all organized in correct chronological order.

Remember, MAKE PLANS is the fifth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because a goal without a plan is merely a wish without a hope.

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

"Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success." ~ Stephen A. Brennan

TQ Factor 5A "Thin Line"...

Well-Planned vs. Haphazard is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 5A 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
 
Well-Planned
Well-Prepared
Informed
Logical
Methodical
Detail-Oriented
    Haphazard
Shortsighted
Unprepared
Uninformed
Uncertain
Directionless
 

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 Well-Planned... and a little LESS Haphazard?

TQ Factor 5A CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you have both a goal and a plan. You're inspired enough to have goals -- and methodical enough to develop written plans. With a detailed plan in hand, you're already halfway there. You've overcome the fear and uncertainty of not knowing what to do next, and have a clear set of directives with an excellent chance of success. With a detailed written plan in hand, you proceed confidently toward each of your major goals.

TQ Factor 5A COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone whose goals often remain nothing but illusive wishes. You rarely make the progress you'd like. It may not be from lack of effort. You are working hard but too much time is spent on activities that prove to be of little benefit. Lacking specific instructions, you have neither a clear direction for what to do next, nor any way to chart your progress. Sure, some goals are being achieved by trial and error -- but many aren't -- and more are taking far longer to achieve than they should.

TQ Factor 5A BENEFIT: You have more power...

You have realistic goals, because you have real plans. You accumulate performance positives like "Well-Planned, Well-Prepared and Informed" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 5A: Less Power...

Many of your most cherished goals are begging for better results. Negatives like "Haphazard, Shortsighted and Unprepared" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

We are in a brutally competitive industry and if we don't learn to sell and compete smarter, it is the difference between us getting the business or getting out of business. This gave us the edge we were looking for.
