Become Dedicated — Eliminate Noncommittal!

Improve TQ Make Plans Factor 5E...

"I integrate the steps of my plans into my schedule every day."

The steps in your plan never schedule themselves. They don't automatically show up as the next thing to do. If you want to move your plans ahead, write each action step as an appointment in your calendar -- and dedicate an appropriate amount of time to get it done. If you don't reserve time for step-by-step planning in advance, everything else in your life will fill up the available time slots -- and your plans will never get completed.

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.

"It's enough for you to do it once for a few men to remember you. But if you do it year after year, then many people remember you and they tell it to their children, and their children and grandchildren remember and, if it concerns books, they can read them. And if it's good enough, it will last as long as there are human beings." ~ Ernest Hemingway

TQ Factor 5E "Thin Line"...

Dedicated vs. Noncommittal is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 5E 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
 
Dedicated
Proactive
Self-Determined
Diligent
Organized
Committed
    Noncommittal
Reactive
Delayed
Passive
Delusional
Disorganized
 

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 Dedicated... and a little LESS Noncommittal?

TQ Factor 5E CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you're serious about completing your plans and committed to achieving your goals. You know that you will never magically find the time if you don't carve it out. Therefore, you immediately schedule your plans directly into your calendar -- as an integral part of your basic planning process. By setting an appointment for each step, you guarantee that plans get all the time they deserve. You get started on time and make diligent progress on every plan created. You gain confidence from knowing you can achieve any goal -- by properly scheduling it into your day, week, month, year and 10 year time lines.

TQ Factor 5E COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who struggles to find the time to actually work your plans. While your plans may look beautiful on paper -- fully detailed and in precise chronological order -- they are nothing more than good intentions when you fail to give them the time required to be completed. You may delude yourself into believing that you will get to them sometime soon. However, without designating a specific time, each step has to compete with all other deadlines. This means your plans take longer than expected -- and force you to push back the deadlines for achieving your goals.

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

Every plan created is given specific times for it's step-by-step completion. You accumulate performance positives like "Dedicated, Proactive and Self-Determined" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

Each time you fail to schedule a step, your plans fall further behind. Negatives like "Noncommittal, Reactive and Delayed" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
