Become Methodical — Eliminate Inconsistent!

Improve TQ Make Plans Factor 5F...

"I plan every day from my Master List, to my To-Do List, to my Schedule... to done."

Maximum personal productivity is entirely dependent upon how quickly you can go from a concept to a completion. To be as productive as possible, you must have an organized system for keeping track of all data, dates, numbers, people, goals, plans and to-do's. You need a single system that helps plan this entire flow of detail -- from idea to implementation to completion in the least amount of time -- without losing anything through the cracks -- or driving you crazy in the process.

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.

"Determine what specific goal you want to achieve. Then dedicate yourself to its attainment with unswerving singleness of purpose, the trenchant zeal of a crusader." ~ Paul J. Meyer

TQ Factor 5F "Thin Line"...

Methodical vs. Inconsistent is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 5F 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
 
Methodical
Competent
Systematic
Focused
Organized
Prepared
Detailed
    Inconsistent
Chaotic
Scattered
Unfocused
Disorganized
Reactive
Impetuous
 

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 Methodical... and a little LESS Inconsistent?

TQ Factor 5F CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you're highly organized and very productive. You're a master at checking off tasks, one-by-one, and never lose track of important details. You have instant access to all the dates and details in your immediate future, and a single list that contains all the things you want to get done. Your calendar provides a clear view of short and long-term goals. Each morning begins with a careful review and a systematic selection of the items you will complete that day. Each day ends with the satisfaction that a multitude of tasks have been successfully completed and major progress has been made overall.

TQ Factor 5F COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests there's "no method to your madness." Your list of things to do is often chaotic, disorganized and rarely complete. Notes and reminders tend to be scattered everywhere, and you have to check for appointments in two or three different places. With no comprehensive process in place, you lack both the far-sighted vision of what you want to get done, and the near-sighted view of what needs to be done now. Each day is somewhere between busy and frantic -- and you wonder if you're really making any progress at all.

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

You have a simple, yet thorough, system for planning all your projects and tasks. You accumulate performance positives like "Methodical, Competent and Systematic" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

Things get lost, misplaced, delayed and forgotten -- most of the time. Negatives like "Inconsistent, Chaotic and Scattered" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
