Become Self-Governed — Eliminate Uncertain!

Improve TQ Mission Factor 2B...

"I keep a personal mission statement that promises how I will "live what I value" as my code of conduct for everything I do."

In the trials and chaos of modern life, you need a set of standards to help guide you through the good times and the bad. The highest and most beneficial set of rules is the one you establish for the preferred way that you want to live. Once you have a list of your most important values, commit to a personal mission statement that declares how you will live what you value. The most basic mission statement is simply this: "I will live a life of... (insert your list of values here)... every day of my life."

Remember, MISSION is the second color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because until you know what's most important, you're spending the only life you have on things that simply don't matter.

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

TQ Factor 2B "Thin Line"...

Self-Governed vs. Uncertain is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 2B 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
 
Self-Governed
Decisive
Idealistic
Clear
Conscientious
Purposeful
    Uncertain
Undetermined
Uncommitted
Ambiguous
Aimless
Indecisive
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 Self-Governed... and a little LESS Uncertain?

TQ Factor 2B CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests that whenever you are in doubt, you can recite a personal pledge for how you will live your values. Your mission statement is your guiding light that keeps you on the path to your dreams. Not only have you identified what's most important to you, you've also taken the next step. You've promised to focus your life on those things that bring the greatest satisfaction. By determining exactly what you want and who you will be, you have the unique advantage of always knowing what's right for you -- even when decisions are difficult.

TQ Factor 2B COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you're not exactly sure what you stand for. As a result, you are often undecided and easily stressed when trying to make decisions about your future. You're never 100% sure what you can count on -- and that includes yourself. Your personal character is never in question, but you are frequently confused about what is the right thing to do. Prioritizing where you should invest your time and resources is not easy. With no clear code of conduct, you may disregard your true values for easier, more immediate rewards.

TQ Factor 2B BENEFIT: You have more power...

You clearly understand which choices support you and your values -- and which do not. You accumulate performance positives like "Self-Governed, Decisive and Idealistic" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 2B: Less Power...

You have no clear guidance for the individual choices you make every day. Negatives like "Uncertain, Undetermined and Uncommitted" 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.
