Become Efficient — Eliminate Inefficient!

Improve TQ Organize Factor 8E...

"I save steps by batching similar tasks that can be done at the same time."

The multitude of life's tasks are easier to complete when you stop, plan ahead and batch similar activities together. You eliminate repetition and minimize effort when you group similar tasks to be done at the same time. Write down the routine tasks you perform every day -- the ones you do once a week, and those you complete once a month. Now group similar activities into their own specific time periods and complete them all at once -- instead of one at a time.

Remember, ORGANIZE is the eighth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because after leveraging your results through others, automating your tasks is the most productive thing you can do.

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

"It is those who have this imperative demand for the best in their natures, and who will accept nothing short of it, that holds the banners of progress, that set the standards, the ideals, for others." ~ Orison Swett Marden

TQ Factor 8E "Thin Line"...

Efficient vs. Inefficient is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 8E 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
 
Efficient
Practical
Organized
Logical
Well-Planned
    Inefficient
Impractical
Repetitive
Scattered
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 Efficient... and a little LESS Inefficient?

TQ Factor 8E CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests that your recurrent tasks are systematically completed in batches. Instead of being tempted to do whatever appears next, you ignore this impulse by planning ahead and grouping similar activities together. This may be as simple as paying your bills once a month, putting off a trip to the north end of town until you have more errands to run, or buying all office supplies at the same time. This skill helps you get more done at one time than if you did each individual task separately.

TQ Factor 8E COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who takes on each task as it presents itself. When failing to group tasks together, your days consist of backtracking and duplication of effort. You make six trips to the same store in two days, you go back and forth to the fax or copy machine all day long -- then have the audacity to complain that there are never enough hours in the day! This waste of time increases your stress level, and decreases the amount of time available for more productive activities.

TQ Factor 8E BENEFIT: You have more power...

You save time by doing five things at one time, instead of one thing at five different times. You accumulate performance positives like "Efficient, Practical and Organized" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 8E: Less Power...

You waste time whenever you do one thing five times instead of five things at one time. Negatives like "Inefficient, Impractical and Repetitive" 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.
