Become Preemptive — Eliminate Diverted!

Improve TQ Prioritize Factor 6I...

"I handle urgencies as required without losing focus on my preplanned priorities."

Urgencies are a fact of life. There will always be emergencies that demand your attention. The key is to handle them without getting pulled off course from your preplanned priorities. You are never the most productive when you are continuously enmeshed in low value, time consuming urgencies. Time spent improving your systems -- and planning ahead to prevent low-grade urgencies -- is a wiser investment than time spent administering emergency relief.

Remember, PRIORITIZE is the sixth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because even though you want to complete every step of every plan, you can't complete them all at the same time.

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

TQ Factor 6I "Thin Line"...

Preemptive vs. Diverted is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 6I 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
 
Preemptive
Responsive
Committed
Focused
Flexible
Adaptable
    Diverted
Reactive
Stressed
Distracted
Disrupted
 

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 Preemptive... and a little LESS Diverted?

TQ Factor 6I CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you can take what life throws at you, and still stay focused on what you want to accomplish. With a list of daily priorities firmly in place, you take care of urgencies quickly, and immediately get back on track. You respond to demands and interruptions without losing touch with your plans and priorities. Understanding that urgencies disrupt plans, you are constantly looking ahead. You do whatever you can to make sure all your bases are covered, so you won't be pulled away by an emergency at the last minute.

TQ Factor 6I COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you allow your urgencies to be more important than your priorities. You find it hard to get back to your original priorities whenever an urgency interrupts you. You have the mistaken belief that just because something is demanding, it's more important, and you don't stop to consider if the urgency actually deserves your attention. It may not even occur to you to try to prevent these recurring demands from interrupting you in the future.

TQ Factor 6I BENEFIT: You have more power...

FAIL to do TQ Factor 6I: Less Power...

You are a slave to time wasting, priority busting, energy depleting urgencies. Negatives like "Diverted, Reactive and Stressed" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
