Become Self-Directed — Eliminate Directionless!

Improve TQ Set Goals Factor 4B...

"I maintain at least one clearly defined goal for every major interest and role in my life."

Creating an ideal life, where all of your roles are completely fulfilled, starts with setting clear goals. If you never define what you expect, you will only get what life gives you -- and that may be a whole lot less than what you want. Why leave things to chance? Every major interest and role in your life deserves its own series of goals. Clearly defined goals for each of your roles provides a rewarding direction -- and an ever-present purpose for each area of your life.

Remember, SET GOALS is the fourth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because you can't make the leap from here to your vision, all in one jump.

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

"When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life." ~ Greg Anderson

TQ Factor 4B "Thin Line"...

Self-Directed vs. Directionless is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 4B 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-Directed
Fulfilled
Dedicated
Well-Rounded
Purposeful
Balanced
    Directionless
Aimless
Unfulfilled
Uninspired
Imbalanced
Unmindful
 

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-Directed... and a little LESS Directionless?

TQ Factor 4B CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are someone whose entire life has meaning because you set and achieve rewarding goals for each of your roles. This applies to everything you do -- your career, family, hobbies, finances and all other major interests. These prime goals give guidance and purpose for all your actions. Focused on specific and rewarding targets, you are motivated to make the most of every minute. This is true whether you're drafting a proposal at work or doing volunteer work on weekends.

TQ Factor 4B COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests there are areas of your life that are undervalued and underutilized. You may have specific goals for your career but other roles run a distant second when it comes to identifying specifics. Although you want each role to be as successful as possible, without an ideal outcome clearly in mind, you have no guidance for how to proceed or succeed. Without specific goals for each of your roles -- sooner or later -- those roles will suffer from neglect, or disappear altogether.

TQ Factor 4B BENEFIT: You have more power...

You have a desirable goal and a confirmed purpose for each of your roles. You accumulate performance positives like "Self-Directed, Fulfilled and Dedicated" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 4B: Less Power...

Without a goal, there are roles in your life that have no purpose or direction. Negatives like "Directionless, Aimless and Unfulfilled" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Worth 1000 Times the price paid..."

Been there... done that... and I'm not easily impressed. I've purchased thousands of dollars of books, seminars, video tapes, and an assortment of training aids that would fill a garage. Never have I been so impressed before. Simple, straight-forward and very structured. This is the LAST program I will ever need to take! I wish it would have been my FIRST...
