Become Explicit — Eliminate Vague!

Improve TQ Set Goals Factor 4E...

"I write down all my goals in specific, measurable detail with declared target dates."

Writing down exactly what you want, and by when, is the first step to success. If you won't commit to writing them down, you'll never do what it takes to reach your goals. Writing your goals in exquisite detail helps define them in your mind -- and provides the exact specifications for what you want to accomplish. The more desirable qualities you add to the goal, the greater will be your satisfaction when you attain it. Be sure to write SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Tangible -- and don't forget a target date. (Because the difference between a dream and a goal is a date!)

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.

TQ Factor 4E "Thin Line"...

Explicit vs. Vague is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 4E 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
 
Explicit
Focused
Practical
Precise
Detailed
Careful
    Vague
Uncertain
Uncommitted
Impractical
Ambiguous
Undisciplined
 

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 Explicit... and a little LESS Vague?

TQ Factor 4E CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you can define exactly what you want, and know when to expect it. This is evidenced by the fact that you continuously write down your goals and enter specific deadlines into your calendar. By identifying what you want -- in precise, written detail -- you're halfway to completing the plans needed to achieve them. This combination of written goals and written plans dramatically increases your probability of success.

TQ Factor 4E COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you need to take more time to better define your goals -- and pencil them into your calendar. Lacking the commitment to be more precise, your goals are really nothing more than ambiguous possibilities. With no specific targets in sight, it's impossible to determine what you need to do next. When you fail to commit to a deadline in your calendar, some goals inevitably get cast aside for other things. And given that life in general -- and everyone you work with in particular -- always has some kind of time-critical deadlines, your "non-urgent," "non-defined" goals tend to get pushed off your schedule forever.

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

You have clear, specific targets to work towards with rock-solid milestones guiding the way. You accumulate performance positives like "Explicit, Focused and Practical" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

There is no way you can achieve your goals if they are not clear. Negatives like "Vague, Uncertain and Uncommitted" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
