Become Diligent — Eliminate Lackadaisical!

Improve TQ Set Goals Factor 4J...

"I take an action step toward the attainment of at least one goal every day."

A goal is something beyond where you are. If you want to get from here to your goal, you must take the steps required to get there. Goals don't just automatically "happen." Obvious? You bet! But if this is obvious, why do so many people set goals then never achieve them? Goals don't happen on their own. If you want the goal, you have to do the work. This means taking the steps necessary to get there, day-by-day.

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 4J "Thin Line"...

Diligent vs. Lackadaisical is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 4J 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
 
Diligent
Persistent
Gratified
Vigilant
Industrious
    Lackadaisical
Uncommitted
Unrewarded
Neglectful
Stagnant
Dissatisfied
 

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 Diligent... and a little LESS Lackadaisical?

TQ Factor 4J CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests your commitment to your goals shows up in your actions -- every single day. You have a sense of satisfaction and pride at the end of the day, because you know that you've made progress -- however large or small -- on the things that mean the most to you. By taking a daily step toward your most heart-felt goals -- regardless of the other demands on your time -- you are continually rewarded knowing that your life is moving in the right direction. Daily accomplishments increase your momentum as you check off completed objectives -- one-by-one.

TQ Factor 4J COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who can let weeks go by without making any real progress on your goals. There are too many days when your goals are sacrificed to other demands that seem more important, or more urgent. This makes it impossible to accurately predict when you will accomplish your goals -- because you have no idea how much time you'll have available to dedicate to them. You become discouraged each time a deadline comes and goes. With no real progress in sight, your goals become less believable as the days, weeks and months roll by.

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

"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.
