What Is TQ?


"Action is the true measure of intelligence."~ Napoleon Hill

TQ is the intelligence behind success.

Your Time Quotient (TQ) is a Gold Standard measurement of the actions you take to produce the Results you get over Time.

TQ measures how smart you ACT, not how smart you ARE.

More Results In Less Time: The Key To Lasting Success.

TQ doesn't measure your cognitive intelligence (IQ,) or your emotional intelligence (EQ.) For purposes of this discussion, assume your IQ and EQ are good enough — because they are.

No question, if you're reading this page, you're smart enough to achieve anything you want in life.

Because TQ is based on 100 simple, easily repeatable actions, it is the only form of intelligence you can actually improve over time.

Why TQ matters.

Given your intellectual and emotional makeup (whatever it is), you are still responsible for creating the life you want. This means producing Results.

The Results you produce over your lifetime is how your success will ultimately be measured — not by any score.

Your TQ is what causes success over Time.

Success is not measured by good intentions—or how much effort you expend — or how badly you want it. Instead, success is entirely dependent upon the Results you actually get in the Time you have.

The simplicity of our formula says it all. In order to become the success you desire—simply produce better Results, and do it in less Time.

Work the formula. You either get the Results you expect — or you don't.

You either produce them in the Time expected — or you don't.

    So, how can you improve your TQ?

    Actually, the process is quite simple:

    1. Systematically identify what's holding you back...
    2. Eliminate it.
    Because it is quite difficult for us to actually see what's impacting our TQ, we developed a "Gold Standard" measurement of personal performance. By rating yourself against this standard, you can cut through the blur and identify your exact strengths — and weaknesses.

    "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.
