The connection between Efficiency, Effectiveness and Success...

"Efficiency is doing better what is already being done. Effectiveness is deciding what to do better." ~ Peter F. Drucker

Last week we focused on the process of success, and discussed the relationship between your Expectations and your ability to perform up to Expectations.

Want greater success?

Work the formula: Expect More ~ Execute Better.

This week we are going to discuss a couple of other "E" words: Efficiency and Effectiveness.

Interestingly, American Heritage defines both words as somewhat interchangeable:

The power or capacity to produce a desired result; Prepared for use or action.

As you may remember from last week's discussion, American Heritage defines Success as:

The achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted; Achieving the Results expected.

Do you see the immediate connection between Efficiency, Effectiveness and Success?

TQ Efficiency and Effectiveness is about POWER.

The POWER or capacity to produce a desired RESULT... what we call The Power of TQ!

This week, find a way to increase your personal POWER by becoming a bit more EFFICIENT and EFFECTIVE. Wouldn't achieving your Top 3 Goals be a great deal EASIER if you were?

Wouldn't it be possible to move your 3 biggest 2016 goals from December 31st, to say, September 21st if you were better ORGANIZED?

My 3 Biggest Goals:

1) ____________________________
2) ____________________________
3) ____________________________


Time Horizon: Fall 2016

TQ What will you DO to become more Efficient, Effective and Successful?

How about becoming better ORGANIZED?

Yes, right NOW... not Someday when you get "round to it"!

Consider DOING TQ Factor 8A more frequently. Why?

Because every activity contains a series of steps that must be completed correctly to be successful.

Systemize your success. Identify the critical steps required to complete your most productive and rewarding activities.

Then, create a "well-oiled machine" to automatically crank out results for you.

Systemize those steps through technology, checklists, delegation or by enrolling additional team members—and you will achieve the results you expect—far more often.

Automate this Factor and you'll double, triple or even quadruple your productivity, efficiency and effectiveness.

Put simply, you will achieve your GOALS SOONER, rather than LATER.

The following Ideas for Action from our Organize Personal Workshop represent some of the best thinking on the planet about getting SPECIFIC about your goals. Each is designed to inspire and motivate you to actually do TQ Factor 8A a great deal more frequently.

Keep in mind, however, that they will remain ideas until you put them into action.

"Don't tell me how hard you work. Tell me how much you get done." ~ James Ling

TQ Factor 8A CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment to this Factor of your performance suggests your systems have made you a highly productive "results generator."

You are more productive than most, simply because you have invested the time and resources necessary to build systems to optimize your high-payoff activities.

Your secret is to create systems that utilize the best tools and technology—systems that bring out the best in you—and everyone on your team.

TQ Factor 8A COST to your success...

A lack of commitment to this area of your performance suggests you've never quite figured out how to systemize success and put it on autopilot.

If questioned, you could probably list the activities that produce your greatest rewards.

But lacking the systems to properly support you, you don't get to do them as often—or as well—as you'd like.

Consequently, you work hard to overcome your inherent lack of "system smarts," and erroneously confuse personal effort with optimum results.

TQ Factor BENEFIT...

What happens when you consistently do Factor 8A?

You have more power.

You hit more home runs, because you get to bat more often. You accumulate performance positives like "Systematic, Streamlined and Automated"—immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you FAIL to consistently do Factor 8A? You have less power.

You hardly ever score, because you rarely get up to the plate. Negatives like "Chaotic, Struggling and Hindered" start to take their toll on your performance—quickly moving you away from the success you want.

TQ The Bottom Line...

It is one thing to TALK about being Efficient and Effective.

It is quite another to actually BE Efficient and Effective.

If you haven't already, right now is the perfect time to take a baseline assessment of your EXPECTATIONS and your POWER to achieve them.

I urge you to take the full 100 question TQ Test to baseline where you are now... and what you will need to do differently to achieve your goals this year. -- E.R. Haas, CEO

I get the job done!
My "Git R Done" attitude is over the top...

Way over the top!

er
If I'm being honest, I'd say ZERO. Though I think the Right Way is subjective, I don't seem to do things consistently.
Actually, the Right Way of doing things is rarely subjective, it is almost always procedural. Entire teams of engineers can find a set of procedures that work better than other procedures... but the subjective thing is doing things for the Right Reason. That, engineers have "issues" with!

If you do the wrong things, even for the Right Reasons, you will not find the success you desire.

If you do the wrong things, in the wrong way (i.e. badly) you will find it even more difficult to achieve a successful outcome.

You simply have to find the Right Things to be doing... for you, not somebody else... and do them in the best way possible (Right Way) and stay focused on both Time and Reason.

Discover your 4 R's, and you will have a huge edge over someone who continues with poor results -- delivered late!

er
Excellent comment! There is a 'right way' of doing things. When we do the right things the right way we get results. When one discovers the right system or process for doing things then those things can be duplicated over and over again for the same results or better.
Always...some moments I can be caught on auto pilot
It's clarity of specificity  all motivated by Values (the Right) that produces the Right Outcome, or as close as we can get it.

It is Right to have High Expectations? Yes!

It is Right to Perform Brilliantly? Yes!

So, it must be Right to Succeed. Yes! In fact, it's All Right for us to Succeed.
Suppose you are in a company, where you do repetitive work, not necessarily your innovative way of doing things are wanted or appreciated, on the contrary you have a tremendous appetite for learning new things in life and doing things differently, then how can your TQ help?
Lona, what a great question! (And look at the time you posted your comment  2:22 AM. You must be really looking.)

This is such a fundamental question that so many people are feeling and thinking, but may not ask out loud or have the courage to go and find answers. It is so easy to get lost and forgotten in hopelessness..but not YOU! Which is fantastic, because it is the way we get answers. We look so we can find, we ask so we can get answers.

Your question is covered fully in the TQ eBook Success on Purpose. In a nutshell, a portion of the book talks about how our Natural Mission is created  from our Values (what we truly believe and stand for), our Visions (how we want to really live our life), the Roles (who we must become to live the life in those Visions) which all triangulate into our Natural Mission (what we must do each day to live the only life we have in the way we can best live it).

What this does is helps us to eliminate all the things in our lives that really do not matter to us but somehow we got caught up in. Before TQ it is like being brought a big juicy steak but it has on it all this fat. After learning and using TQ it's like you have the big juicy steak without all the useless fat, but now you have room on your plate for vegetables of all kinds, and all the other goodies that make a great steak dinner fabulous!

But where do you begin? As ER would put it, right now you are an unconscious incompetent. In other words you're not quite sure how you got here, why you stay here and it is rather murky as to how to get out of here and besides that, where would you go and how would you get there?

By taking the two TQ tests you immediately move into conscious incompetence, which is to say you are aware that you were pretty much clueless about your situation before, but now you are getting clued in. AND, now you are on your way to conscious competence, being able to deliberately improve yourself and your life through high TQ performance.

So, first you must become aware  High TQ Awareness, which begins with the two TQ tests, then you must learn how to set High Expectations and Execute Brilliantly. This is High TQ Performance. And it is taught to you through the TQ system.

You will learn that your daily performance can be broken down into 10 areas, or 10 colors. Each color, which is measured in your TQ tests, has in it positives and negatives. As you replace the negatives with positives each color burns brighter and your performance becomes more powerful.

This may sound a little confusing, but really ER and Kent have made the system so simple by starting with what is called the Bookmark, a child can do it successfully. It is why TQ has such enthusiastic clients and supporters.

As you implement this process of choosing positives over negatives you become a conscious competent. Now, you are really on your way  on your way out of the place you work where they do not value you, with a clear Vision of where you want to be, live and enjoy your life, with goals and plans in hand and the power to get you there!

That is what TQ can do for you when you do what TQ has for you to do. TQ is a very common sense approach to uncommon success. You must do the work, but now it is clear what that work you must do is.

The very best to you, Lona! You've got choices before you from which to make a great adventure worth living.
I couldn't have said it better!

Thanks
I have learned that to be effective, I must know exactly what I want. In order to capture that desire and make it a reality, each color of my prism needs to be as intense as possible. I personally am much more effecient than years past, but, still need a lot of work.
Have to say I'm right there with you, Samuel. I've been taking these last few days to remember what it is I really want for not only me but my family. When your a stay at home mom you lose site of what you really want in life. You just let life live you, sort of speak. Thanks to Miakel, my coach and TQ I've found site of my dream's and desires again and more driven now then I ever have been.
effective
Yes, I work for myself, someone else signs my paycheck!
absolutely. I find myself doing things for free when I should be charging just because I love what I am doing. I guess I need to keep working on that.
EFFICIENT
While you're waiting, life happens anyway. Then suddenly, the opportunity you thought you were waiting for is gone because you didn't recognize it when it arrived. "When my ship comes in, I'll probably be at the airport"
YES! I totally agree with his statement - waiting is a HUGE trap. It's a trap to keep you complacent, a trap to keep you stagnant, a trap that has the potential to destroy you if you are not careful.

Keep believing that it is not too late - changing will start to make things better. And yes, you are strong enough to change. BELIEVE IT!!

(Yes, I am talking at myself - smile....)
Well, yes; waiting only begets more waiting and putting off what needs and can be done today! It becomes easier and easier to find excuses for not putting forth the effort to get done what needs to be done-the preliminaries-for reaching goals. You look back and what have you accomplished? A lifetime of waiting and procrastination!
Yes Yes Yes.I am so that person,always afraid that it won't be right if I just plunge ahead even if I know I can do it I think I have to have someone's ok first.
Procrastination, self doubt. lots to overcome but slowly I am doing it.
Belief in yourself is the first step Vina. Im afraid of failure also but overcoming that fear everyday. I know that I don't have to overcome those fears for only myself but also my family. And I pat myself on the back for everyday I wake up and everyday I find that positive outlook for that day.
Yes
I do procrastinate. Some days I have a hundred things to do that needs to get done and only twenty four hours in a day. I have to make the decision which activity is the most important to be done and do it, then go on to the next until everything isd done. I also work, have church and bible study and household chores to do. There is also an activity called fun and a person no matter how busy they are needs to take time out for fun or the hard core procrastination begins with self pity on why do I have to do all this and such?
What do you think orf those comments?

Opportunities are continuous such as taking the time to fill in this comments box with a response. The crux of feeling the loss of missed opportunities is in poor prioritizing and indifferent dicipline. We can just about do everything if we get the big important things taken care of first off.
I've lost count. :(
yes but i also feel that our reason's can lead to our result's that is if our reason is the drive we have to get results
I pick something scary and do it everyday. To be in fear, suggests judgement.
Sure, I suffer some fear of the unknown as does nearly everyone, but not near as much as a fear of the known. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. I've been burned, repeatedly, and am afraid of putting my hand back into the fire. It took some effort to overcome the childhood memories, but that done, it's the childish adults I've encountered that keep me from action. Unethical acts are all too common and I can't abide them. So how do I work with those who don't care or the snobbish, backstabbers and outright liars who claim one thing and perform otherwise? Perhaps I'm more paranoid than I need to be, but repeated problems over which I have no control have stiffled my forward momentum, particularly in synergy. How does one get around distrust? How can I find the good guys and quit wasting precious time with dishonest people? I know I can't do it alone. Or is that the game? Some will succeed, perhaps sooner or easier with this technology, while others just won't, but the show must go on. Keep on keepin' on. My dad, at 76, has spent over 35 years trying to reach his goal and will keep trying till he dies. That's life. Do it or die trying, what else is there to live for. Right?
There is no dealing with bad people. I heard an analogy. Would you like a cake made with just a little bit of feces in the mix? No, it makes the whole thing bad! Truth be told, many people have lost their jobs even their lives to integrity. I believe that what goes around comes around. I am in your position myself. I just can't be anything but who I am and that's an honest, good person. Keep trying just like your dad. God bless you. Live for what you'd die for. I can't answer where to find the good guys, but they are out there. You just have to be very cautious, always keep some boundaries.
Possibly but all of the above is definitely a yes.
yes and yes and yes!!! :) he he! I thought i overcame my fear of success then it switched to failure and they just tag backand forth! I'm not afaid to fail but i don't know what will happen if i 100% succeed - and it is most likly why i am procrastinating on life!
if knowing is half the battle
why am i still battling and what do you for that fear anyway!
I am not sure of that. I have done a lot of things which gave me success, but I have difficulty to maintain my focus, I am always further, ahaid of satisfaction. One thing which made me proscrastinate is my difficulty to express my desire and my difficulty to accept my conditions (limits). I do not want to disappoint peoples, I want to much please them and after, I have difficulty to reajust my limits, then, I proscrastinate...
Neither, I am procrastinating out of a fear of rejection.
YES THAT IS WHY, I feel intimidated, not capable of responding to those who question me, many times I don't agree with something said and yet I say "OK" and I hate this. I AM FRUSTRATED with this. I have issues communicating my thoughts....
It's so hard to stand against the crowd. What happens if you do? Sometimes people actually feel that same way you do and are afraid to express it like yourself. Sometimes it may be that you don't want to appear superior. Sometimes it is not worth the "fight". But sometimes it can open up a wonderful dialog. Weigh your options and then SPEAK UP when it is important! Best wishes, Tammie
PS. I need to follow my own advise.
I am going out of the Country for 2 weeks and what if I started my Real Estate farm campain and people wanted to talk to me or meet with me and I won't be here? That's only one excuse.
My fear is more or less the fear of Failure.
both
YES, I DO ASK THE QUESTION WHY...OR WHY NOT.
Neither. I'm not afraid of 'success.' However I think that success is not so easily defined. When I look around me and see the successful destroying our world I must question exactly the definition of success handed out by many who don't seem to think about the repurcussions of success.
You bet. Success is definitely remaining true to your values (and I would hope they are good values) I totally agree with your commentary. I am not a success in a career, but I think I have been successful in keeping with my values. The world needs to change the definition of success. Success in Africa could be a mother doing all she can trying to feed her child, even though she might not be able to keep that child alive. I believe success is giving 100% and doing your very best.
For me, it is always "why not ?" so that makes this a fun question to answer (as opposed to the procrastination questions, which I couldn't answer as positively - proven by the fact that I am answereing this question instead of getting on with the work at hand )
Some people may get tired of my eternal optimism that there is a better way, a better answer (why not ?). But if there isn't a better way or we are not looking for it, then why bother ? It keeps things interesting and worth doing. So, speaking of doing, I better do some of it instead of procrastinating
I dunno !! damn ! I just dunno - I have hit 62 years and am lost lost lost what the hey ?)(*&^% maybe I just don't care anymore - damn ! maybe the age is getting to me - BUT the ole fight is not there anymore
Help help help send me a message to rhodes350@comcast.net thanks a lot
love John
well- now what ?? soooooooooooooo I just gotta deal with some things and plan to - when when when. that is the salient question - hell-I just wanna be ! just wanna be !!!!!!!!!!1 what do ya do with 62 years experience ??? what? a lotta experience and NO motivation none none none
damn send me a note to:
rhodes350@comcast.net = pleeezzzzze
John,
Pass on your wisdom and keep plugging. You have so much to offer. You have done things I haven't. What is keeping you unmotivated?
My first reaction is to as WHY NOT.
The first day you posted for us to list the three top reason of procrastination I thought "thats an easy question to answer, that would be fear, fear, and fear. Not sure why that was my first thought but that single word seems to drive my do's and don'ts. I try not to over analyze what it is I am afraid of, just work at not being frozen in it.
Im married for 40 years I can say its been good for long time but now because were both retired were both in the house eventhough were both busy doing things in the house out side the house its seems when we see each other were looking for something to fight about were in 60s is this normal I know its to far from what the topic is but please help me I just cant comprehend now its seems were both so distance each other for nothing.Please help me.
I just procrastinated reading this TQ. What an irony. Procrastination is a habit. It's an irrational response to a perceived outcome that hasn't happened. I procrastinate because I'm stuck. I might succeed, or I might fail. I do believe fear of success is a major contributor. I have to get over myself and try. I'm finally onto something that could lead to major success and I have to fight my own fears that show up as procrastination.
I realize I have fear of success and tend to down play myself so I don't tend to set many goals
Yes.
Some of the procrastinating is gone from my life. I have a thyroid problem and I run on low some days. I'm going to seek another doctor to get a second opinion on it. When I get my pay check on Friday I'll consider getting the cd on procrastination.
thanks

Sometimes I'm frightful of the future. But I try to tell myself that I won't know what will happen, good or bad, if I don't try. So sometimes I force myself to take a risk. Doing it this way my confidence has grown slowly but surely.

JJG
I'm afraid of success because it requires so much work. I struggle with being able to comply with the responsibilities of success. Failure is much easier to achieve, its just that the results are unwanted.

JJG
The last six months have been the best of the 32 I've been working. I'm meeting the challenges that come my way with a zest and vigor I have never known. I often wonder where I'd be if I had discovered the secrets to success 30 years ago.

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
Look back on the last 6 months of your career. Are you both, Efficient and Effective?


I had been growing increasingly efficient and effective, but by taking shortcuts that i thought were efficient, i ended up reducing my effectiveness. I think it's important to have highly evolved discernment so that you don't lose the balance between the two.
I feel I'm very efficient and effective. I need no supervision at my job. I'm there alone from 4am to 7am. I'm a self starter and complete my tasks in an orderly fashion. I take pride in my work and display a tasty and good looking product.
No, I would say I have been just the opposite. Not pleased with what I am getting accomplished right now. Needing to really update my bookmark and start following it
no, I can't honestly say I have been efficient and effective in all the areas I could be. It's my intention to, however,
04/21/08 - No, honestly I have not been efficient and effective. It is difficult when you have a supervisor or manager who skips over you and takes new employees under her wing to help them move up. It is also difficult to maintain a positive outlook. While I continue to give it my all, it is not appreciated only ignored. Many minor issues with this supervisor occur that affects my desire to give it my all. This is definitely an uphill battle.
If only things were that simple
About 50% of the time must stay committed to improving this.
On a scale of 1-10, I am 70% Efficient & 50% Effective

Yes mostly it will be 2-3 R's

Between TQ and the new web-support person I hired I am feeling absolutely unstoppable. For the first time since I've started my business, I can actually SEE the potential, whereas before it was just an empty goal-statement. Because ER and Kent force us to look further into the future (where I have never bothered looking or planning before)I can now connect the actions I take today to the results I will get tomorrow...such a simple concept but so evasive!

Listening the the TQ CDs everyday, both in my car and in the house when I can helps, but there is nothing like the live coaching calls.
So my answer to today's 4 R question is, I will intend on always doing the right things the right way at the right time and for the right reasons.
Today I feel like I am doing well
I have just begun a new quest. For the past 5-years ive been earning $85K/yr for really working part time in my home office. I had to travel once in a while but for the most part, nothing excessive.
Now, I am changing my career into real-estate investing in Canda (still hot properties here with well above average returns) and have to work full time as it were. I want this as I've become very work lazy and I hate it muchly.
There is much to do and I've jumped into something that is totally different than what i've been doing and really am looking forward to the challange, I just need to re-focus and move forward. The problem seems, that I've lost some of my mojo
hi Steve, I know what you mean about getting "work lazy," me too. I'm really curious about what kind of job or work you did that made such a nice amount working only part-time and how come you gave it up. Also, can't real estate investing be just part-time (not withstanding the inital set-up)? I work with lots of investors and they seem to have tons of free time. And, I am confident TQ will help you get your mojo back!
Take care,
Tamara
I know several of the whys of my life but as the weeks go by they are often overrode by the urgent or next crisis. I know that God put me here to use my gifts and passions for His purpose.
The BIG WHY in my life is for the future generations of Thomas'. I truly believe that GOD has put me here on earth to prepare the way for my family. So recognizing that I have to put some things in place right now is of great importance. My children will know that their father was a man on a mission to make their way a little less hectic. I want to make sure that I put every effort towards their success. So my BIG WHY is not for me but for my future.

Cedric A. Thomas
preparation for tasks need to be shorted or fine tuned
More effective, i'm too scattered to be efficient. I need to set better blocks of time to get things done.
Isn't it awful how you plan time for a task and it ALWAYS takes twice as long as you think because you have to do other tasks to start the one you are trying to do. I am also very scattered but that doesn't make me inefficient, it just takes longer. I do better with routine. It also helps to write things down, the extra step of kenisis (movement) helps you remember. People think i'm crazy sometimes but I talk myself through a task step by step. I know it is frustrating but it can get better. Break down each task step by step no matter how small. Good luck.
Maybe neither word would describe me, but if I pick one, it'd be effective. I am working, with the support of the TQ system on developing efficiency and as a natural result, my effectiveness will increase too.
Neither at this point in my life... I'm in a huge transition and feel that my efficiency and effectiveness has flown out the window...
Yes, I find my work totaly absorbing. When I get there the day is over. There is no time to do anything but be absorbed in my work and I love it.
Yes Smarter Choices can make huge difference

Chauhan
Do you find your work completely absorbing?

When it comes to my developing business venture, certainly. It always excites me to the point where i can work on it for hours at a time. when it comes to the lab and everyday routine at the workplace, sometimes it's absorbing, but only because it's necessary. I work in a blood bank and i need to focus all of my attention on what i'm doing because patients' lives depend on it. i can't say that this focus is based on enjoyment , but i do get a sense of satisfaction at the end of the day for doing something worthwhile.
I know my work is completely absorbing because the time goes by so fast I hardly realize I've been at it for 12 hours. And when I am working I am never sure if I am at work or at play. It is all about having the mission clearly focused in my head and in my heart. The rest of it is easy.
When my reasons are bigger than I am, I get the results I want. When my reasons are small, my results aren't quite as good.
I can't say that either is true. Although I thought at the time I was being both. Instead I allowed myself to be mislead. My own fault. I should have been smarter.
I am quite efficient and effective, but I can be more efficient and effective with more focus on increasing these traits.
Over all I make every effort to the best of my ability to do the right thing the right way at the right time for the right reasons, keeping in mind that we are human beings and we are not perfect and with those imperfections to look for learning and growth opportunities.
do i do my 4 rs? i do them partly,i lack one or two rs
The last 6 months of my career I have been efficient but not effective.
No, but I think I better figure it out!
I have been spending my time reading, so that I can be well informed, as well as watching public tv, so that when I write, I am informed and knowledgeable of those around me. I want to help those who are in need.
most of my time is spent doing things for the right reasons
I want to be both efficient and effective, It would be good to be both, efficient and effective, because that means that we are on the top of our game and we are doing our job well, not just efficiency, effectively
"To many people just talk, talk disapears in a breath, doing changes the physical world." Thomas R. Fennell
absolutely. I trully believe that once I do that long enough soon it will become a habit.
step by step i am believing it
Yes I do BELIEVE Encouragement can go a long way in giving us hope helping to motivate us in doing better. Here are some words of encouragement that came on a refridgerator magnet that I bought 20 years ago, and I still strive to apply this to my life even today.

COMMIT YOUR SELF TO CONSTANT SELF IMPROVEMENT
I would say from with in myself that is where my commitment stands, that is what I want to be commited to, no matter what anyone else has to say about it.
Sometimes I believe, sometimes I
fall back into my old stinkin' thinkin'.

There must be a way to consistently
reprogram myself to believe for
positive outcomes.
So they have said that love & romance inspires one to achieve,but I beg to differ, love thyself & thou shall be loved. My self esteem sky rockets when I recieve approval from a special person ,if that special doesn't respond ,I am let down and hurt & depressed & frustrated. Someone is doing that to me now. I get such high hopes ,I invest all this emotion in to believing and not even so as so much as a word from him. Let downs are hard to come by, I believe that I AM THE BETTER PERSON, because I tried the TQ program.
To be Organized and Consistent are my two goals for the upcoming week
I want to be effective, but being efficent, is just as good and that is what I would want to be. It would be best to be effective and efficient, that way you get the job done best to your ability.
I think that a word of encouragement, because encouragement, goes alot farther, than a words of discouragement.
I think that a word of encouragement, because encouragement, goes alot farther, than a words of discouragement.
Yes I do. Perplexing at times but completely absorbing.
I don't find my work totally absorbing, because it is well, just housework, and what is absorbing in that? I would love to be an Drug and Alcohol rehab counselor, it would help those people who have been into drugs and helped them to stay sober and not get back into their addictions again.
I can believe that and I believe that choices are given to you by showing you opportunities. Its up to you to accept or reject.
My work is completely absorbing when I do not have a list of my tasks that need to be completed based on priority. I get overwhelmed when this happens but I fight through it all.
No...I've wasted a lot of time. Rather than focus on the past, I look forward to doing so much more with the new skills I am learning.
In the last 6 months I have accomplished some of my step goals on the way to my big goals. I am impatient with myself for not making more of them. Looking back I can see where I spun my wheels or missed entirely. My best tool for accomplishment is my focus and desire to get "there."
The implied 5th R is REVIEW of the R's. In this review, I learn which of the R's I'm excluding at any moment (right now 1 of them). Overall, TQ has helped me to create great outcomes! Thank you ER & staff for all you do in the world! Keep up the great work!
Dr. Pam (remember me...it has been a while!)
Making the best use of my time while driving from Brooksville, Kentucky to Huntsville, Alabama and then on to Booneville, Mississippi is where my focus is. I will not be a divided person. I will remain focused on what matters the most.
I am more efficient and effective now than I was6 months ago. I still struggle with multi-tasking.
I would say that I am not fully effective or efficient as I need to be. But I am working towards that now.
I am more efficient than effective. I believe that effectiveness is something that I must work on to really improve my overall effectiveness. Once I am to have lasting effectiveness, I believe everything will come together.
I didn't do any quick fix during 2001 .We don't do drama .We don't want publicity .We don't want media attention .It doesn't mean that we want a peaceful life .When American soldiers are fighting bravely in Afganistan how can we sleep in peace .But we are fighting for last 12-13 years .
I didn't do a quick fix in 2001 .There was a heavy fighting going on amognst spies of different countries .
2001 Episode in a nut shell :
1)American spy plane entered in chinese zone in early part of 2001.
2)China released American people but started gaurding Asia pacific
after that.We were all under chinese and pakistani radar.
3)A heavy fight started .
4)I started monitoring the events in Singapore .Night services continued.
5)Some people gave poison in my food by mid 2001 .
6)A lady triggered mail from my mail box "We will be hijacked soon" in july 2001 .She didn't have mail access .
7)This mail was tapped by Chinese and Singaporean intelligence department .May be those monitoring the mail flow in bank were also responsible .
8)I prepared a software to gaurd the situation .It got rejected at Bank end .
9)China sent the information to Pakistani ISI about the mail .Pakistan in turn handed over the material to Taliban .
10)I was forced to leave Singapore after this .I deffered my marriage from Aug 2001 to Jan 2002 .I wanted to safegaurd the situation .
11)I had to finally leave singapore on 14th Aug .
12)I sent the message to a community "We need to save the world" before leaving Singapore .This message couldn't be understood .
12)I left Singapore .

13)Rest is history .
14)Both China and Pakistan received punishment for their mis deed .

You know we faced the reality during 2001 .We were mentally prepared for the fight .I have seen hard life of army boys in Indian army bases .I have seen firing practices ,dazzling sound of anti tank bombs ,rockets etc .The fear factor was not there in me .I was prepared to face a situation like 2001 .I was doing a very good job in Asia pacific region during 2001 .But it was enemy plan to remove me from Singapore by Aug 2001 so that they can launch an attack on America .Actually they wanted to attack both America and India .It didn't happen to India during 2001 but happened in Mumbai during 2008 .
You know we are the boys who face reality .In my extra time I watch Global events and Global news .

I am partner of America .I feel very good when America is progressing in every sphere .
I like Mr. Colin Powell very much .I liked Mr. Bush also very much .I watched the program in TV when Mr. Powel was presenting the case in UN for war against Iraq .What I felt is that occupying central Mid east was very vital at that moment for US .Some countries provoked Taliban and muslim radicals in those days of 2001 .We were fighting heavily from Asia Pacific in those days .
I like Mr. Obama also very much .I am partner for America and Europe .
We will fight to bring peace in the world .We will contribute in Job creation,Technical growth and innovation .

I have respect for all Seniors those who were working during 2001 .But I knew it clearly that without me these managers can't tackle the situation for even 2 months .These managers in the bank were from premier management schools and most pathetic story is that after my removal (14th Aug,2001) from Singapore they failed within one month resulting in a violent attack on America .You don't know which person is critical and who isn't in the complex Global scenario .But those managers admitted after 9/11 that I think too much about the world and don't think about my work and my career .America is suffering due to such inefficient managers .These managers even said that $1600 (My Singapore Salary)was too much to pay me and my company sent me to Singapore on a paid Holiday .
It hurted me a lot .I ask this question to such managers why they couldn't tackle the situation even for one month after my removal from Singapore .
So you really don't know who is a good manager and who is not .

We are boys from Indian Army bases .We are serious people .We have seen how much serious the boys are from army bases when they go for secret mission or combat .
Global politics is a painful thing .It restrict us from doing many good jobs .
I love America and American people .We will try to do something good for them .
I don't know if you know me or not .But I don't like to get media attention or people attention .We would like to contribute silently for the country and the world .
Lots of effort... questions... answers... success and failures.

Failures outnumber successes by about 20% this year -- so are well on our way to a spectacular year!

Yes, I am both efficient and effective -- BUT -- there is always room for improvement on both fronts.

I spend a lot of time in basic research, and this is inherently inefficient. However, I am highly organized, so the work goes fast!

4 R's are top of mind, so probably 80-90% of the time on the Right way, 100% on Right Things and Reasons, and 90% on the Right Time.

My TQ score averages 92 each day, so the above is consistent and is the
Yes, I know the big WHY of my life. I have written 3 books on the subject and a 4th is in the works.

I am here to help people unleash their full potential -- by every means possible.

Highly effective, highly efficient, highly successful.
er
Yes, I believe that if I make smarter choices and take smarter actions, I get better results... and ultimately, achieve the success I desire.

Whenever there is an attack on US there will be a counter attack on China/Iran/North Korea .We love such counter attacks .
Integrity - I try to live it each day.
