"It is those who have this imperative demand for the best in their natures, and who will accept nothing short of it, that holds the banners of progress, that set the standards, the ideals, for others."
~ Orison Swett Marden

Read It Now, Or Read It Later?
Batch your reading materials and go through them all at one scheduled time.
Batch your reading materials to be read during your otherwise idle time this week.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Organize Color: Batch Similar Tasks Together.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- What time of day would be best for your designated reading time?
- What different types of reading do you have that you can combine during a single reading session?
- Could you plan for reading during your "down time" while waiting or traveling?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
A high commitment (8E rated 8 or better) suggests that your recurrent tasks are systematically completed in batches. Instead of being tempted to do whatever appears next, you ignore this impulse by planning ahead and grouping similar activities together. This may be as simple as paying your bills once a month, putting off a trip to the north end of town until you have more errands to run, or buying all office supplies at the same time. This skill helps you get more done at one time than if you did each individual task separately.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who takes on each task as it presents itself. When failing to group tasks together, your days consist of backtracking and duplication of effort. You make six trips to the same store in two days, you go back and forth to the fax or copy machine all day long -- then have the audacity to complain that there are never enough hours in the day! This waste of time increases your stress level, and decreases the amount of time available for more productive activities.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 8E more frequently?
You have more power. You save time by doing five things at one time, instead of one thing at five different times.
You accumulate performance positives like "Efficient, Practical and Organized" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 8E?
You have less power. You waste time whenever you do one thing five times instead of five things at one time.
Negatives like "Inefficient, Impractical and Repetitive" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
