"What Were We Talking About?"

When you're talking with others, don't let them ramble. Sticking to the point will help both of you stay focused on the task at hand.

The exchange of ideas from one person to another has never been an exact science. You may never understand the other person completely. Neither can you automatically expect others to understand you, and the full background behind the ideas you are trying to communicate. Don't presume that you know what the other person is thinking. Stop the mutual mystification and get it right the first time. Assume you don't know. Ask. Listen. Clarify, Reach Mutual agreement.

Rambling wastes time, distorts the focus, and steals energy from the task at hand. Get a grip on it!

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Synergize Color: Speak Clearly -- Listen Carefully -- Confirm Messages.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Do you know any ramblers? Are you one?
  2.  
     
  3. When you help others stay on track, won't it make you more conscious of your own tendency to wander?
  4.  
     
  5. What will you do the next time Ramblin' Rick gets rolling along?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Synergize Factor 7J? (Speak Clearly -- Listen Carefully -- Confirm Messages.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (7J rated 8 or better) suggests you communicate clearly and always clarify what others want from you. It's partially a personality trait and it's partially the skill you apply to get things right. You gain greater insight each time you speak with others. You're committed to not only hearing what others have to say, but more importantly, understanding them. When you offer ideas to others, you double-check to make sure they truly understood what you think you said -- and that what they think is actually what you mean!

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are often mistaken about what others are saying -- simply because you fail to communicate your thoughts clearly. Many of your relationships are filled with frustration and confusion. Misunderstanding results from failing to confirm and clarify incoming and outgoing messages. This results in bad feelings, mistakes and time lost. You are absolutely certain no one speaks "Plain English" any more -- and what people hear, is not even close to what you say!

What happens when you do TQ Factor 7J more frequently?

You have more power. Your skill at listening attentively, and speaking clearly, helps you reach a mutual understanding for how you can help each other.

You accumulate performance positives like "Articulate, Exacting and Observant" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 7J?

You have less power. You frequently make critical mistakes, because you have no idea what the other person is actually thinking.

Negatives like "Confusing, Imprecise and Misunderstood" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Worth 1000 Times the price paid..."

Been there... done that... and I'm not easily impressed. I've purchased thousands of dollars of books, seminars, video tapes, and an assortment of training aids that would fill a garage. Never have I been so impressed before. Simple, straight-forward and very structured. This is the LAST program I will ever need to take! I wish it would have been my FIRST...
