"I do this page daily — like checking my stocks, the weather, Dilbert, Linked IN and Twitter. It is the best way to start my day I have ever found. Kudos!" ~ Bryce Everate
|Your Midas Motivational Moment...|
This TQ Factor of your performance (Organize 8e) is important because it drives a feeling of ORGANIZATION and FULFILLMENT deep within you.
Is Your Desk Covered With Phone Messages?
Establish a time every day for using the telephone in a concentrated burst. Use this time to return calls, make important calls or keep in touch with your contacts on a regular basis.
Batch as many of your calls as you can into one block of time.
"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
Today's Big Idea For Action is from the Organize Color: Batch Similar Tasks Together.

So, Are You Committed to Maximum Success?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Organize Factor 8E? (Batch Similar Tasks Together.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
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 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 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.
