"Remain connected to my performance ~ remain committed to my goals. I thought this was just a mindless buzz-phrase until I, well, committed myself to higher level results. Thank You." ~ Mike Anderson

Make it a point to page through your Master List periodically, and delete anything that is no longer of promise or interest. You don't need to wait for spring for a little spring cleaning!

You can simplify your life by removing things that have lost their value to you. Discover what matters most to you and then focus on that. Look to your values. Anything that's not in direct alignment can be "simplified" out of your life. This gives you more time to focus on what's important. Scrutinize the items on your schedule and delete anything that is no longer rewarding. Eliminate any activities you no longer enjoy or that no longer offer you commensurate value for the time spent.

By simplifying your Master List, you put more punch in the projects that remain.

"In truth, people can generally make time for what they choose to do; it is not really the time but the will that is lacking." ~ Sir John Lubbock 


Today's Big Idea For Action is from the Optimize Color: Simplify by Eliminating What's No Longer Interesting or Rewarding.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Which of the wishes on your Master List will never make it to a real goal because they're just not interesting enough to you.
  3. How many of your least important projects can you scratch off your Master List today?
  5. Be candid. What else are you still entertaining on your lists that are no longer of interest or value to you right now?

So, Are You Committed to Maximum Success?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Optimize Factor 9D? (Simplify by Eliminating What's No Longer Interesting or Rewarding.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (9D rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who has little tolerance for anything that is more trouble than it's worth. You stop participating in activities when they no longer produce the value they once did. You tend to purchase the best you can afford and never hold on to anything that takes more time to maintain than the benefit it returns. You constantly review your master list of things to do and filter out projects that are no longer of interest. You regularly review where you spend your time to determine if it is worthy of your attention.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who is too tolerant of things that are more trouble than they're worth. You go through daily routines, but few activities bring the satisfaction they once did. You may do a lot of things that don't interest you, only because you feel obligated to something or someone else. You simply may do a lot of things from habit, rarely considering whether or not you still get value from them. If you thought about it, you might discover a whole host of things that you spend more time maintaining than actually enjoying.

What happens when you do Factor 9D more frequently?

You have more power. Your time is spent on things that are truly rewarding to you.

You accumulate performance positives like "Engaged, Decisive and Rewarded" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do Factor 9D?

You have less power. You waste irreplaceable time on things you no longer value.

Negatives like "Uninterested, Uninspired and Resentful" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"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.
