"It's simply a matter of doing what you do best and not worrying about what the other fellow is going to do."
~ John R. Amos

Teach yourself to always ask, "What's next?" What are you going to do after you finish what you're working on next? The more you plan ahead, the more you'll accomplish in the time you have.
Smooth out your day. Always know what and where your next step is so you won't trip over it.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Make Plans Color: Plan at Least One Step Ahead.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- How much longer will your present task take? Then what? And after that?
- Are your daily tasks linked one to another or just randomly ordered?
- Is your agenda for tomorrow complete and prioritized?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
A high commitment (5I rated 8 or better) suggests you've mastered the basics of planning. You are the role model for efficiency and a master at reducing stress. You always know what you're going to do next and what you're going to need to do it. You know what your schedule holds for tomorrow and exactly where you're supposed to be. By planning ahead, you ordinarily bypass the obstacles that trip up people who only look down at their feet as they rush by in a flurry of misbegotten activity.
A lack of commitment suggests you complete your tasks one at a time without thinking about your next move. Your progress is rarely a straight line. Instead, it might be better described as a series of random actions in divergent directions. You are often forced to backtrack and redo what you just completed -- because you didn't foresee how it would affect your next move. By failing to plan ahead, you are less efficient and prepared for what to do next. You run in circles -- a lot!
What happens when you do TQ Factor 5I more frequently?
You have more power. You're always prepared because you think WIN WIN (What's Important Now... What's Important Next...)
You accumulate performance positives like "Prepared, Skillful and Productive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 5I?
You have less power. Costly mistakes are made when you fail to plan ahead.
Negatives like "Shortsighted, Unprepared and Inefficient" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
