|Your Midas Motivational Moment...|
This TQ Factor of your performance (Act Now 10b) is important because it drives a feeling of JOYFUL IMAGINATION and CONFIDENCE deep within you.
What Is Your Plan Of Attack?
Outline your big projects so that their individual components are crystal clear to you. Then organize your plan of attack around those components, taking them on one at a time.
For the next overwhelming job, ask yourself "What could be the best way to do the job?" Jot some ideas on paper, then form a coherent outline to follow and get started.
Today's Big Idea For Action is from the Act Now Color: Stop Getting Ready to Get Ready. Find a Way to Get Started.

So, Are You Committed to Maximum Success?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Act Now Factor 10B? (Stop Getting Ready to Get Ready. Find a Way to Get Started.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (10B rated 8 or better) suggests you're someone who loves a challenge and invents clever ways to get things started. Knowing the difficulty of the task at hand, you immediately attempt some kind of progress as soon as possible -- even when you have no idea how it will turn out. You brainstorm different directions to get started and explore any options available. With every small bite into the project, you make some kind of progress. You build a little more momentum, gain additional information and begin to develop the final action plan for how to complete the entire project.
A lack of commitment suggests you have trouble getting started on difficult projects. Too often when faced with a daunting project, you find it hard to start. You tend to focus on the time, effort and the difficulty involved. Unfortunately, while you are convincing yourself why it will be so hard to get started, you fail to argue the alternative. It may not occur to you to: Get more information; Ask for advice; Brainstorm possibilities; Invite others to help; Make a written plan; Do a little each day; Delegate parts to others; Organize your materials; Or find a way to make it a little more fun!
What happens when you do Factor 10B more frequently?
You have more power. The more difficult the task, the sooner you start and the sooner it's done.
You accumulate performance positives like "Resourceful, Creative and Proactive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do Factor 10B?
You have less power. You will never make significant progress in your career until you can handle any project that comes your way.
Negatives like "Intimidated, Uncertain and Apprehensive" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
