"To will is to select a goal, determine a course of action that will bring one to that goal, and then hold to that action until the goal is reached. The key is action."
~ Michael Hanson

Are You Giving Your Top Priorities Enough Time?
Prioritizing your goals and estimating the amount of time spent on each allows you to determine if you're spending the proper amount of time on the most important goals.
Remember the Pareto Principle -- or 80/20 rule? That's nothing! You can increase your results by 400% this week by spending 80% of your time on your most important goals.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Prioritize Color: Preview ALL Goals -- Choose Most Rewarding to Focus on Each Week.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Which goal is your #1 goal right now?
- If your #1 goal isn't getting the majority of your time, what is? Why?
- What can you do with your schedule and priority list to increase the amount of time spent on your #1 goal activities?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Prioritize Factor 6B? (Preview ALL Goals -- Choose Most Rewarding to Focus on Each Week.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (6B rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who never loses sight of what you want to accomplish each week. By periodically reviewing the goals for every area of your life, you make sure that none vanish from view, or suffer from lack of attention. You know that you can't work on all of your goals simultaneously. Therefore, you select those that win out in both priority and urgency for the week. Realizing that each of your other goals are clamoring for their turn next, you are highly motivated to complete this week's goals so that you can move other long term goals closer into view.
A lack of commitment suggests you are too busy reacting to immediate demands to focus on what you really want. There was the book you were going to write, the garden you were going to plant and the new sales territory you were going to open. But who can think of these things when there's so much to be done right now? Weeks fly by in a flash, and they all begin to look the same. With a short sighted, day-by-day view on what needs to get done next, you rarely find the extra time to work on those special projects -- and entire parts of your life disappear from view.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 6B more frequently?
You have more power. You have a self-initiated purpose and a goal to achieve each week.
You accumulate performance positives like "Selective, Fulfilled and Deliberate" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 6B?
You have less power. Many important areas of your life never get the attention they deserve.
Negatives like "Habitual, Unthinking and Negligent" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
