How Can You Avoid Complexity's Meat Grinder?
The more complex the project, the more essential it is to plan. Planning is the number one way to simplify the complex and increase your chances of success.
Use a written plan to reduce the confusion of the complex to the clarity of simple, successive steps.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Well, do you want to save time or do you just want to work your butt off every day?
- Take a look at your current project's plan. What additional planning steps can be filled in now?
- For your next project, how much planning time should you schedule?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Make Plans Factor 5D? (Get More Specific About WHO, WHAT & HOW -- Now!) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (5D rated 8 or better) suggests you are well-prepared and highly productive at whatever you set out to do. You are capable of reaching almost any destination you desire, because you have the ability to write a specific set of instructions for how to get there. With a carefully crafted plan, you take on things that others would consider impossible. Your confidence to proceed comes from your basic skill of identifying "do-able" steps to get from one major objective to another. With a fully detailed map in hand, the key to your success is following your own instructions -- step-by-step.
A lack of commitment suggests you may know where you want to go but you have no idea how to proceed. Your progress toward each of your goals is slower than you'd like. By not thinking through the best route in advance, you are often delayed as you stop to reconsider the next move. This "making-it-up-on-the-fly" routine causes you to take numerous wrong turns, and forces you to retrace many of your steps. Every time you feel lost, you lose a little of the hope that you'll ultimately succeed -- and any hope that you'll actually arrive on time.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 5D more frequently?
You have more power. Your most difficult goals are simplified to a series of single steps leading in one direction.
You accumulate performance positives like "Detailed, Thorough and Deliberate" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 5D?
You have less power. It takes a lot longer to get where you want to go because you haven't prepared a detailed map in advance.
Negatives like "Ambiguous, Uncertain and Indefinite" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
