Which Apple Should You Polish First?
When you find yourself overloaded with assignments from others, make it a point to reach an agreement on which ones will receive top priority.
Overload comes from not participating in the process. Reach an agreement on the priority of every shared or delegated task.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Prioritize Color: Maintain "To-Be-Done" List -- Prioritized by Value.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- What priority have others given to the projects you have been assigned?
- Are you in agreement with everyone else on the priorities given to your assignments?
- If you're working with someone, did you ask what the other person's priorities are for the work you are doing together?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Prioritize Factor 6G? (Maintain "To-Be-Done" List -- Prioritized by Value.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (6G rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who prioritizes your actions well before you take them. Before plunging into your first task, you prioritize the relative value of each item on your to-do list. You know what your goals are for the week, and how much time you have available to work them. You proactively plan your day by prioritizing all of the things you want to get done. It's a simple skill that takes little time each morning. When you're done, you know the relative value of every item on your list -- where to start --and when you expect to get finished.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who doesn't know what's important -- and confuses effort with results. You start most days with nothing but a mental review of what needs to be done. You then rush to do the easiest task, or the one that appears to be the most urgent. You stay busy all day, but rarely feel truly productive. A great day for you is when you check off a long list of items and meet most of your deadlines -- regardless of their inherent value.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 6G more frequently?
You have more power. You know exactly where your time will be the most productive.
You accumulate performance positives like "Predetermined, Discerning and Productive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 6G?
You have less power. Your to-do list is only a reminder system and offers no insight for where you could be the most productive.
Negatives like "Impulsive, Reactive and Ineffective" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
