You'd Be Here Now, If Only...

Making every minute count means focusing on the instant, "the now." Give every minute your undivided attention.

When you've planned ahead, you don't have to think about what's next, and you know you're right where you should be at any given moment.

Be here now.

Time is the most precious gift of all. Ask anyone facing a serious accident or illness, or an important deadline. Ask any parent watching their little girl all grown up and graduating from high school. You must learn how to become accountable for every minute in your day, because each day spent, is a day gone forever. Concentrate your time on only those things that produce the greatest reward and satisfaction to you.

Concentrating on what's at hand is easier when you know in advance what you'll be doing with your other moments too.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Optimize Color: Put a Value on Time Invested.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. How focused now are you on what you're doing?
  3. Are you having trouble focusing because you're concerned with something else? How can you fix this now?
  5. What would it take for you to value this minute more?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Optimize Factor 9A? (Put a Value on Time Invested.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (9A rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who reaps the greatest value possible from every passing minute. Realizing that when it's over -- it's over, you're always aware of how much time is left on the clock. This awareness of the fleeting passage of time keeps you accountable for each minute in your day. Because you are committed to your roles and focused on compelling goals, you clearly know where to invest your time. This helps you put every hour to its highest and best use. It also helps you eliminate activities that steal time away from more desirable, more rewarding activities.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who takes time for granted. It is only too common for your day to be over well before you realize it. You have trouble pointing to any progress from last week, and have no idea if your time was spent wisely or not. Entire days can be wasted on activities of only minimal interest or value to you. Opportunities are lost, because you think you can get to them tomorrow -- or you're always scrambling to complete projects at the last minute. On occasion, you are struck by the precious value of time, but the feeling is gone before the day is over. And you're too soon old -- and too late smart.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 9A more frequently?

You have more power. You get a greater return on your time when you squeeze maximum value out of every minute in the day.

You accumulate performance positives like "Vigilant, Accountable and Watchful" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 9A?

You have less power. Huge chunks of time are lost when you stop valuing every precious minute in your day.

Negatives like "Unmindful, Unconscious and Inattentive" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
