So What If It's A Little Late?

What will happen if you procrastinate?

1. Increased stress from the pressure of the impending deadline...

2. Potentially poor judgment caused by an immediate deadline...

3. Missed opportunities; alternatives and options. Or...

4. All of the above.

Personal power is measured by your ability to take action. Power is a function of how fast you can take an idea and make it a reality. The more proactive you are, the more productive you will be. Until an action is taken, nothing happens, and nothing is created. Think in terms of consequences. If you choose to delay an action, what will you gain? What will it cost you? When you act without delay, you immediately increase productivity and accelerate success.

Procrastination never turned a profit.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Act Now Color: Take Immediate Action on Whatever's Next -- Regardless!

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. If you make a bad decision because you've waited till the last minute, how much time is left to correct the problem?
  3. What have you put off today, and what could it cost you tomorrow?
  5. What deadlines do you need to catch up on?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Act Now Factor 10A? (Take Immediate Action on Whatever's Next -- Regardless!) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (10A rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who would rather take action and make things happen, than sit around and worry about what could happen. Your motto is "Carpe diem -- seize the day." As soon as you realize something needs to get done, you act without hesitation. Once you have created a prioritized to-do list, you start at the top and don't stop until every item is checked off. By combining this skill, with the ability to target valuable objectives and create detailed plans, you have become so productive it's a little bit scary. But, isn't it fun.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who spends as much time and effort avoiding work as others who get everything done. With a motto of "but what ifÉ" you pause before taking action. Too often a brief pause becomes a pregnant pause that gives birth to an internal argument that keeps you from taking any action at all. Whenever you "over-analyze" and spend too much time preparing to get ready, you waste valuable time and energy that could be used to move your plans ahead instead.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 10A more frequently?

You have more power. Perpetual action produces an amazing number of highly rewarding results.

You accumulate performance positives like "Action-oriented, Dynamic and Industrious" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 10A?

You have less power. Every time you procrastinate, you waste valuable time and miss a chance to move ahead.

Negatives like "Procrastinating, Hesitant and Unmotivated" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Worth 1000 Times the price paid..."

Been there... done that... and I'm not easily impressed. I've purchased thousands of dollars of books, seminars, video tapes, and an assortment of training aids that would fill a garage. Never have I been so impressed before. Simple, straight-forward and very structured. This is the LAST program I will ever need to take! I wish it would have been my FIRST...
