Become Vigilant — Eliminate Unmindful!

Improve TQ Optimize Factor 9A...

"I value every precious minute in the day."

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.

Remember, OPTIMIZE is the ninth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because the truth is, you already have all the time there is.

You CAN achieve your greatest dreams and aspirations. Simply improve your TQ Optimize Color.

TQ Factor 9A "Thin Line"...

Vigilant vs. Unmindful is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 9A more often, and the following POSITIVE characteristics will automatically begin to accumulate and flow into to your performance—moving you TOWARDS the results you want and the success you desire.

Positives     Negatives

Choose to take this action infrequently, or not at all, and the opposing NEGATIVE traits will dominate your performance and sabotaging your success... moving you AWAY from achieving your goals and aspirations.

Think about it. How much more successful would you be if you were a little MORE Vigilant... and a little LESS Unmindful?

TQ Factor 9A CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment 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.

TQ Factor 9A COST to your performance...

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.

TQ Factor 9A BENEFIT: 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.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 9A: 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.

"You should call this the Survival Edge..."

I've taken a dozen time management courses and read 20 books on improving my time management and organization skills. This goes WAY beyond anything I could ever hope for. It gave me a serious edge when I came up for my last job review, not to mention the confidence I now have.
