Become Engaged — Eliminate Uninterested!

Improve TQ Optimize Factor 9D...

"I simplify my day by eliminating anything that's no longer of interest or value to me."

You can simplify your life by removing things that have lost their value to you. Discover what matters most to you and then focus on that. Look to your values. Anything that's not in direct alignment can be "simplified" out of your life. This gives you more time to focus on what's important. Scrutinize the items on your schedule and delete anything that is no longer rewarding. Eliminate any activities you no longer enjoy or that no longer offer you commensurate value for the time spent.

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.

"In truth, people can generally make time for what they choose to do; it is not really the time but the will that is lacking." ~ Sir John Lubbock

TQ Factor 9D "Thin Line"...

Engaged vs. Uninterested is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 9D 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
 
Engaged
Decisive
Rewarded
Interested
Focused
Involved
    Uninterested
Uninspired
Resentful
Cluttered
Unrewarded
Bored
 

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 Engaged... and a little LESS Uninterested?

TQ Factor 9D CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are someone who has little tolerance for anything that is more trouble than it's worth. You stop participating in activities when they no longer produce the value they once did. You tend to purchase the best you can afford and never hold on to anything that takes more time to maintain than the benefit it returns. You constantly review your master list of things to do and filter out projects that are no longer of interest. You regularly review where you spend your time to determine if it is worthy of your attention.

TQ Factor 9D COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who is too tolerant of things that are more trouble than they're worth. You go through daily routines, but few activities bring the satisfaction they once did. You may do a lot of things that don't interest you, only because you feel obligated to something or someone else. You simply may do a lot of things from habit, rarely considering whether or not you still get value from them. If you thought about it, you might discover a whole host of things that you spend more time maintaining than actually enjoying.

TQ Factor 9D BENEFIT: You have more power...

Your time is spent on things that are truly rewarding to you. You accumulate performance positives like "Engaged, Decisive and Rewarded" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 9D: Less Power...

You waste irreplaceable time on things you no longer value. Negatives like "Uninterested, Uninspired and Resentful" 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.
