Become Considerate — Eliminate Inconsiderate!

Improve TQ Optimize Factor 9E...

"I respect other people's time, and create systems which help them to respect mine."

Time spent with others can either be highly productive or barely productive -- depending on how you use your time together. Be honest. In any given day, who wastes whose time the most? Create systems for others to respect your time and you, theirs. When possible, take requests and questions from others in batches and do the same for them. Show your respect for other people's time during phone calls, appointments and meetings. Be prepared and punctual. Value other people's time and they will value yours.

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.

"Anything that is wasted effort represents wasted time. The best management of our time thus becomes linked inseparably with the best utilization of our efforts." ~ Ted W. Engstrom

TQ Factor 9E "Thin Line"...

Considerate vs. Inconsiderate is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 9E 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 Considerate... and a little LESS Inconsiderate?

TQ Factor 9E CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are highly productive with the time you spend with others. You're aware of time limits and what can be accomplished each day. Knowing this, you treat time as the single most valuable resource on Earth. Knowing that everyone else is also pressed for time, you make sure you don't distract them from their work. Because you have created and communicated timesaving procedures for others to make the best use of their time -- as well as yours -- you now have more time to focus on your own projects.

TQ Factor 9E COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests your time spent with others can be disruptive and inefficient. Your poor planning and disorganization wastes everyone's time. For example, you may have to make two callbacks to get information you could have obtained during the first call. You rarely take steps to prevent the incoming barrage of phone calls. The repeated requests that interrupt your day cause you to either reluntantly accept the sacrifice made in time lost -- or worse -- openly resent the time you have to give to others.

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

You save everyone's valuable time by being well-planned, on-point and on-time. You accumulate performance positives like "Considerate, Respectful and Efficient" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

Your inefficient interactions with others wastes everyone's time. Negatives like "Inconsiderate, Disorganized and Distracted" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
