Become Prolific — Eliminate Myopic!

Improve TQ Optimize Factor 9I...

"I look for ways to double my results by completing two things at the same time."

You don't have to double your speed to double your productivity. Instead, you can increase your results by combining complimentary tasks, projects or roles. Plan ahead and look for ways to maximize your time. Before you proceed, see if there is anything else you could be doing simultaneously. When you find a way to do two things in the same block of time you achieve twice the results -- with little additional effort.

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 9I "Thin Line"...

Prolific vs. Myopic is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 9I 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 Prolific... and a little LESS Myopic?

TQ Factor 9I CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are motivated to discover how you can conveniently complete two things instead of just one. The secret to your productivity is not running around at twice the speed of everyone else. Instead, you actually get more done by slowing down. Before you begin any task, you ask, "What else can I accomplish while I'm doing this?" You read your trade journals while flying on a business trip. You pitch your new proposal to two additional prospects while on the same trip, and finish writing all your thank you letters on your flight home.

TQ Factor 9I COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you haven't yet learned how to maximize your time. You tend to think in terms of "What is the one thing that needs to get done now?" You rarely look for ways to combine activities and projects. For example, it may not occur to you that you could spend more time with your son by volunteering together at your favorite charity -- or that you could find a business client who likes to play chess as often as you do.

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

You double your productivity when you find ways to do two things at the same time. You accumulate performance positives like "Prolific, Productive and Efficient" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

It takes you twice as long to complete the same two activities when you do them one at a time. Negatives like "Myopic, Inefficient and Linear" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
