Become Accountable — Eliminate Unaccountable!

Improve TQ Optimize Factor 9J...

"I periodically record my time and activities to review and improve the use of my time."

It's hard to think back and determine if you used your time well or not. Your evaluation may be too fuzzy and subjective to be reliable. However, an accurately kept time log will show you exactly how you invested your time -- and if it was a profitable investment. You can count the hours, review your results and see what you really got in trade. Once you know where you receive the greatest return, you can invest your time more wisely. Once you see where your time is wasted, you can learn to be more efficient.

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 9J "Thin Line"...

Accountable vs. Unaccountable is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 9J 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 Accountable... and a little LESS Unaccountable?

TQ Factor 9J CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you value your time so much that you invest a little of it tracking where it goes. Since you can't create more hours in a day, your conclusion is to learn how to make better use of the time you do have. By habitually recording the use of your time, you can review your activities to see where you are currently being productive -- and where improvements can be made. This takes almost no time to complete, and provides a wealth of information for how to increase your productivity over time.

TQ Factor 9J COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who has no idea where your time goes. As you look back on your week, it's all a blur. You may have been running so hard you had no extra time to write down what you just did. Days pass and weeks get marked off your calendar. Unfortunately, the progress toward your goals is not nearly as certain as the marking of time, and you look back wondering where it all went. You know you have to become more productive with the use of your time, but have no idea what to change.

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

You can't improve the use of your time when you have no idea of how it was originally spent. Negatives like "Unaccountable, Heedless and Uninformed" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
