Become Articulate — Eliminate Confusing!

Improve TQ Synergize Factor 7J...

"I communicate clearly with others, and consistently reach mutual understanding."

The exchange of ideas from one person to another has never been an exact science. You may never understand the other person completely. Neither can you automatically expect others to understand you, and the full background behind the ideas you are trying to communicate. Don't presume that you know what the other person is thinking. Stop the mutual mystification and get it right the first time. Assume you don't know. Ask. Listen. Clarify, Reach Mutual agreement.

Remember, SYNERGIZE is the seventh color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because once your 24-hour day is filled up, the only way you can become more productive, increase the quality of your results, or reduce the time required for accomplishing your goals is through the participation and contribution of other people.

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

"Executive ability is deciding quickly and getting somebody else to do the work." ~ John G. Pollard

TQ Factor 7J "Thin Line"...

Articulate vs. Confusing is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 7J 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 Articulate... and a little LESS Confusing?

TQ Factor 7J CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you communicate clearly and always clarify what others want from you. It's partially a personality trait and it's partially the skill you apply to get things right. You gain greater insight each time you speak with others. You're committed to not only hearing what others have to say, but more importantly, understanding them. When you offer ideas to others, you double-check to make sure they truly understood what you think you said -- and that what they think is actually what you mean!

TQ Factor 7J COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are often mistaken about what others are saying -- simply because you fail to communicate your thoughts clearly. Many of your relationships are filled with frustration and confusion. Misunderstanding results from failing to confirm and clarify incoming and outgoing messages. This results in bad feelings, mistakes and time lost. You are absolutely certain no one speaks "Plain English" any more -- and what people hear, is not even close to what you say!

TQ Factor 7J BENEFIT: You have more power...

Your skill at listening attentively, and speaking clearly, helps you reach a mutual understanding for how you can help each other. You accumulate performance positives like "Articulate, Exacting and Observant" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 7J: Less Power...

You frequently make critical mistakes, because you have no idea what the other person is actually thinking. Negatives like "Confusing, Imprecise and Misunderstood" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Yesterdays don't matter..."

You are 100% correct. What was good enough to get me by last year doesn't have a snow-balls chance this year. I have to do things differently -- just to keep pace. The Power of TQ truly opened my eyes to my current limitations and my ultimate potential. I am ever so grateful.
