"If you're climbing the ladder of life, you go rung by rung, one step at a time. Don't look too far up, set your goals high but take one step at a time. Sometimes you don't think you're progressing until you step back and see how high you've really gone." ~ Donny Osmond

Whose Finish Line Are You Attempting To Cross?

Make sure that the goal you're focusing on is your own -- and not just someone else's. You have to "own" the goal even if it's not your own. If you can't wholeheartedly "buy in" to a goal... wholeheartedly back it with heart and soul... back off!

The best predictor of success is your degree of commitment to your goals. Whenever you set a goal, write out why you're committed to accomplishing it. The "why" is far more important than the "how." Commitment -- sheer passion and will power -- can help overcome any deficiency in time, money or education. Make sure each of your goals is worthy of the time and effort necessary to achieve it. Then, make sure each of your goals is getting the absolute, unconditional commitment it deserves.

It's hard to be 100% committed when your heart ain't in it. (And without full commitment, you're just wasting precious time... chasing after things that simply don't matter.)

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Set Goals Color: Fully Commit to Your Goal -- or Change It.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Whose goal are you focused on right now?
  3. Is your whole heart in what you're doing right now?
  5. If it isn't already, how can you transform what you're doing right now into a goal of your own?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Set Goals Factor 4F? (Fully Commit to Your Goal -- or Change It.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (4F rated 8 or better) suggests commitment comes naturally because you set goals that have tremendous personal value. You are absolutely committed to achieving the goals you have right now. You can prove this by adding up the amount of time actually spent working towards these goals. Each goal receives the attention it deserves, and significant progress is made towards its attainment each week. You never complain about the amount of time spent in achieving these goals because your desire for the final outcome justifies the effort. This rare commitment helps you persist with passion, until each goal is reached -- regardless of how high or long-term it may be.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you have no compelling reason to achieve the goals you set. Sure there's a payoff for each of your current goals, but it won't be a huge loss if you don't reach them in time. Your goals may be so unrealistic that you don't really believe they are attainable. Your goals may have been set from a desire to be like someone else, but they are not what you value the most. Your goals may have been delegated to you. Regardless of the reason, there are times when you question whether your goals are worth the time, stress and effort they are costing you.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 4F more frequently?

You have more power. You have a high probability of achieving your goals -- regardless of their size.

You accumulate performance positives like "Determined, Wholehearted and Dedicated" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 4F?

You have less power. Lacking commitment you have little chance of achieving the most important and rewarding goals.

Negatives like "Ambivalent, Lackadaisical and Doubtful" 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.
