Do You Go From One Urgency To The Next?

Addiction to the urgent, it saps your strength for more important goals. Do today whatever is necessary to prevent the urgent from making its demands on you tomorrow.

Urgencies are a fact of life. There will always be emergencies that demand your attention. The key is to handle them without getting pulled off course from your preplanned priorities. You are never the most productive when you are continuously enmeshed in low value, time consuming urgencies. Time spent improving your systems -- and planning ahead to prevent low-grade urgencies -- is a wiser investment than time spent administering emergency relief.

Avoid more crises by simply asking of each plan, "What could go wrong?" and plan accordingly. Make it important, now, to eliminate the urgent from the future.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Prioritize Color: Remain Focused on Preplanned Priorities.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. How frequently do you work in an atmosphere of urgency?
  3. What can you do today to prevent an urgency tomorrow?
  5. What steps can you take in your current project to address possible mishaps in the future?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Prioritize Factor 6I? (Remain Focused on Preplanned Priorities.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (6I rated 8 or better) suggests you can take what life throws at you, and still stay focused on what you want to accomplish. With a list of daily priorities firmly in place, you take care of urgencies quickly, and immediately get back on track. You respond to demands and interruptions without losing touch with your plans and priorities. Understanding that urgencies disrupt plans, you are constantly looking ahead. You do whatever you can to make sure all your bases are covered, so you won't be pulled away by an emergency at the last minute.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you allow your urgencies to be more important than your priorities. You find it hard to get back to your original priorities whenever an urgency interrupts you. You have the mistaken belief that just because something is demanding, it's more important, and you don't stop to consider if the urgency actually deserves your attention. It may not even occur to you to try to prevent these recurring demands from interrupting you in the future.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 6I more frequently?

You have more power. Urgencies are resolved without taking over your daily priorities.

You accumulate performance positives like "Preemptive, Responsive and Committed" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 6I?

You have less power. You are a slave to time wasting, priority busting, energy depleting urgencies.

Negatives like "Diverted, Reactive and Stressed" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Worth 1000 Times the price paid..."

Been there... done that... and I'm not easily impressed. I've purchased thousands of dollars of books, seminars, video tapes, and an assortment of training aids that would fill a garage. Never have I been so impressed before. Simple, straight-forward and very structured. This is the LAST program I will ever need to take! I wish it would have been my FIRST...
