Are You A Perfectionist?

Perfectionism is so seductive because it seems so attainable...it's always just around the corner. But most times, what's just around the corner is another hour wasted thinking you can do the job more perfectly.

There are only 1440 minutes in a day. These are the minutes you have to spend on everything you want to get done. There will never be more, no matter how great the desire or need. There can be less when some of these same minutes are wasted on things that produce nothing in return. Time doesn't care how it is used. It moves on regardless of how much progress you make from each passing minute. You can invest your time in important pursuits, achieving desirable personal rewards. Or you can squander the opportunity of a lifetime by wasting the time you have.

Perfectionism may waste your time. The key is to know whether something needs to be perfect, versus when good is good enough.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Optimize Color: Make Every Minute Matter.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. It may not be perfect, but is it DONE?
  3. Would any reasonable person expect more than you've done so far?
  5. To be more productive, where do you need to loosen the strangle hold of your perfectionism?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Optimize Factor 9B? (Make Every Minute Matter.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (9B rated 8 or better) suggests you rarely waste a minute on things of no value to you. You establish clear priorities for how you will use your time every day. This makes it easy to identify those things that keep you from your high-payoff activities. You never take your minutes for granted -- nor squander precious time on things that have little value. When you do find a time waster, you quickly eliminate it. This gives you more time for those activities that you care about the most.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who spends time with little regard to what you get in trade. You rarely consider if you're making the best use of your time. You tend to rate your productivity based on the amount of time spent -- rather than the results accomplished -- and are rarely motivated to initiate time-saving measures. This means you can easily become distracted by even the most casual time-wasting diversions.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 9B more frequently?

You have more power. Your time is highly productive because you eliminate everything that isn't.

You accumulate performance positives like "Industrious, Focused and Pragmatic" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 9B?

You have less power. Precious gems of time are wasted with little to show in return.

Negatives like "Wasteful, Unmotivated and Lackadaisical" 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...
