"Lost wealth may be replaced by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance or medicine, but lost time is gone forever."

How Can 5 Good Minutes Give You 55 Better Ones?
Take a few minutes off each hour. But don't just sit there. Get up. Exercise or stretch. Get your blood flowing!
A break isn't necessarily a rest period. Use it to switch gears. Take a brisk walk, do exercises in your office or enjoy a nutritious snack.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Energy Color: Take Frequent Breaks to Stretch, Breathe & Snack.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Do you remember recess when you were a kid?
- Instead of another cup of coffee right now, how about a full stretch and some deep breaths?
- What quick routine can you repeat to stimulate & recharge your energy throughout the day?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Energy Factor 1G? (Take Frequent Breaks to Stretch, Breathe & Snack.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (1G rated 8 or better) suggests you are committed to producing fifty-five minutes of high quality performance for every hour in your day. Professional athletes take time-outs to recharge and regroup. So do you. You know you can only be at your best for so long before you need to take a break. Aware that you can only go as far as your body will take you, you give it regular tune-ups with periodic stretches, walks and nutritious snacks. You also give yourself periodic "mental breaks" to keep burn-out from depleting your performance.
A lack of commitment suggests you only have two speeds: "flat out" and "burned out." You may be so completion-driven that you've never found a way to pace yourself. Unfortunately you often forget that you're going to need a high energy level later in the day. While you may get a lot done initially, later your production drops dramatically. Even when mid morning and mid afternoon slumps are crying out for attention, you ignore them. When this happens, it's harder to gear back up than it would have been to maintain your energy level.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 1G more frequently?
You have more power. Your average speed climbs to the top fast -- and stays there all day long.
You accumulate performance positives like "Recharged, Energized and Rejuvenated" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 1G?
You have less power. You hit your top speed for a brief instant, but it's all downhill from there.
Negatives like "Run-down, Depleted and Drained" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
