"The idea is to make decisions and act on them -- to decide what is important to accomplish, to decide how something can best be accomplished, to find time to work at it and to get it done." ~ Karen Kakascik

Is There An Even Better Way?

You trap yourself when you believe your options are limited. There are always possibilities that you just haven't come up with yet. Ask others for their ideas, options and alternatives.

You will always be more productive when you focus on what you CAN do, rather than on what you CAN'T do. Keeping problems in perspective is essential to solving them and moving on. Remember to differentiate between what you can and can't control. Focus your time and energy on those things over which you have control. Don't live with problems. Seek a solution to every problem as soon as possible -- and enjoy the immense sense of freedom that comes from moving on.

Look for the other "best way" to do everything on your list of problems today. There is never "only one" way to do anything.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Attitude Color: Focus on the Solution -- Not the Problem.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. What's the other "best way" to do the task you are currently working on?
  3. How would someone you always disagree with be doing your current task?
  5. Who's the best person to offer a new perspective on your current predicament?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Attitude Factor 3F? (Focus on the Solution -- Not the Problem.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (3F rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who believes a problem is only temporary -- until you can figure out a solution. You stay focused on what you want -- then make adjustments to ensure your desired outcome will be achieved. You spend little time assigning guilt for problems that arise -- whether your fault or someone else's. Instead, you seek a solution to the problem and try to prevent it from happening again. This allows you to maintain positive momentum even when you encounter major obstacles and delays.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you react as if every problem is bigger than you. You are inclined to take problems personally and freely assign blame. This leads to an endless stream of criticism and shame for errors. You react as if problems are going to last forever. You can stay awake all night running the same problem through your head -- visualizing the same negative outcome. By only focusing on the negatives, you are incapable of redirecting your thoughts to a plausable positive solution.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 3F more frequently?

You have more power. You handle problems quickly and effectively and then move on.

You accumulate performance positives like "Unstoppable, Undaunted and Indomitable" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 3F?

You have less power. You stay stuck in problems, obsessed by what's gone wrong.

Negatives like "Indecisive, Overwhelmed and Defeated" 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...
