You've Only Got 2 Hands And 1000 Minutes, Remember?

Don't overload yourself. Concentrate on getting the top 3 or 4 things done that you can do each day. Everything else in the day is gravy.

The only way to guarantee there will be enough time to complete your top priorities of the day is to block out a sufficient amount of time for them in advance. Do this before you schedule anything else. If you don't, your schedule will automatically fill up with everything else, and there won't be time left for high payoff activities. After you've reserved time for top priorities, you can fill in the time remaining with less productive activities.

Don't try to do everything. Preserve your time, energy and resources for what matters most, i.e., your top priority items.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Make Plans Color: Block out Time to Focus on Top Priorities Each Day.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Do you have your top 3 tasks completed yet? Are you into the bonus round?
  3. Instead of looking at what you haven't gotten done today, why not cross off what you have done and be thankful for that?
  5. Who can help you complete some of your lower priority items today?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Make Plans Factor 5G? (Block out Time to Focus on Top Priorities Each Day.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (5G rated 8 or better) suggests you tend to make steady progress on your top priorities -- every week. You continuously identify the projects and activities that will have the greatest impact on each area of your life. You then take control of your time by planning ahead and reserving blocks of time exclusively for completing those objectives. Before you start each day, you review your schedule and dedicate additional blocks of time to the top priorities you want to accomplish that day.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who can get to the end of the week with limited or no progress made towards the attainment of your goals. Time and circumstances dictate how much action you take on your top priorities each day. Every item on your to-do list, regardless of priority, is given as much time as needed to get completed -- one after another. Too often, an entire day is filled with minimally productive tasks, daily demands and constant interruptions. Only at the end of the day do you realize there's no time left for your top priority -- the most important item to complete that day.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 5G more frequently?

You have more power. Your most productive tasks are always completed before the day is done.

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

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 5G?

You have less power. Your most productive tasks are typically delayed.

Negatives like "Delayed, Frustrated and Misguided" 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.
