"The man who gets the most satisfactory results is not always the man with the most brilliant single mind, but rather the man who can best coordinate the brains and talents of his associates."

Let Mikey Do It -- He'll Do Anything.
Planning is deciding. If you can't decide on which of your options to take, imagine that you don't have to do it yourself. Plan it for someone else.
First write down a plan of the best action to take, regardless of your willingness to do it. Then do your plan.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Make Plans Color: Search Beyond Acceptable -- Find the BEST Alternatives.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- If you're mired in a quandary, what would you recommend to someone else who was in your same position?
- If your plan requires tasks you don't want to tackle, how would your hero accomplish them?
- What would your competitors write down if they were preparing your plan?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Make Plans Factor 5C? (Search Beyond Acceptable -- Find the BEST Alternatives.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (5C rated 8 or better) suggests you are intelligent enough to create a plan, and smart enough to know there may be better alternatives. You begin your plan of action by identifying the most ideal outcome -- not just an acceptable one. To do this, you ask the advice of others and investigate alternative directions, methods or suggestions before fully committing to a plan of action. Once you have carefully considered the pros and cons, you immediately proceed with the option that provides the greatest chance of success.
A lack of commitment suggests you rarely investigate your alternatives. You hesitate to seek advice from peers, and rarely call on experts who have the experience needed. Instead, you tend to operate from habit, shoot from the hip and go with the first solution found. Only after you complete your work, do you step back and take a fresh look. Only then do you discover that what you just finished -- is far less than what you could have done -- with some "informed alternatives."
What happens when you do TQ Factor 5C more frequently?
You have more power. You achieve better results by choosing the best alternatives before proceeding.
You accumulate performance positives like "Well-Informed, Conscientious and Open-Minded" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 5C?
You have less power. You produce less than ideal results when you fail to investigate your options.
Negatives like "Narrow-Minded, Uninformed and Habit-Driven" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
