"Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success."

Before You Go ... Is There Anything You've Forgotten?
When you set out on a long road trip, you plan your route in advance. You consult a map, you take into account mileage, gas, weather and the condition of your car.
It's no different with a goal -- or your life for that matter. Plan your route in advance, and see how smoothly you'll get where you want to go!
The more detailed the plan, the easier the trip.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Make Plans Color: Write Complete Action Plans for Major Goals.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Is today's map detailed enough to keep you on the proper road all day?
- What elements must you consider about the transportation system you're using to reach your goal?
- Are you willing to give as much time to planning the rest of your life as you'd give to planning your next vacation?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Make Plans Factor 5A? (Write Complete Action Plans for Major Goals.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (5A rated 8 or better) suggests you have both a goal and a plan. You're inspired enough to have goals -- and methodical enough to develop written plans. With a detailed plan in hand, you're already halfway there. You've overcome the fear and uncertainty of not knowing what to do next, and have a clear set of directives with an excellent chance of success. With a detailed written plan in hand, you proceed confidently toward each of your major goals.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone whose goals often remain nothing but illusive wishes. You rarely make the progress you'd like. It may not be from lack of effort. You are working hard but too much time is spent on activities that prove to be of little benefit. Lacking specific instructions, you have neither a clear direction for what to do next, nor any way to chart your progress. Sure, some goals are being achieved by trial and error -- but many aren't -- and more are taking far longer to achieve than they should.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 5A more frequently?
You have more power. You have realistic goals, because you have real plans.
You accumulate performance positives like "Well-Planned, Well-Prepared and Informed" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 5A?
You have less power. Many of your most cherished goals are begging for better results.
Negatives like "Haphazard, Shortsighted and Unprepared" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
