"The reality of life is that your perceptions -- right or wrong -- influence everything else you do. When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place." ~ Roger Birkman

Carts And Horses, You Know.

Finish first things first. Proceed as far as you can with your highest priority project before you move on to the next.

Nothing will increase your progress more than completing your most productive, most rewarding task of the day. Once you have prioritized your to-do list, focus on your Number One item first. Do it first or schedule it for a time that provides the best chance of its being completed correctly. When you perform your tasks by rank of importance, you spend time on those items you predict will be the most valuable -- well before giving away your limited time to less important tasks.

Focus and finish. Focus and finish. Focus and finish!

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Prioritize Color: Focus on Top Priority -- First.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Has your work day matched your priority list so far?
  3. What else could be done on your Priority Number One today?
  5. What's one more thing you could accomplish on your highest remaining priority today?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Prioritize Factor 6H? (Focus on Top Priority -- First.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (6H rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone whose #1 responsibility is to make sure your #1 priority gets done every day. You consistently do whatever it takes to guarantee that your daily #1 priority is complete, well before the day is over. If you can't do it first, you make sure that everything is in place to do it later. Regardless of what else does or doesn't get done, you finish each day satisfied that your #1 objective was achieved. Your momentum builds with each day's progress, and your confidence grows when you consistently accomplish your highest rated objectives.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you may never get to your # 1 priority because you easily get diverted by minor tasks instead. There are times when you don't identify which of your tasks is your most rewarding of the day. Many times, it takes you longer than expected to finish tasks previously started -- before you even get to start on your # 1 priority. There are other times when you don't feel like doing your # 1 priority first, and choose other tasks to complete instead. Many times, your number one never gets done at all. You feel cheated, because you traded the only day of its kind on things of limited value to you.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 6H more frequently?

You have more power. Every day is a profitable investment of time, because your largest payoff gets cashed in first.

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

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 6H?

You have less power. You waste time on minor tasks that would have been more productively spent on major ones.

Negatives like "Unfocused, Lackadaisical and Misguided" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
