Become Action-oriented — Eliminate Procrastinating!

Improve TQ Act Now Factor 10A...

"I take immediate action on whatever's next without procrastinating."

Personal power is measured by your ability to take action. Power is a function of how fast you can take an idea and make it a reality. The more proactive you are, the more productive you will be. Until an action is taken, nothing happens, and nothing is created. Think in terms of consequences. If you choose to delay an action, what will you gain? What will it cost you? When you act without delay, you immediately increase productivity and accelerate success.

Remember, ACT NOW is the tenth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because nothing gets done without first getting started.

You CAN achieve your greatest dreams and aspirations. Simply improve your TQ Act Now Color.

TQ Factor 10A "Thin Line"...

Action-oriented vs. Procrastinating is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 10A more often, and the following POSITIVE characteristics will automatically begin to accumulate and flow into to your performance—moving you TOWARDS the results you want and the success you desire.

Positives     Negatives
 
Action-oriented
Dynamic
Industrious
Prolific
Spontaneous
Persistent
    Procrastinating
Hesitant
Unmotivated
Lazy
Timid
Tentative
 

Choose to take this action infrequently, or not at all, and the opposing NEGATIVE traits will dominate your performance and sabotaging your success... moving you AWAY from achieving your goals and aspirations.

Think about it. How much more successful would you be if you were a little MORE Action-oriented... and a little LESS Procrastinating?

TQ Factor 10A CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are someone who would rather take action and make things happen, than sit around and worry about what could happen. Your motto is "Carpe diem -- seize the day." As soon as you realize something needs to get done, you act without hesitation. Once you have created a prioritized to-do list, you start at the top and don't stop until every item is checked off. By combining this skill, with the ability to target valuable objectives and create detailed plans, you have become so productive it's a little bit scary. But, isn't it fun.

TQ Factor 10A COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who spends as much time and effort avoiding work as others who get everything done. With a motto of "but what ifÉ" you pause before taking action. Too often a brief pause becomes a pregnant pause that gives birth to an internal argument that keeps you from taking any action at all. Whenever you "over-analyze" and spend too much time preparing to get ready, you waste valuable time and energy that could be used to move your plans ahead instead.

TQ Factor 10A BENEFIT: You have more power...

Perpetual action produces an amazing number of highly rewarding results. You accumulate performance positives like "Action-oriented, Dynamic and Industrious" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 10A: Less Power...

Every time you procrastinate, you waste valuable time and miss a chance to move ahead. Negatives like "Procrastinating, Hesitant and Unmotivated" 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...
