Become Resourceful — Eliminate Intimidated!

Improve TQ Act Now Factor 10B...

"I use clever and imaginative ways to get started on difficult tasks or projects."

There is no greater reward than accomplishing a difficult task. However, you can't complete a project if it never gets started. Procrastination can take a million clever forms -- but so can action. Instead of putting things off, find clever and imaginative ways to get started somewhere -- anywhere -- even for a few minutes. Take some action to get the ball rolling in the right direction.

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 10B "Thin Line"...

Resourceful vs. Intimidated is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 10B 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
 
Resourceful
Creative
Proactive
Self-Initiated
Ingenious
    Intimidated
Uncertain
Apprehensive
Unresourceful
Hesitant
Reluctant
 

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 Resourceful... and a little LESS Intimidated?

TQ Factor 10B CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you're someone who loves a challenge and invents clever ways to get things started. Knowing the difficulty of the task at hand, you immediately attempt some kind of progress as soon as possible -- even when you have no idea how it will turn out. You brainstorm different directions to get started and explore any options available. With every small bite into the project, you make some kind of progress. You build a little more momentum, gain additional information and begin to develop the final action plan for how to complete the entire project.

TQ Factor 10B COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you have trouble getting started on difficult projects. Too often when faced with a daunting project, you find it hard to start. You tend to focus on the time, effort and the difficulty involved. Unfortunately, while you are convincing yourself why it will be so hard to get started, you fail to argue the alternative. It may not occur to you to: Get more information; Ask for advice; Brainstorm possibilities; Invite others to help; Make a written plan; Do a little each day; Delegate parts to others; Organize your materials; Or find a way to make it a little more fun!

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

The more difficult the task, the sooner you start and the sooner it's done. You accumulate performance positives like "Resourceful, Creative and Proactive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

You will never make significant progress in your career until you can handle any project that comes your way. Negatives like "Intimidated, Uncertain and Apprehensive" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

We are in a brutally competitive industry and if we don't learn to sell and compete smarter, it is the difference between us getting the business or getting out of business. This gave us the edge we were looking for.
