Become Selective — Eliminate Habitual!

Improve TQ Prioritize Factor 6B...

"I preview all my goals and choose the most important ones to focus on each week."

You can't work on all of your goals at the same time. However, you can remain accountable to all of them by reviewing each one -- at least once a week. Compare how important and time-sensitive each goal is to the others. Then make a deliberate choice for what you will work on, and what must wait until later. By proactively selecting your most important objectives, you establish priorities for the week -- and a clear purpose for your next seven days.

Remember, PRIORITIZE is the sixth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because even though you want to complete every step of every plan, you can't complete them all at the same time.

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

"To will is to select a goal, determine a course of action that will bring one to that goal, and then hold to that action until the goal is reached. The key is action." ~ Michael Hanson

TQ Factor 6B "Thin Line"...

Selective vs. Habitual is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 6B 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

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 Selective... and a little LESS Habitual?

TQ Factor 6B CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are someone who never loses sight of what you want to accomplish each week. By periodically reviewing the goals for every area of your life, you make sure that none vanish from view, or suffer from lack of attention. You know that you can't work on all of your goals simultaneously. Therefore, you select those that win out in both priority and urgency for the week. Realizing that each of your other goals are clamoring for their turn next, you are highly motivated to complete this week's goals so that you can move other long term goals closer into view.

TQ Factor 6B COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are too busy reacting to immediate demands to focus on what you really want. There was the book you were going to write, the garden you were going to plant and the new sales territory you were going to open. But who can think of these things when there's so much to be done right now? Weeks fly by in a flash, and they all begin to look the same. With a short sighted, day-by-day view on what needs to get done next, you rarely find the extra time to work on those special projects -- and entire parts of your life disappear from view.

TQ Factor 6B BENEFIT: You have more power...

You have a self-initiated purpose and a goal to achieve each week. You accumulate performance positives like "Selective, Fulfilled and Deliberate" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 6B: Less Power...

Many important areas of your life never get the attention they deserve. Negatives like "Habitual, Unthinking and Negligent" 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...
