See Any Shortcuts?
Be on the constant lookout for improvements to your established plan. Don't miss an obvious shortcut to your goal by blindly following your original plan.
A plan is a map that can be redrawn as you travel in order to take advantage of newfound circumstances and opportunities.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Make Plans Color: Work Your Plans Until You Succeed or Find a Better Way.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Still on the right road? Heard of any better roads to be on?
- Is there a more effective or efficient way to do what you're doing right now?
- What else could be done, in addition to your current plan, to accomplish your goal for this week?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Make Plans Factor 5J? (Work Your Plans Until You Succeed or Find a Better Way.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (5J rated 8 or better) suggests you are a person who can be counted on to complete your plans. You're that "one in a million" who sets a goal, makes a plan and then actually works the plan. You are methodical, with a high bias toward taking action. You continuously find a way to take the right action steps and discover the right way to proceed. When you hit a road block, you persevere until you find a way over, under, through or around the obstacle.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who has a long list of plans that have never been completed. Many plans never get off the ground, because you haven't even taken the first step. Others are in varying stages of completion -- because you have either deviated from your original goal -- or are no longer following your current plan. Few of your plans achieve the outcome you originally predicted -- and with only limited success as your reward -- you lose the motivation to draft new ones.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 5J more frequently?
You have more power. Your plans succeed because you diligently pursue each to completion.
You accumulate performance positives like "Determined, Industrious and Successful" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 5J?
You have less power. Your plans fail, because you fail to work your plans.
Negatives like "Unreliable, Distracted and Undisciplined" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
