What's Your Joy Quotient Today?

Choose what gives you joy.

When you prioritize your life, you determine where your time will produce the most rewarding and satisfying results. Base these priorities on your personal list of values, goals and commitments. Urgency is a quality given to something requiring immediate attention -- regardless of its relative value. You can spend years chasing down one urgency after another. Or, you can focus on top priorities and ensure that what's most important to you actually shows up in your life. By choosing priorities over urgencies, you stop reacting to circumstances and start creating a life of power, passion and purpose.

Fulfillment comes from accomplishing the important, not from surviving the urgent.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Prioritize Color: Focus ONLY on What's MOST Important Each Day.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Is your life getting shorter or longer?
  3. What can you do to make moments of joy show up in your schedule today?
  5. How can you bring joy to what you are doing right now?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Prioritize Factor 6A? (Focus ONLY on What's MOST Important Each Day.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (6A rated 8 or better) suggests that you prioritize your life based on things that mean the most to you. You consistently make the right choices between the urgent -- and what's most important. You apply your life's priorities to every situation -- from how you're going to spend the day -- to those crucial decisions that determine your future. Sometimes, you choose to put what you value most on hold while responding to more demanding events. Yet, even then, you make sure time is not diverted so long that it does any permanent harm to your highest priorities.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who can lose sight of what's most important. Your life is often not as satisfying as you would like. Urgencies tend to rule your day, and it may feel like there's never enough time to do the things that are the most meaningful to you. Long-term goals are consistently delayed, as you attend to more urgent demands in your life. You also tend to put off your favorite dreams indefinitely, while chasing down easier or more immediate payoffs.

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

You have more power. Your performance and your ultimate results are gratifying and fulfilling.

You accumulate performance positives like "Fulfilled, Self-Directed and Satisfied" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

You have less power. What's most important and dearest to your heart gets sacrificed every day to more urgent concerns.

Negatives like "Reactive, Unguided and Uninspired" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"You should call this the Survival Edge..."

I've taken a dozen time management courses and read 20 books on improving my time management and organization skills. This goes WAY beyond anything I could ever hope for. It gave me a serious edge when I came up for my last job review, not to mention the confidence I now have.
