"Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you." ~ Carl Sandburg

Can You Identify The Piece's Parts?

The "Monster Job" is never a monolithic mass. It's made up of many smaller jobs. To get started, find one of those smaller parts and work it for 5 minutes. Soon, the "Monster Job" will be cut down to size.

You will always produce better results, personally and professionally, when you break large tasks into a sequence of immediately "do-able" actions. When seen in their entirety, complex projects appear too overwhelming. However, even the most complex task is only a sequence of smaller, "do-able" steps that can be taken one at a time. Isolate the individual steps, and begin them right away.

Sir Edmund Hilary didn't conquer Everest with a single Herculean bound. He made it to the top one small step at a time.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Which Monster Jobs do you have hanging over your head?
  3. Look at your "Monster Job". Can you identify one part that you could get started on immediately?
  5. When, today, could you schedule in 5 minutes just to get started on the first step of your Monster Job?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Act Now Factor 10C? (Simplify The Complex to Immediately "Do-Able" Steps.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (10C rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who gains immediate control over complex tasks by seeing them as a series of simple steps. You work your way through big projects by reducing them to manageable tasks. Rather than focus on the complexity of the interrelated objectives, you break each task down into its most basic parts -- and get started right away. This process gives you the confidence to take on the impossible, because you know that success is as simple as completing one "do-able" step at a time.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you may have trouble taking action on complex projects. You may become easily confused by complex tasks and the apparent difficulty in achieving them. By only seeing the big picture -- in all its complexity -- you tend to lose confidence in your ability to accomplish such a formidable endeavor. Instead of breaking these tasks into individual steps, you remain mystified by the entire process -- and delay indefinitely from taking that all important first step.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 10C more frequently?

You have more power. By reducing a complex task to a series of simple steps, you go from overwhelmed to full speed ahead in nothing flat.

You accumulate performance positives like "Self-Initiated, Systematic and Adept" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 10C?

You have less power. Overwhelmed equals inert and incompetent.

Negatives like "Overwhelmed, Mystified and Doubtful" 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...
