Don't I Know You?

Create a file for every person you meet even if all you have is a name, title or phone number. This will give you one convenient place to keep new, relevant information on each person as you collect it.

Create a unique place for everything, and you'll always know where to find it. It takes less time to put something away than it does to look for it. Create a file -- a folder, a database, a labeled shoe box, a filing cabinet, a separate drawer, a duffel bag, a tool box -- for every person, project, role or client. This will give you one convenient place to locate all relevant materials or information as you need it. Keep it simple. Keep it separate. Keep it up.

Use your people files to keep any notes, info or questions you need to discuss with this person the next time you talk with him or her.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Organize Color: Create a Unique Place for Everything.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Who have you met for the first time recently?
  3. Would it be helpful to have a folder of information in front of you the next time you call someone back?
  5. Where do you keep all of the questions you need to ask next of your largest supplier?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Organize Factor 8G? (Create a Unique Place for Everything.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (8G rated 8 or better) suggests you know where to find everything. Now that you organize all your materials in separate containers, you're proud of how easily you can find exactly what you need when you need it. For example, everything associated with a new client is in a clearly marked file. This skill has become so routine, that you have to remind yourself to be more patient with others (who are usually missing one thing or another.)

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you're someone who wastes a lot of time looking for lost stuff. You are often on to something new before you take the time to put things away. Then valuable time is wasted tracking down all the missing pieces -- like a client's cell phone number, automobile and travel receipts needed to finish your taxes or the little screws you took out last week that hold the doohicky to the thingamajig to make your printer work. Not only are YOU frustrated -- but you frustrate the "living stuffin" out of others as well!

What happens when you do TQ Factor 8G more frequently?

You have more power. You waste no time locating important pieces of information.

You accumulate performance positives like "Orderly, Expedient and Tidy" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 8G?

You have less power. On average, you spend 20 minutes a day -- 122 hours a year -- searching for something you misplaced.

Negatives like "Disorderly, Messy and Careless" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Yesterdays don't matter..."

You are 100% correct. What was good enough to get me by last year doesn't have a snow-balls chance this year. I have to do things differently -- just to keep pace. The Power of TQ truly opened my eyes to my current limitations and my ultimate potential. I am ever so grateful.
