"Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity."

Are You On Schedule For Today?
Adhere to your own deadlines. You can overcome indecision and procrastination by setting realistic, self-imposed deadlines.
To achieve this week's goals, set a deadline -- not just for the end, but also for each incremental step to keep the project moving along.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Act Now Color: Persist Until Actual Results Meet or Exceed Expectations.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Which items on your list of things to get done don't have deadlines?
- What's one thing that keeps you from meeting your own deadlines?
- What's one simple deadline you can set and meet for yourself today?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Act Now Factor 10I? (Persist Until Actual Results Meet or Exceed Expectations.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (10I rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who can be counted on to consistantly finish each project you start. You are committed to seeing things through to the end, and determined to maintain the momentum on each project. You feel pride in the completion of your projects. You are rewarded by the achievement of every goal. With only a few projects currently incomplete, you're free to set new goals -- knowing that you have the time and the ability to devote to each one immediately.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who typically loses interest, focus or faith before you get to the end of a project. What is it with all these unfinished projects? You get started; you make progress; but then -- they never get done. You move on to something else instead. Is it a lack of interest -- or is there nothing left but the hardest parts? Do you lack confidence -- or are you afraid of success? Whatever the cause, it may be easier or more fun to go on to the next thing. It's not necessarily more rewarding -- but it is easier at the moment.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 10I more frequently?
You have more power. Projects get completed. Goals are reached. Rewards are happily collected.
You accumulate performance positives like "Tenacious, Competent and Prolific" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 10I?
You have less power. Projects that are left incomplete are goals not reached.
Negatives like "Undependable, Capricious and Uninspired" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
