"The world cares very little about what a man or woman knows; it is what a man or woman is able to do that counts."

That Was How Many Of What, By When?
To remember important items after you've finished a conversation, routinely make a note of what was covered and put it in your file.
Documentation preserves your reputation and information. Make it a routine to write it down.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Organize Color: Create Efficient Routines -- Stick To Them.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- How often do you make a point of writing down important information while you talk on the phone?
- How do you look when you have to call back for information that was already given to you?
- Do you keep pen and paper close to your phones?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
A high commitment (8D rated 8 or better) suggests you habitually repeat the right actions at the right times. Every morning after your walk, your coffee perks while you shower. You then sit down for ten minutes of planning time. Far from being a slave to your routines, you create enjoyable and productive habits to guarantee the automatic completion of important tasks. By sticking to a routine, critical tasks are never put off or forgotten. Your routines reduce mistakes, stress and the time required to complete any task correctly.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who can be inconsistent in completing recurrent tasks, responsibilities and duties. Because you fail to follow carefully prepared routines that define the right way to achieve the desired result, you waste time compensating for neglected, forgotten, overlooked or ignored elements of those activities. As a result, urgencies are created that often demand your immediate attention -- urgencies that pull you away from higher payoff activities.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 8D more frequently?
You have more power. Your efficient routines guarantee positive results.
You accumulate performance positives like "Procedural, Systematic and Consistent" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 8D?
You have less power. Your actions can be random, impulsive and unpredictable.
Negatives like "Capricious, Inconsistent and Sporadic" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
