"The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them." ~ George Bernard Shaw

Are You Trying To Control The Whole World?

Being responsible for your time doesn't mean being able to control all the events in your life. It means being able to respond to those events in a way that is most productive.

You are responsible for where you are right now. This doesn't mean you caused everything that's happened to you prior to this point in time. But in each moment, you can choose how you're going to react and what you are going to do from this moment forward. If your attitude, actions or situations are not what you want, take charge and change them. Don't be a victim of your circumstances. By taking full responsibility for your actions, you retain the power to make the best of your circumstances -- before the day is done.

Be Response--Able! Make the best use of your available time today.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Attitude Color: Take Full Responsibility for How Your Day Works Out.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. When was the last time your spontaneous response to an unexpected event caused you to lose valuable time?
  3. What preferred response could you now choose to make this day more effective?
  5. What alternative response can you use today to deal with a situation that usually causes you to lose time?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Attitude Factor 3A? (Take Full Responsibility for How Your Day Works Out.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (3A rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who takes responsibility for how things turn out. You take charge of your day, and waste little time complaining to others when things don't go as planned. You power through the best and worst of circumstances. You take full responsibility for where you are at each moment, and for what you're going to do next. Rarely do you stay stuck in a bad situation. Instead, you stay focused on your goals, and do whatever you can to make them real. Each day, you become victorious over circumstances.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who surrenders easily to your current circumstances. You are willing to push forward when things go well, but then pull back during difficult times. By focusing on a negative situation, or the power others have over you, you forfeit your power to initiate an improvement to the status quo. Rather than pursue new options, you generally stop to criticize and complain. You seek out people who will agree that it's something or someone else's fault -- and there's nothing that can be done about it. Each day, you become the victim.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 3A more frequently?

You have more power. If there is something you want, you don't wait for fate. You act to make it happen.

You accumulate performance positives like "Responsible, Empowered and Accountable" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 3A?

You have less power. You relinquish all power to make a difference when you give up personal responsibility.

Negatives like "Irresponsible, Powerless and Unaccountable" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
