"Determine what specific goal you want to achieve. Then dedicate yourself to its attainment with unswerving singleness of purpose, the trenchant zeal of a crusader." ~ Paul J. Meyer

Be A Little Bit Reasonable.

Make your To Do List reasonable, not a brainstorming session gone wild. Limit your daily list to what you can reasonably hope to accomplish. If you finish early, make a new list.

Maximum personal productivity is entirely dependent upon how quickly you can go from a concept to a completion. To be as productive as possible, you must have an organized system for keeping track of all data, dates, numbers, people, goals, plans and to-do's. You need a single system that helps plan this entire flow of detail -- from idea to implementation to completion in the least amount of time -- without losing anything through the cracks -- or driving you crazy in the process.

Trim today's To Do List as necessary to keep from being overwhelmed and disregarding it all.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Make Plans Color: Make Planning a Routine Part of Each Day.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. What are the 5 top items that you would like to get done today?
  2.  
     
  3. If your list is too lengthy, can you break it into a morning list and an afternoon list?
  4.  
     
  5. Take a realistic look at your list today. Does anything need to be rescheduled for tomorrow?
  6.

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Make Plans Factor 5F? (Make Planning a Routine Part of Each Day.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (5F rated 8 or better) suggests you're highly organized and very productive. You're a master at checking off tasks, one-by-one, and never lose track of important details. You have instant access to all the dates and details in your immediate future, and a single list that contains all the things you want to get done. Your calendar provides a clear view of short and long-term goals. Each morning begins with a careful review and a systematic selection of the items you will complete that day. Each day ends with the satisfaction that a multitude of tasks have been successfully completed and major progress has been made overall.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests there's "no method to your madness." Your list of things to do is often chaotic, disorganized and rarely complete. Notes and reminders tend to be scattered everywhere, and you have to check for appointments in two or three different places. With no comprehensive process in place, you lack both the far-sighted vision of what you want to get done, and the near-sighted view of what needs to be done now. Each day is somewhere between busy and frantic -- and you wonder if you're really making any progress at all.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 5F more frequently?

You have more power. You have a simple, yet thorough, system for planning all your projects and tasks.

You accumulate performance positives like "Methodical, Competent and Systematic" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 5F?

You have less power. Things get lost, misplaced, delayed and forgotten -- most of the time.

Negatives like "Inconsistent, Chaotic and Scattered" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"You should call this the Survival Edge..."

I've taken a dozen time management courses and read 20 books on improving my time management and organization skills. This goes WAY beyond anything I could ever hope for. It gave me a serious edge when I came up for my last job review, not to mention the confidence I now have.
