"One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation." ~ Arthur Ashe

Is That A Promise?

It may be a push for you, but don't be afraid to make people give you their word. If you ask people outright for their commitment, you'll have a greater chance of getting what you've agreed on.

It's your responsibility to make it as easy -- and as fun as possible -- for others to help you. When you do, more people will show up, and once they arrive, will provide greater assistance than if you make it difficult. First, be clear what needs to be done. Articulate your requests with the greatest detail possible. Then, identify and eliminate any barriers that may prevent others from doing their level best to help you.

Create a unique environment, a special place in the world, where people know they can count on each other's word.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Synergize Color: Make it Easy for Others to Help.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. How often do you ask for verbal and written commitments from people?
  3. Who can you ask for a commitment on a job today?
  5. The next time you need to have something done by another person, how will you increase your odds of getting it done on time?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Synergize Factor 7F? (Make it Easy for Others to Help.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (7F rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who understands that people helping people is a two-way street. You believe that your best chance of getting the help you need is by doing everything possible to make it easy for others to help. This begins with the obvious task of identifying who could best help you and recruiting them. When you do, you're enthusiastic and your requests are clear. You organize all the materials they will need in advance. More importantly, you show genuine appreciation for everything they do -- while they're doing it -- and after it's done.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who never really gets the help you expect or need. It could be that you never ask the right people -- or that when the right people DO show up -- nothing gets done because you are so poorly organized. You may ask for too much, or maybe you don't clearly articulate what you want. Perhaps you always wait until the last minute to ask. Or maybe you never make people feel like you appreciate their assistance. The only thing you know for sure is that fewer and fewer people are now showing up when asked.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 7F more frequently?

You have more power. You get a lot of valuable help when you need it.

You accumulate performance positives like "Facilitative, Thoughtful and Considerate" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 7F?

You have less power. People rarely volunteer to help -- and almost no one helps you more than once.

Negatives like "Difficult, Thoughtless and Unappreciative" 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.
