Are Your Goals Like Oil And Water, Or Peaches And Cream?

Look for areas where your goals overlap, and devise ways to accomplish them both at the same time.

You don't have to double your speed to double your productivity. Instead, you can increase your results by combining complimentary tasks, projects or roles. Plan ahead and look for ways to maximize your time. Before you proceed, see if there is anything else you could be doing simultaneously. When you find a way to do two things in the same block of time you achieve twice the results -- with little additional effort.

Make sure your goals act like good friends - not spoiled children.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Optimize Color: Seek to Double Results -- Ask "What Else Now?"

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. Why not set goals that benefit more than one area of your life at the same time?
  3. If you could do one thing today to satisfy two goals, wouldn't you be twice as motivated?
  5. How can you combine your family goals and your exercise goals together?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Optimize Factor 9I? (Seek to Double Results -- Ask "What Else Now?") No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (9I rated 8 or better) suggests you are motivated to discover how you can conveniently complete two things instead of just one. The secret to your productivity is not running around at twice the speed of everyone else. Instead, you actually get more done by slowing down. Before you begin any task, you ask, "What else can I accomplish while I'm doing this?" You read your trade journals while flying on a business trip. You pitch your new proposal to two additional prospects while on the same trip, and finish writing all your thank you letters on your flight home.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you haven't yet learned how to maximize your time. You tend to think in terms of "What is the one thing that needs to get done now?" You rarely look for ways to combine activities and projects. For example, it may not occur to you that you could spend more time with your son by volunteering together at your favorite charity -- or that you could find a business client who likes to play chess as often as you do.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 9I more frequently?

You have more power. You double your productivity when you find ways to do two things at the same time.

You accumulate performance positives like "Prolific, Productive and Efficient" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 9I?

You have less power. It takes you twice as long to complete the same two activities when you do them one at a time.

Negatives like "Myopic, Inefficient and Linear" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
