Become Proactive — Eliminate Over-Analytical!

Improve TQ Act Now Factor 10G...

"I take some action to test or implement new plans as soon as they're proposed."

Making a plan is never enough. You must take action. You can modify your plan as you go, but success depends on your ability to put your plans into action! Stop getting ready to get ready. Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% experimentation. Don't wait until the last detail has been determined. Start by putting your plans into action immediately. Test. Observe. Correct. Repeat until you succeed.

Remember, ACT NOW is the tenth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because nothing gets done without first getting started.

You CAN achieve your greatest dreams and aspirations. Simply improve your TQ Act Now Color.

TQ Factor 10G "Thin Line"...

Proactive vs. Over-Analytical is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 10G more often, and the following POSITIVE characteristics will automatically begin to accumulate and flow into to your performance—moving you TOWARDS the results you want and the success you desire.

Positives     Negatives

Choose to take this action infrequently, or not at all, and the opposing NEGATIVE traits will dominate your performance and sabotaging your success... moving you AWAY from achieving your goals and aspirations.

Think about it. How much more successful would you be if you were a little MORE Proactive... and a little LESS Over-Analytical?

TQ Factor 10G CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you take some action the same day your plan is created. You immediately test each element of a proposed plan in the real world -- rather than blindly guessing how things will turn out. This avoids hours of theoretical debate about what may or may not happen. The results of your trials confirms the direction to go. It also allows you to correct course before fully committing to the wrong plan -- and spending time on something that has no chance of success as originally envisioned.

TQ Factor 10G COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you may never get to the action part of your plan. You continually delay implementing a plan because you're not sure which direction will guarantee success. You can deliberate the possible outcomes for days on end, and never make any real progress. You spend hours trying to arrive at your best guess, but never think to test your theories, and let the real world tell you which is correct.

TQ Factor 10G BENEFIT: You have more power...

Your plans are successful, because they're first tested, then perfected. You accumulate performance positives like "Proactive, Enterprising and Experimental" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 10G: Less Power...

Some of your plans never get off the paper they're written on. Negatives like "Over-Analytical, Indecisive and Doubtful" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Worth 1000 Times the price paid..."

Been there... done that... and I'm not easily impressed. I've purchased thousands of dollars of books, seminars, video tapes, and an assortment of training aids that would fill a garage. Never have I been so impressed before. Simple, straight-forward and very structured. This is the LAST program I will ever need to take! I wish it would have been my FIRST...
