"Few people have any next, they live from hand to mouth without a plan, and are always at the end of their line."~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


The TQ Lexicon of Success...

TQ is loosely based on the US Olympics training regimen of Self-Measurement... Self-Evaluation... and continuous Self-improvement.

To help you visualize your performance from a fresh new perspective, we created the world's first Time Prism... a simple tool that separates your overall success potential into 10 color-coded areas.

About The TQ Make Plans Color...

MAKE PLANS is the fifth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because a goal without a plan is merely a wish without a hope.

Once you've set a specific goal, you must immediately develop a detailed plan for its accomplishment. You are most productive when you prepare ahead of time for exactly how and when you're going to take each and every step-before you actually take them. When you eliminate wasted steps, your productivity instantly and automatically soars!

You map the shortest route from conception to realization of your goals when you MAKE detailed PLANS. Every goal is accomplished in the shortest time possible when you eliminate wasted steps by planning ahead.

From where you ARE, to where you want to GO...

A plan is simply a map which details the precise outline of steps necessary to get from where you are, to where you're going, as quickly and easily as possible. When you map future steps, you think things through, starting at the end and working backwards or from top to bottom, taking it one step at a time. A successful plan, however, requires you to anchor it in both directions with what comes first, what comes last, and lots of "What comes next?" in between. It needs to be only as elaborate as required to lead you from Point A to Point B while taking the fewest possible steps.

Dreams Snared-Fantasies Caught...

Making detailed plans is where dreams are snared and fantasies are caught. When you take the time to think ahead, any project- regardless of how complex or difficult-becomes nothing more than a series of future steps leading to a desired objective. These objectives, when completed, will then take you anywhere you want to go.


Don't forget! Once a plan is created, it still remains to be completed. To achieve your goals, you must commit to your plan with focus and purpose. Each step outlined in your action plan must be completed. By scheduling an actual step of your plan into a specific day, you create the pressure and the opportunity to take that step toward its successful completion. The place and time where your To Do List and your schedule meet is the magical point where your goal becomes an action, and a part of your dream is achieved.

Here's the Bottom Line...

Awareness of the importance of making plans is critical to getting the results you want. If you don't have a plan for getting where you want to go, you're going to spend a lot of time stuck in places you have no interest or business being in. However, when you plan ahead, you get more of the results you expect-with fewer wasted steps.

Is your Make Plans Color causing you problems?

You can tell when...

  • You have no control over your day. Circumstances and demands happen to you, not by you.
  • You rush into projects, but soon become permanently waylaid by unexpected roadblocks.
  • You have many places you'd like to go but no clue how to get there.
  • Each day resembles the last as you move in random directions for no specific reason.
  • You believe that the future is out of your control, and you're better off getting by, one day at a time.
However, when your Make Plans Color is strong and vibrant...
  • You're in control over what gets done and when.
  • Events unfold as predicted, according to your well-defined plan.
  • You know you can get anywhere by simply following the right map, and each day accomplishes a specific step on the journey to your next objective.
  • You believe that the future is in your control, and you are busy mapping future steps to an ideal life.

Here's the Bottom Line...

Awareness of living what's most important is critical to getting the results you want. If you've never decided what's MOST important, you're endlessly chasing after things that SIMPLY DON'T MATTER.

Permit your Make Plans Color to hold you back, and you will struggle with the heartbreak of failed expectations. Improve it and you will succeed brilliantly.

"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.
