Become Foresightful — Eliminate Rash!

Improve TQ Make Plans Factor 5B...

"I visualize the process for each new project from beginning to end, well before I start."

By thinking through each project -- both forwards and backwards -- you can visualize the proper sequence of events required to achieve major objective -- in the fewest number of steps possible. You can also prevent time-consuming mistakes by eliminating inappropriate steps, while including others that will be more effective and productive. When you can see what needs to be done -- well before you start -- you can remove the obstacles and bottlenecks to your progress -- well BEFORE they occur!

Remember, 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.

You CAN achieve your greatest dreams and aspirations. Simply improve your TQ Make Plans Color.

TQ Factor 5B "Thin Line"...

Foresightful vs. Rash is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 5B 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 Foresightful... and a little LESS Rash?

TQ Factor 5B CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you save yourself time and trouble by thinking things through before you begin. The time you spend thinking about what you're going to do -- before you actually do it -- dramatically simplifies the work you actually do later. Rather than attack a project head-on, you take time to visualize the process before you begin -- so that you can do it right the first time. By seeing in advance that step C is a critical step and has to be done before steps D, E and F, you're able to complete the entire process in the most efficient and productive way possible.

TQ Factor 5B COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who impulsively dives into a project before making a plan. You can get started quickly on any new project, but there are times when you quickly reach a dead end. This tendency to push ahead on whatever you're doing -- without first thinking things through -- means you can complete steps D, E and F before you even realize that step C is critical to a successful outcome. As a result, you are constantly redoing your work to correct for mistakes. Projects take longer than expected, and the end results are often far less than desired.

TQ Factor 5B BENEFIT: You have more power...

You complete your projects faster when you make fewer obvious mistakes. You accumulate performance positives like "Foresightful, Prudent and Efficient" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 5B: Less Power...

Because you don't plan ahead, you're often forced to take two steps back for every three steps forward. Negatives like "Rash, Careless and Uninformed" 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...
