Become Well-Informed — Eliminate Narrow-Minded!

Improve TQ Make Plans Factor 5C...

"I review my options to make an informed decision before finalizing any plan."

Your first idea may not always be the best idea. Nonetheless, it's the only one you can act on if you fail to come up with better alternatives. You minimize mistakes and create better results by carefully considering your options in advance. Explore additional possibilities before you reach a conclusion. Consider other perspectives: consult expert opinions; test your options; do a little research. Life's too short and money's too valuable to do otherwise. So, think it through, ask for help and learn to make better decisions by finding better options.

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.

"The man who gets the most satisfactory results is not always the man with the most brilliant single mind, but rather the man who can best coordinate the brains and talents of his associates." ~ W. Alton Jones

TQ Factor 5C "Thin Line"...

Well-Informed vs. Narrow-Minded is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 5C 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 Well-Informed... and a little LESS Narrow-Minded?

TQ Factor 5C CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are intelligent enough to create a plan, and smart enough to know there may be better alternatives. You begin your plan of action by identifying the most ideal outcome -- not just an acceptable one. To do this, you ask the advice of others and investigate alternative directions, methods or suggestions before fully committing to a plan of action. Once you have carefully considered the pros and cons, you immediately proceed with the option that provides the greatest chance of success.

TQ Factor 5C COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you rarely investigate your alternatives. You hesitate to seek advice from peers, and rarely call on experts who have the experience needed. Instead, you tend to operate from habit, shoot from the hip and go with the first solution found. Only after you complete your work, do you step back and take a fresh look. Only then do you discover that what you just finished -- is far less than what you could have done -- with some "informed alternatives."

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

You achieve better results by choosing the best alternatives before proceeding. You accumulate performance positives like "Well-Informed, Conscientious and Open-Minded" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

You produce less than ideal results when you fail to investigate your options. Negatives like "Narrow-Minded, Uninformed and Habit-Driven" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Yesterdays don't matter..."

You are 100% correct. What was good enough to get me by last year doesn't have a snow-balls chance this year. I have to do things differently -- just to keep pace. The Power of TQ truly opened my eyes to my current limitations and my ultimate potential. I am ever so grateful.
