Become Detailed — Eliminate Ambiguous!

Improve TQ Make Plans Factor 5D...

"I write my plans with defined steps that lead to specific, major objectives."

Every goal -- regardless of how complex or difficult -- is nothing more than a series of steps that must be completed along a path, from one objective to another. A written plan includes all of the critical objectives that must be met to be successful. It also provides the step-by-step instructions for the actions that must be taken, and the resources that must be available, to reach each objective. With a clear set of instructions, you can go anywhere and achieve anything you want -- one "do-able" step at a time.

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 5D "Thin Line"...

Detailed vs. Ambiguous is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 5D 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 Detailed... and a little LESS Ambiguous?

TQ Factor 5D CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are well-prepared and highly productive at whatever you set out to do. You are capable of reaching almost any destination you desire, because you have the ability to write a specific set of instructions for how to get there. With a carefully crafted plan, you take on things that others would consider impossible. Your confidence to proceed comes from your basic skill of identifying "do-able" steps to get from one major objective to another. With a fully detailed map in hand, the key to your success is following your own instructions -- step-by-step.

TQ Factor 5D COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you may know where you want to go but you have no idea how to proceed. Your progress toward each of your goals is slower than you'd like. By not thinking through the best route in advance, you are often delayed as you stop to reconsider the next move. This "making-it-up-on-the-fly" routine causes you to take numerous wrong turns, and forces you to retrace many of your steps. Every time you feel lost, you lose a little of the hope that you'll ultimately succeed -- and any hope that you'll actually arrive on time.

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

Your most difficult goals are simplified to a series of single steps leading in one direction. You accumulate performance positives like "Detailed, Thorough and Deliberate" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

It takes a lot longer to get where you want to go because you haven't prepared a detailed map in advance. Negatives like "Ambiguous, Uncertain and Indefinite" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
