Become Productive — Eliminate Delayed!

Improve TQ Make Plans Factor 5G...

"I block out time in my schedule to focus on my top priority for each day."

The only way to guarantee there will be enough time to complete your top priorities of the day is to block out a sufficient amount of time for them in advance. Do this before you schedule anything else. If you don't, your schedule will automatically fill up with everything else, and there won't be time left for high payoff activities. After you've reserved time for top priorities, you can fill in the time remaining with less productive activities.

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 5G "Thin Line"...

Productive vs. Delayed is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 5G 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 Productive... and a little LESS Delayed?

TQ Factor 5G CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you tend to make steady progress on your top priorities -- every week. You continuously identify the projects and activities that will have the greatest impact on each area of your life. You then take control of your time by planning ahead and reserving blocks of time exclusively for completing those objectives. Before you start each day, you review your schedule and dedicate additional blocks of time to the top priorities you want to accomplish that day.

TQ Factor 5G COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who can get to the end of the week with limited or no progress made towards the attainment of your goals. Time and circumstances dictate how much action you take on your top priorities each day. Every item on your to-do list, regardless of priority, is given as much time as needed to get completed -- one after another. Too often, an entire day is filled with minimally productive tasks, daily demands and constant interruptions. Only at the end of the day do you realize there's no time left for your top priority -- the most important item to complete that day.

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

Your most productive tasks are always completed before the day is done. You accumulate performance positives like "Productive, Focused and Rewarded" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

Your most productive tasks are typically delayed. Negatives like "Delayed, Frustrated and Misguided" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
