Become Optimized — Eliminate Ineffective!

Improve TQ Make Plans Factor 5H...

"I schedule my day around my most productive time periods."

No one is at their best all the time. Study your daily performance and discover when you tend to be the most and least productive. Schedule your top priorities for when you are at your mental and physical peak. Assign the rest for less energetic periods. Don't try to take on your toughest tasks when you're only capable of running at half speed. And don't waste your prime hours on your least productive chores.

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.

"A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug." ~ Patricia Neal

TQ Factor 5H "Thin Line"...

Optimized vs. Ineffective is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 5H 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 Optimized... and a little LESS Ineffective?

TQ Factor 5H CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are careful to match your activities to your energy cycles and personal work styles. You schedule your most demanding tasks for times when you are more energetic, and your least demanding tasks for those times when your energy is low. Matching your energy and moods to the tasks at hand allows you to be at your best when you need it the most. This allows you to "go with the flow," and achieve maximum productivity -- all day long.

TQ Factor 5H COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests there are too many times when you just don't feel like doing what's next on your schedule. Your schedule is in constant conflict between what you're supposed to do and what you feel like doing. Even when you have the option to schedule your own work, you fail to consider personal energy cycles. For example, you might zoom through minor routines with energy to spare, but then burn out before getting to your more important tasks.

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

You're in the game and at your best when it counts the most. You accumulate performance positives like "Optimized, Practical and Effective" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

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

You're not in the right time frame or frame of mind for the task at hand. Negatives like "Ineffective, Inconsistent and Unproductive" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
