Become Industrious — Eliminate Wasteful!

Improve TQ Optimize Factor 9B...

"I make my minutes matter by eliminating time wasters whenever I find them."

There are only 1440 minutes in a day. These are the minutes you have to spend on everything you want to get done. There will never be more, no matter how great the desire or need. There can be less when some of these same minutes are wasted on things that produce nothing in return. Time doesn't care how it is used. It moves on regardless of how much progress you make from each passing minute. You can invest your time in important pursuits, achieving desirable personal rewards. Or you can squander the opportunity of a lifetime by wasting the time you have.

Remember, OPTIMIZE is the ninth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because the truth is, you already have all the time there is.

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

"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it." ~ Lou Holtz

TQ Factor 9B "Thin Line"...

Industrious vs. Wasteful is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 9B 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
 
Industrious
Focused
Pragmatic
Productive
Ambitious
Conscious
    Wasteful
Unmotivated
Lackadaisical
Slothful
Aimless
Distracted
 

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 Industrious... and a little LESS Wasteful?

TQ Factor 9B CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you rarely waste a minute on things of no value to you. You establish clear priorities for how you will use your time every day. This makes it easy to identify those things that keep you from your high-payoff activities. You never take your minutes for granted -- nor squander precious time on things that have little value. When you do find a time waster, you quickly eliminate it. This gives you more time for those activities that you care about the most.

TQ Factor 9B COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who spends time with little regard to what you get in trade. You rarely consider if you're making the best use of your time. You tend to rate your productivity based on the amount of time spent -- rather than the results accomplished -- and are rarely motivated to initiate time-saving measures. This means you can easily become distracted by even the most casual time-wasting diversions.

TQ Factor 9B BENEFIT: You have more power...

Your time is highly productive because you eliminate everything that isn't. You accumulate performance positives like "Industrious, Focused and Pragmatic" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 9B: Less Power...

Precious gems of time are wasted with little to show in return. Negatives like "Wasteful, Unmotivated and Lackadaisical" 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...
