"Determine what specific goal you want to achieve. Then dedicate yourself to its attainment with unswerving singleness of purpose, the trenchant zeal of a crusader." ~ Paul J. Meyer


The TQ Lexicon of Success...

TQ is loosely based on the US Olympics training regimen of Self-Measurement... Self-Evaluation... and continuous Self-improvement.

To help you visualize your performance from a fresh new perspective, we created the world's first Time Prism... a simple tool that separates your overall success potential into 10 color-coded areas.

About The TQ Prioritize Color...

PRIORITIZE is the sixth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because even though you want to complete every step of every plan, you can't complete them all at the same time.

Achieving maximum personal productivity means making conscious choices, deciding what can be done now and what can wait. It's having the self discipline to eliminate everything else temporarily so you can focus on what's most important now.

When you PRIORITIZE all your actions, you'll stay focused on the most important and rewarding goals. You achieve maximum productivity by making the right choices. The goals that are both important and rewarding deserve to be focused on first.

The Ultimate Choice: Urgent or Important...

A lot of time and energy is wasted when you focus on things that really don't matter simply because they're more urgent, leaving what's most dear unattended. The key is to know exactly what you want and which role is most important to you at any point in time. Since your values, vision and mission ultimately determine the priority for each of your goals, ranking competing choices becomes natural. How?

Some goals are more important than others...

Simply compare your core values to each goal you're trying to resolve. If Goal 1 contains more key values than Goal 2 at a given point in time, it must, by definition be more important than Goal 2. The point is that your values must always be the final criteria for what's more important than something else.

While this may sound simplistic, it works. In fact, the list of values you created when drafting your mission statement is the most important list you can carry, because it ensures that you'll always choose between what matters most and what doesn't.

CHOOSING is what it means to prioritize! When you make a conscious decision that some goals are more important than others (i.e., contain more of your core values), you automatically begin to focus on those that are both the most important and rewarding. Only after you've ranked your visions and goals in order of importance can you determine exactly which action plan and related tasks will get most of your time and attention today.

Prioritizing Instantly Increases Productivity...

Once you've identified what's most important at the moment, simply select the No. 1 item within that choice that will have the highest payoff for your efforts. When you determine in advance where the greatest reward will be for the time you spend, you are prioritizing your tasks, not on the urgency of the day, but on what will profoundly help you achieve your most valuable goals. By focusing on priority No. 1 first, you control the course and events of your day and you will automatically become more productive, completing more high-payoff A's, and fewer B's and C's.

Is your Prioritize Color causing you problems?

You can tell when...

  • What's most important on your list always takes a back seat to what's most urgent.
  • You spend time only on what is the easiest or most pressing, regardless of its value.
  • You are forever running at full throttle, but your rewards never match your efforts.
  • You are constantly frustrated and feeling guilty because there's always something else you should be doing.
  • You believe there will never be enough time for what you want to do, because there's always something more urgent.
However, when your Prioritize color is strong and vibrant...
  • You understand that what's most important should always come first, and therefore, you always focus on what's most important right now.
  • Your efforts are highly rewarding because you invest your time on those activities with the highest payoff.
  • You are always on purpose and enjoying the moment, because you've determined in advance that this is exactly what you should be doing, right now.
  • You believe that what's most important should never be sacrificed for what's merely urgent.

Here's the Bottom Line...

Awareness of living what's most important is critical to getting the results you want. If you've never decided what's MOST important, you're endlessly chasing after things that SIMPLY DON'T MATTER.

Permit your Prioritize Color to hold you back, and you will struggle with the heartbreak of failed expectations. Improve it and you will succeed brilliantly.

"You should call this the Survival Edge..."

I've taken a dozen time management courses and read 20 books on improving my time management and organization skills. This goes WAY beyond anything I could ever hope for. It gave me a serious edge when I came up for my last job review, not to mention the confidence I now have.
