Become Predetermined — Eliminate Impulsive!

Improve TQ Prioritize Factor 6G...

"I prioritize my daily list of things to do by what's most important and rewarding -- well before I start."

A prioritized list of things to do today is your best guide for where you should invest your time. Some of your projects have more value than others. You don't always have time to complete everything on your to-do list. Therefore, before you start your day, rank your entire list by the relative reward of each task. If there are any tasks still remaining at the end of the day, they should be the least important ones -- not the most important.

Remember, 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.

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

TQ Factor 6G "Thin Line"...

Predetermined vs. Impulsive is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 6G 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 Predetermined... and a little LESS Impulsive?

TQ Factor 6G CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are someone who prioritizes your actions well before you take them. Before plunging into your first task, you prioritize the relative value of each item on your to-do list. You know what your goals are for the week, and how much time you have available to work them. You proactively plan your day by prioritizing all of the things you want to get done. It's a simple skill that takes little time each morning. When you're done, you know the relative value of every item on your list -- where to start --and when you expect to get finished.

TQ Factor 6G COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who doesn't know what's important -- and confuses effort with results. You start most days with nothing but a mental review of what needs to be done. You then rush to do the easiest task, or the one that appears to be the most urgent. You stay busy all day, but rarely feel truly productive. A great day for you is when you check off a long list of items and meet most of your deadlines -- regardless of their inherent value.

TQ Factor 6G BENEFIT: You have more power...

You know exactly where your time will be the most productive. You accumulate performance positives like "Predetermined, Discerning and Productive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 6G: Less Power...

Your to-do list is only a reminder system and offers no insight for where you could be the most productive. Negatives like "Impulsive, Reactive and Ineffective" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
