Are You Willing To Risk The Chance?

Why leave your projects to chance? Are you really that lucky? Stack the deck by first seeing the entire process in advance. Then follow through with each critical step.

By thinking through each project -- both forwards and backwards -- you can visualize the proper sequence of events required to achieve major objective -- in the fewest number of steps possible. You can also prevent time-consuming mistakes by eliminating inappropriate steps, while including others that will be more effective and productive. When you can see what needs to be done -- well before you start -- you can remove the obstacles and bottlenecks to your progress -- well BEFORE they occur!

If you want a project with a happy ending, first visualize a happy beginning, middle and end.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Make Plans Color: Stop and Think Things Through -- BEFORE Taking Action.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. How many times today did you allow events to control you?
  3. Have you blocked time into your schedule today to deal with what is most important to you?
  5. Is tomorrow's agenda prioritized, scheduled and ready to rock and roll?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Make Plans Factor 5B? (Stop and Think Things Through -- BEFORE Taking Action.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (5B rated 8 or better) suggests you save yourself time and trouble by thinking things through before you begin. The time you spend thinking about what you're going to do -- before you actually do it -- dramatically simplifies the work you actually do later. Rather than attack a project head-on, you take time to visualize the process before you begin -- so that you can do it right the first time. By seeing in advance that step C is a critical step and has to be done before steps D, E and F, you're able to complete the entire process in the most efficient and productive way possible.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who impulsively dives into a project before making a plan. You can get started quickly on any new project, but there are times when you quickly reach a dead end. This tendency to push ahead on whatever you're doing -- without first thinking things through -- means you can complete steps D, E and F before you even realize that step C is critical to a successful outcome. As a result, you are constantly redoing your work to correct for mistakes. Projects take longer than expected, and the end results are often far less than desired.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 5B more frequently?

You have more power. You complete your projects faster when you make fewer obvious mistakes.

You accumulate performance positives like "Foresightful, Prudent and Efficient" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 5B?

You have less power. Because you don't plan ahead, you're often forced to take two steps back for every three steps forward.

Negatives like "Rash, Careless and Uninformed" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
