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

If You Don'tT Have The Time To Do It Right . . . .
To make the best use of your time, do it right the first time. "It takes less time to do something right than to do it over."
"Good enough for now" can cost you more today than "Take the time to do it right."
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Optimize Color: Make Every Minute Matter.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Are you willing to increase the value of every step by doing your best the first time?
- Does an attitude of "It'll do for now" really save you time in the long run?
- Before you complete the task you're working on, ask yourself, "Can I improve on this in some way?"
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
A high commitment (9B rated 8 or better) 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.
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.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 9B more frequently?
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.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 9B?
You have 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.
