Use the TIC TOC – You don’t stop strategy to train yourself to finish what you start. The acronym provides the steps necessary to achieve success.
To help you stay on track with your plan of action, you can ask yourself the questions pertaining to the TIC TOC – You Don’t Stop strategy for self-management:
The TIC TOC – You Don’t Stop strategy is a skill that every coach, leader, or instructor of the Martial Science is expected to master and implement. This is also a strategy I teach as a management consultant. It can be applied to all areas of your life.
TIC TOC is an acronym:
Training – Intuition – Creativity
Timing – Organization – Completion
The TIC is what you do to prepare for any task or goal. You must train, intuit what you’ll need to do, be creative about how you do it, and then you TOC – meaning you must have the correct timing, be organized, and complete what you start. And as stated above, YOU DON’T STOP. You must always TIC and you must always TOC.
The Clock is Ticking
When filling out the plan of action section of your map, simply answer, “What can you do to TIC TOC?”
What can I do to train for my goal?
What do I need to be intuitive (aware) of?
What type of creative attitude do I need?
What schedule should I set for myself?
What do I need to prepare and stay organized?
What is my deadline and when do I plan to finish?
Naturally your questions will change according to your goals and/or the projects you are working on. For more details on the “TIC TOC, you don’t stop” strategy you can refer to my book of the same name. You can also use this section in the evening to prepare for the next day.
