Often when we create action plans we make a lot of mistakes and as a result we get cumbersome and unclear plan that cause completely demotivating effect. To avoid this situation you need to examine your action plan according to the following tips. First of all you need to make sure that all steps in your action plan start with action verb. In this way you will better feel what you actually should do on this step and "active" name will stimulate you to act! For example it is better to use name such as "Step 1: Go to cafeteria to buy a dinner", instead of "Step 1: Dinner-time". Also avoid long sentences. Then make sure that you don't go into too many details. Avoid breaking down your plan into micro-actions that are not really essential. Include into your action list only tasks that are directly connected to goal-achievement. Next you should ensure that your tasks are specific and short enough - tasks should not be too complex and long. If you have such tasks consider breaking them down into more specific and clear actions.
