I’m not much of a hard copy book reader, but I’ve had this amazing book called the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People sitting on my shelf for too long. So I decided to skim through it the other day. What I saw was knowledge worth a fortune.

Amongst the gems shared by Stephen Covey, was a 5 step checklist for creating an action plan.
Here it is:

Select three areas of improvement.

Decide the who, what, when, where, why, and how of your plans.

Utilize strengths to overcome weak areas.

Tie your action plan to weekly organizing and daily planning.

Commit to yourself to carry out your plans or tasks.
