Smaller next actions can mean bigger progress

By Kelly Forrister

If you are finding that long next actions often go stale, break them into even smaller chunks—even if the smaller ones seem microscopic at times.  For example, instead of “Read Chapter 5,” try “Read pages 10-20 of Chapter 5,” or something like that. Smaller actions can also give you a sense of completion with what you are getting done, when you mark them complete. Then go ahead and add the next action after that to your list—perhaps with slightly different language to keep it visually fresh and appealing.
