When tasks are written in your own handwriting, in your own idiom, they remain familiar and are more likely to be executed.
The more clear and concrete an Action Step is, the less friction you will encounter trying to do it. If an Action Step is vague or complicated, you will probably skip over it to others on your list that are more straightforward.
even when the onus to complete an Action Step has been delegated to someone else, the Action Step must still be owned—and tracked—by the person ultimately responsible.
Note: Look familiar?
