What’s Your Action Plan?

At the end of each week, you’ll be reminded to think about what you can DO in response to what you’ve just learnt. You can record these actions in your notes in the table (you can download the Notes doc in step 1.7).

When you’ve identified three things to DO, work out where are the situations where you will do those actions. For example, your action might be to make an Instagram post, and the situation could be the next time you open Instagram.

You’re MUCH more likely to follow through with the action if you can identify the situation for when you’re going to do it.

Here’s some ideas for possible actions and situations.

  • People – someone to contact or connect with

  • Calendar – meeting to book

  • Research – something you’d like to know more about

  • Finalise – something you need to finish

  • Get going – something you need to start
