Arnold Collado, I agreed pretty much with what you stated until I got to the act part where you state,"start planning after which do the right things and do things right."
I don't see actions as right or wrong in this process.
Sure one acts by moving forward on the plan and then re-evaluate to keep making it better. Like in science, it's all about the process of improving and discovering through trial and error, not right and wrong.
