The forerunner to achieve success and obtain productive interaction results, through SMART actions and a SMARTER habit, ACT is an abbreviation that represents the synchronized believes and attitude necessary for such activities. ACT reflects the following...
  • Acknowledge feelings and the facts of the situation. FOR EXAMPLE "I am feeling frustrated", "I feel disappointed" and "It is the way it is: S/he isn't interacting or communication in an acceptable manner", refrain from presumptions such as s/he is unwilling or unable to interact in healthy ways (see interaction hurdle 2 for a more detailed explanation).
  • Consider the available choices by broadening the range of activities (i.e new possibilities and alternatives). FOR EXAMPLE make more friends, take a class, exercise, read a book, get a hobby or become involved in community activities.
  • Take constructive action (i.e. do it!) in a SMART manner to become SMARTER.
To ACT smart-ly, implies to confront or deal with an issue or problem, and not to waste unnecessary energy to keep carrying unresolved burdens around.
