Why Cancel and Submit are bad button names

Always try to use verbs for your affirmative and negative actions. ¬†Imagine the button is a normal person (not an engineer) saying exactly what they want to do. ¬†Example: ¬†[Cancel My Subscription] [No, Keep it]. ¬†Make it crystal clear what the buttons mean. ¬†Never use OK and Cancel. ¬†OK isn’t clear. ¬†Besides, the user wants to be sure he/she is pressing the right button.

I often use green checks and red x’s to indicate the positive and negative responses.
