An idea might be to change the stages to show a single line on the Kanban Card. I have Seen this in use on other productivity software
So you have a single card that has multiple lines
Wipe Dust from Floor¤
What is seen on the board is "Buy Soap".
When Buy Soap is Done you open the Card and delete the "Buy Soap" text and "Wipe Dust From Floor" becomes the next item shown on the Board
Now you can create long lists of next actions and work within the standard infastructure without the clutter
Using David Allen
The (next) action needs to be the next physical, visible behavior, without exception, on every open loop.. This is what you should be focusing on..
