We think that being in motion and taking action are the same
things. But no, both are different. Motion is something that you do but there
is no outcome or result, but actions will give you results.
For example- you think about weight loss, you do your research
for the best gym, best, trainee, what you
will wear, when you will go, and everything else but these all are motions. If you
really go to the gym, follow diet plans
then it is action. There are no results from motion but action will show you
progress. But most of the people think that motions will give you results but
no, it’s not true. How planning and research will help you to shed few pounds
Another example- so you have decided to read 1 book per month,
now you have the list of 12 best books for a year. But you are not reading it,
so this is motion but if you start reading any of the books then it is action.
So how motion is different from the action?
This is the point where smart people make mistakes; they
think that being in motion is being in
action. It’s not like that we don’t need motion, it helps us to view the goals more broadly, we do research, we think,
we reconsider it. But if you want to see the results you have to start working
on the plans. No matter how hard you worked to collect the information it is
useless until you utilize it and start implementing it.
Sometime we don’t want to be in action because we think that
our results would not be that good, or we are afraid of criticism. We don’t feel
confident about our choice.
How to start action
Never forget your
Keep your goal in clear and straight in
your mind. If your goal is to finish the work until
evening then just start doing, don’t waste the whole time in planning.
Set an action
Don’t just keep planning. If you are
deciding to lose weight, then decide a date to start exercising. Don’t delay it
or postpone it.
Sometimes we can’t differentiate between
motion and action. It is very important that you have a clear idea about the
progress. If you are doing something and not getting anything out of it then
maybe you should stop it.
