Matthew on Action vs Motion

Matthew on action versus motion as he reads Atomic Habits (my review of Atomic Habits here).

Outlining a handful of articles I want to write is motion but writing a single piece is an action. Actions are steps towards a defined outcome. Not only did I find this insightful for building habits but also how I categorise tasks.

You should be biased towards action. Deploy that code. Publish that blog post. It’s far to easy to only do the motion thing, then wonder in a year why you’ve not made any progress.
