Motion vs Action

Motion is necessary. Our bodies are built to move. Stop moving and entropy occurs. But the movement, the “activity” has purpose.

Never mistake activity for achievement.—John Wooden

Are we “in motion” or are we taking action?

Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness; obviously your life cannot possibly be silly or trivial or meaningless if you are so busy, completely booked, in demand every hour of the day. – The Busy Trap

We all do “busy” well. We make sure we inform each other of how busy we are.

Why aren’t you as busy as I am? Others ask.

We are. Busy acting on the stuff that matters.
