The Difference Between Motion & Action

by Apr 24, 2023

Could you be confusing motion with action?

When you’re starting a new habit or venture, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement. You start researching, planning, and imagining the results you’ll achieve. While these preparatory tasks might seem valuable, they can often be deceptive — leaving you with little progress.

Real action pulls you toward your goals like a magnet. It’s taking daily steps to hit actionable, achievable metrics like 30 reps per muscle group or 20 cold calls.  Or feeling the satisfaction of accomplishment and the drive to continue moving forward. 

So what’s the key to bridging the gap between planning and executing? 

In today’s episode of the Becoming Kings Podcast, I reveal the difference between going through the motions and concrete action, something I learned from the bestseller Atomic Habits. Most of us go through life without a second thought, mindlessly drifting. Tune in to this episode where I share James Clear’s method for building rock-solid habits.
