Motion and action. Have you ever heard about it?
In this article that I quickly thought I’d like to explain you what are the both and how you can get the job done. Everybody actually experiment the both in life, but some people are better than others to take action. Which is important in life to get things done, however we are going to see that motion has also his part of importance.
So follow me well on this one please.
What is motion?
Motion on my own words is the time that we spent doing no actions. You see on my own point of view we are all the time between the both. Time spent in motion has I said at the beginning are not necessary bad as you can get energy during this time to get to the action then. Another point is that you cannot be all the time on the action as you will burn your wings at some point and get on what we can call the burnout. Or you can just simply doing thing badly.
So motion times are needed like when we sleep which is important to feel good and perform better then. Motions are also these times before the game, when players are in their bubbles listening music. Thus motion is familiar with concentration.
To be clear on this, motion for instance can be browsing, reading, looking for strategy, researching on marketing, thinking and anything without action. As we can see motion is important but in our job or career is not going to get values. However, they can be part of the process as motion can be thinking of the strategy before the action.
What is action?
Here, action. This one should be easier to understand and not too long to describe as his colleague motion. Action is the move. Action is the risk, action is what get things done.
Thus, action for instance can be making a sales phone call, writing, doing an interview, making an ads, taking an important decision and apply it.
Action are definitely required to perform a task. You can get in motion like studying but at some point to master your craft you need to practice and the action is taking over to do it.
Action is what make the pros.
The problem between the both
So if you get me to here. You’ve understood that if you do too much actions you can get tired and at some point doing nothing. In the opposite if you do too much motions, the logic is also easy to understand, you won’t get nothing at the end.
So to me, we have to get a kind of balance between the both. It’s important to think of the strategy (motion). Then doing the strategy (action). Life is all about having the right balance. We need to sleep to have enough energy to do things. If you forget to sleep you won’t be well to perform good, you could be able to do some move but it could be badly doing.
You see, the problem often is that we mix the both or we do too much of the one without knowing it sometimes. When we are in the action we really need to be focus on the task. This task has to be able to get done before getting to another process and doing the motion time.
So yeah, it’s like a process, getting into the motion (concentration, sleeping, reading, thinking, strategy, analysing) then come the action (doing, taking action, writing, doing the strategy, action with the new analyses).
Use the both and get things done
So to be good and efficient, you have to think and then acting! You have to rest and then doing the job. You have to meditate and play the game.
In my own personal experience, I like start doing things (action), then I analyse (motion), get some feedback (motion) and redo it better (action). Cause I have seen so many people which can get easily trapped in the motion. I don’t want to be one of them, and I don’t want to you to be one of them as well.
So please, don’t be in the trap of wanting the perfection.
If I thought too much about my company before launching it, I will never have one. If I thought too much about this blog, you would have never be able to read this article or the others. Acting is giving me the chance to do it and then be able to do it better.
The most important so, is to be in good relation with motion and action but at some point if you want to get things done you need to do it. So just do it, get back on the motion, and redo it better.
We need more doer on this world. As we know the world need us to protect it or to change it for the better. The doer are what make things happen. The doer are the ones who can change the world and make it at a better place to live.
You see I’m gonna be honest with you, if I was just thinking on this article and not writing it, I will not get anything done. It’s definitely not the best of my article, however is bringing a value if you get my point. The value is what I’m looking for to give you. Then you have it. So once I’ve done it if I want I can come back to it and correct it to bring more value to you and this article. But this is it, this is here.
I’ve made this article to simply make you understand, two things.
First, motion is important cause we need to sleep, we need to think. But second act, act please. Sorry to repeat myself, but actions are what make things happen. I don’t want you to be another dreamer, which just dream and not realising his dream.
Action is what will make your dreams come true.
Now that you want to be a doer. I recommend you to read this article: To be more productive to do things. Or if you have enough motion, you can just do it. Now.
