“Never confuse movement, with action”

~Ernest Hemingway

Busy work is our mortal enemy.

“Movement” in the quote above refers to taking care of the pressing and loud items in our day. The emails. The text messages. The bills. Parts that need to be done eventually, but are *seemingly* far more urgent in the moment than they are in reality. For at the day’s end, as we climb into bed, the days that were consumed with such busy work leave us feeling the least fulfilled. We may find ourselves saying to ourselves, “What the hell did I do today?”

This is because shear movement does not push us towards our goals. Only action does. Action is premeditated effort, driven by purpose. It’s calculated energy, versus reactive motions. Swimming forward, versus treading water.

This quote urges us to recognize the difference between the two. As we review our recent days, where are we in motion, and where are we in action?
