Setting the Wheels in Motion

“causing a series of actions to start, that will help you achieve what you want.”

“the fact or process of doing something, typically to achieve an aim.”

In common speech, the term action is often used interchangeably with the term behaviour. However, a distinction can be made: behaviour is defined as automatic and reflexive activity, while action is defined as intentional, purposful, conscious and subjectively meaningful activity. Thus, throwing a ball is an instance of action; it involves an intention, a goal, and a bodily movement guided by the agent. On the other hand, catching a cold is not considered an action because it is something which happens to a person, not something done by one.

“successfully bring about or reach (a desired objective or result) by effort, skill, or courage.”

A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.”
Ayn Rand – Author and Philosopher

“The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are: Hard work, Stick-to-itiveness, and Common sense.”
Thomas A. Edison – Inventor and Businessman

“We are built to conquer environment, solve problems, achieve goals, and we find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve.”
Maxwell Maltz – Surgeon and Author
