Movement versus Action…

“Never confuse movement with action!”

Ernest Hemingway

Vincent Nguyen (2013) states this is “Perhaps my favorite Hemingway quote. Learn the difference between simply feigning results and actually performing.

Make sure everything you do is defined and can bring measurable success. Don’t settle for less and assume you’re making progress just because you’re moving around. Give your life meaning with action and don’t fake it because you still need to remember how to be yourself. Don’t look busy, be busy.”
