“Never confuse movement, with action” – Ernest Hemingway

“Busy work” is our mortal enemy.

“Movement” here 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 far more urgent in the moment than they are in actuality. For at the days end, as we climb into bed, the days that were consumed with such busy work leave us the most unfulfilled.

This is because movement does not push us towards our goals. Only “action” does. Action is the premeditated effort with purpose behind it. It’s calculated energy, versus reactive “movement”. It’s swimming forward, versus treading water.

This quote urges us to recognize the difference between the two. As we move through the day, are we in motion, or are we in action?
