BrainPint #3 - Motion vs Action

BrainPint #3 - Motion vs Action
By Janel • Issue #3 • View online
The lockdown continues and so does the learning binge.
This week I completed Coursera’s Learning How To Learn course and got FreeCodeCamp’s Responsive Web Design Certification. Got those HTML & CSS Basics down, so I can’t wait to start on JavaScript.
📖 Why learn how to learn? If I want to learn many things, I better learn how to do it efficiently.
💻Why learn coding? I want to build stuff.
But the main goal isn’t the motion behind this, it’s the action, aka bringing what I learned to life. I expand on my thoughts below.

Motion vs Action
As I learned from Atomic Habits, if you want to do something, you actually have to get around to doing it.
“When you’re in motion, you’re planning and strategizing and learning. Those are all good things, but they don’t produce a result. Action, on the other hand, is the type of behavior that will deliver an outcome.
Example: If I outline 20 ideas for articles I want to write, that’s motion. If I actually write and publish an article, that’s action.
Sometimes motion is useful, but it will never produce an outcome by itself. It doesn’t matter how many times you go talk to the personal trainer, that motion will never get you in shape. Only the action of working out will get the result you’re looking to achieve.”
For coding, I’ve taken action by doing challenges like this. For other things that I’m learning, I’ve gotten great advice to make a sandbox to learn by doing.
