What is Action Faking?
"Action-Faking: when you take solitary and/or uncommitted action that is NOT part of a bigger process
For the aspiring entrepreneur who wants to get rich, be his own boss, and blah blah blah, "action-faking" is ordering cards from Vistaprint." - MJ Demarco, Millionaire Fastlane
Action faking is all the stuff we do that makes us feel good about our progress without actually making any meaningful progress.
