Act, action

Playing a badminton match is an action. This action consists of many sub-actions. Subactions are striking, running and jumping, but also mind actions like looking around to perceive the play, and thinking how to place the shuttle to gather the points for winning. These rather abstract notions can further converted into concrete actions on the court. These concrete actions are whole actions, like a particular stroke complete with footwork, or concreter only the stroke, or most concrete even every detail of a stroke with control of the movement.
Mind actions can converted into concrete actions on court too, like looking around into adapting positions.

Seeing a badminton match consisting of a system of action and sub-actions, makes understandable that thoughts and ideas have to be converted directly into concrete actions. Waiting and asking what to do then diminish. Playing badminton consists of merely acting, not waiting or hasitating.
