Steps Differ from Actions
Steps always lead to a destination. But actions are incentivized activities. The incentives can be of any sort or origin.
Steps are never taken out of mere excitement. Climbing steps out of mere fun can be disastrous. Consider tumbling from a 24-story structure. That would be absolutely no fun.
Steps always lead up to some sort of prolonged fulfillment.
Actions, on the other hand, can be mere activities. Actions are even more important than anything else. You can act out a play or a monologue for a very long time. They can be satisfying, but they are frequently fleeting. This does not negate the need for action. In actuality, steps are made simpler and more satisfying by acts that are well-aligned inside them.
But beware of mere actions or activities and focus more on well-defined steps!
