Every thought makes an action. Be it internal or external. Somewhere an action is planted. As simple as "the remote is to my left" could lead to an action days from now when the time to retrieve it arises. Bigger thoughts obviously therefore lead to bigger actions. Such as, "all my money is gone and I need to get food". This leads to the chain of actions that start with the gathering of what one is good at, what one might do to get money, where one should go to get money, how one should pursue the money. And the final, most important action, what food one should buy with the money.
All this means little else besides, think before you act. That's the only way to live.
