Action faking, as far as I understand, is a term that is used when a person is busy doing all the unnecessary shit regarding entrepreneurship. It is the stuff that doesn't get you anywhere but it will make you feel better in the short-term.
It feels like you are moving in the right direction, "building a business", but in reality you're doing things like design your business card before you have a real working business, get a t-shirt with a text "I'm an entrepreneur", read book after book (READING IS GOOD!!! Doing nothing with the knowledge is BAD!!!) etc.

When I am looking for different e-commerce platforms to use for my business and thinking about their pros and cons, but I don't have a product and I haven't got any idea what I am going to sell, then I am action faking. It is good to know these platforms, yes, but this info won't help me with my business - yet.

It's getting busy with things that don't lead to your goal or that don't lead to your goal efficiently, so you end up deluded into thinking you're taking action. The opposite of action faking is kinetic execution which means two things: 1) Taking the shortest route to your first sale, then 2) Taking the shortest route to your first productocracy.

An action-fake is playing dopamine games with your brain.

Action-Faking (verb): Is any action, task, or "to do" that isn't found within the critical path-- the exact steps that will get you your first customer.

Action faking is doing things that make you think you’re making progress when you’re not.

Typically it’s taking action that doesn’t solve problems, or not the current problem standing in your way.
