Action – Something done so as to accomplish a purpose.
Here’s my favorite beagle checking the perimeter of the yard. He goes out regularly – every 15 minutes or so – to see if something changed. You never know if that darn squirrel’s been out again! It gives the beagle purpose as he takes action in his patrol of the yard. Of course, if Mom steps out onto the deck, do you continue your job or see if she has a treat? You can see here that he’s not quite sure which is more important.
