  1. doingnoun

    An act is strictly and originally something accomplished by an exercise of power, in which sense it is synonymous with deed or effect. Action is a doing. Act is therefore single, individual, momentary; action a complex of acts, or a process, state, or habit of exerting power. We say a virtuous act, but rather a virtuous course of action. We speak of the action of an acid upon a metal, not of its act. Act is used, also, for the simple exertion of power; as, an act of will. In this sense an act does not necessarily imply an external effect, while an action does. Morally, the act of murder is in the determination to kill; legally, the act is not complete without the striking of the fatal blow. Act and deed are both used for the thing done, but act refers to the power put forth, deed to the result accomplished; as, a voluntary act, a bad deed. In connection with other words act is more usually qualified by the use of another noun, action by an adjective preceding; we may say a kind act, though oftener an act of kindness, but only a kind action, not an action of kindness. As between act and deed, deed is commonly used of great, notable, and impressive acts, as are achievement, exploit, and feat.

    Festus: We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths.

    Bailey Festus, A Country Town, sc. 7.

    A feat exhibits strength, skill, personal power, whether mental or physical, especially the latter; as, a feat of arms, a feat of memory. An exploit is a conspicuous or glorious deed, involving valor or heroism, usually combined with strength, skill, loftiness of thought, and readiness of resource; an achievement is the doing of something great and noteworthy; an exploit is brilliant, but its effect may be transient; an achievement is solid, and its effect enduring. Act and action are both in contrast to all that is merely passive and receptive. The intensest action is easier than passive endurance.

    Synonyms:
    accomplishment, achievement, act, action, consummation, deed, effect, execution, exercise, exertion, exploit, feat, motion, movement, operation, performance, proceeding, transaction, work

    Antonyms:
    cessation, deliberation, endurance, immobility, inaction, inactivity, inertia, passion (In philosophic sense), quiescence, quiet, repose, rest, suffering, suspension

How to use doing in a sentence?

  1. Maitland Ward:

    This has always been a dream of mine. I just absolutely do my best under pressure and doing like all of the things that I love. I never want to focus on one thing, i love to do so many different things at once, like writing and cosplay and mainstream acting and porn, and it's always been my intention to go back and forth between worlds, so it's just amazing that the world is allowing me to do that because, in the beginning, people would say, ‘You can't do that. Nobody's going to allow you to do that. Nobody's going to take you seriously in the mainstream if you do porn, nobody's going to want to hear your story.’ And I just kept going.

  2. Republican Trump:

    Our country is doing fantastically well, probably the best it has ever done economically.

  3. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo:

    We are flattening the curve by what we're doing and we're flattening the curve so far, you can't relax. The flattening of the curve last night happened because of what we did yesterday.

  4. John Hannah:

    In the minds of a lot of people, U.S. national security and foreign policy has been reduced to either 'do nothing' or 'we go in alone with 200,000 troops,' and I just think that's not the history of American foreign policy, there are almost always more options available to secure our interests than simply that binary choice of doing nothing or doing everything.

  5. Stephan Eichenseher:

    The overwhelming majority of employees are doing their every day job, the fact is we already offer excellent pay, excellent benefits and excellent opportunities for career growth, all while working in a safe, modern work environment.
