Good question. An inspired action is any move toward a possible delivery that would be an answer to a recent question posed. You won’t know if it is a move that will result in a delivery for sure. You will only know that it could possibly help you get to a completed delivery.
Inspired actions that do not lead you to a completed delivery will often lead you to another message that will steer you toward a completed delivery. In other words, they still keep you on a path to the result.
