How do the following sentences differ in meaning:
- Put your promise into action.
- Put your promise into practice.
Dictionaries' definitions are so close that I cannot tell these expressions apart:
Put something into action:
If you put an idea or policy into action, you begin to use it or cause it to operate.
Put something into practice:
If you put an idea, plan etc into practice, you start to use it and see if it is effective.
To me, into action phrase works properly in my example, but I doubt if "put into practice" works.
I wonder if you could help me with these two sentences.
