A more detailed explanation of why the conclusion is an action.
καὶ ταῦτ᾽ ἄμφω πράττει, ἄν μή τι κωλύῃ ἢ ἀναγκάζῃ. ‘ποιητέον μοι ἀγαθόν· ἀγαθὸν δὲ οἰκία.’ ποιεῖ οἰκίαν εὐθύς. ‘σκεπάσματος δέομαι· ἱμάτιον δὲ σκέπασμα· ἱματίου δέομαι. — oὗ δέομαι, ποιητέον· ἱματίου δὲ δέομαι.’ ἱμάτιον ποιεῖ. καὶ τὸ συμπέρασμα, τὸ ἱμάτιον ποιητέον, πρᾶξις ἐστιν. πράττει δὲ ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς. εἰ ἱμάτιον ἔσται, ἀνάγκη τόδε πρῶτον, εἰ δὲ τόδε, τόδε. καὶ τοῦτο πράττει εὐθύς. ὅτι μὲν οὖν ἡ πρᾶξις τὸ συμπέρασμα, φανερόν· αἱ δὲ προτάσεις αἱ ποιητικαὶ διὰ δυεῖν ὁδῶν γίνονται, διά τε τοῦ ἀγαθοῦ καὶ διὰ τοῦ δυνατοῦ.
And he does both of them, if it is not the case that something hinders or forces him. ‘I must make something good. A house is good.’ Immediately he makes a house. ‘I am in need of a covering. Cloak is a piece of covering. I am in need of a cloak. — What I am in need of, I must make.’ He makes a cloak. And the conclusion, i.e., I must make the cloak, is an action. But one acts from a starting-point. If there will be a cloak, this must be first, and if this, this. And he makes this immediately. Now, it is apparent that the action is the conclusion. And the propositions that are capable of making come into being through two ways, through the good and through the possible.
