To be ready and to be about

Hello everybody!!! Do me a favour please! Are “to be a ready’ and ’ to be about” the same?

Hi Pressman,

If you are ready to do something then you are prepared to do something and you might be waiting to take the next step.
When you are about to do something you have already made the decision and you are now going to do it.[YSaerTTEW443543]
