There are those who are better at giving advice, and there are those better at taking action. (yes, men and women, for those bristling at this post title)
Advisors should lead with their advice, actors should lead with their actions. I worry that in modern U.S. politics, we've overvalued the men of advice, and lost the definitiveness from men of action.
Oh, and while you're pondering, don't forget to figure out which one you are.
