Two competing truths:
– The more prepared person usually wins.James Clear’s newsletter
– You get credit for action, not preparation.
The way to circle that square is to take action as a form of preparation.
Stop reading articles about leading meetings and start leading (low stakes) meetings. Stop researching frameworks and start building (something non-mission-critical) on top of them.
That way, you get both: you become more prepared, and you create something that you can get credit for.
