Action as preparation

Two competing truths:

– The more prepared person usually wins.
– 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.
