What is an Ounce Worth?

You are all familiar with the proverb: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
it is. Take a little time to be preventive of something bad so you don't have to spend a lot more time dealing with the attempt to cure, fix or repair what has broken. If you have ever had the flu and you didn't get your flu shot... you know what I mean.

Here is a version of the proverb that grabbed my attention: "An ounce of practice is generally worth more than a ton of theory."
I love it. What a great comparison. It builds on a very simple leadership principle. That is - leaders are action oriented. Even better, leaders are those who do the kinds of actions that lead to results.
