Let’s make this simple: Here’s a Manliness Quotient list of activities, from Manliest to Girliest:
1) Me, boldly leading you, a leading leader of visionary leaders.
2) You, listening quietly to me boldly leading you.
3) You, teaching conversationally, among people who know you, who are allowed to challenge, ask, clarify, and teach you, too.
Friend, be a man, stand up, and do number 2.
