Deeds, not words.” – George Washington’s motto

This week I had the odd occasion to listen to a George Washington impersonator give a keynote address.  In full character, the impersonator shared his (George Washington’s) motto, “Deeds, not words.”

Fewer words could not sum up driving change as those three words do.

When other books or blogs tell you to “walk the talk”, replace that often-said-but-rarely-enacted phrase with a mental picture of George Washington standing tall in front of you, calling you forward with “Deeds, not words.”
