Today is my brother’s birthday, so I have to write about him.

Here’s the fundamental difference between him and me. I’m not a dreamer. He is.

If I’m in charge of a project, I’ll set makeable goals for the project, and manage the personnel/resources conservatively to ensure success.

My brother will set a goal that’s beyond reach but attempt to reach it anyway. He may fall short, but for him it’s more about the ambitious goal than about completion.

I’m the perfect right-hand man – I’ll get things done.
He’s the perfect front-man – shoot high and hang on for the ride.
