Build thoughtfully, but build
As a society we tend to place a lot of value on ideas. The people who traditionally get the top jobs get to steer the boat and make the broad sweeping brush strokes. The builders are those who are just that. They implement that vision.
But in the end its not just the big broad sweeping ideas that count, but the small ones along the way, that adjust for changes in requirements and feedback. The ideas that only occur when you start building.
