"Stay in your wheelhouse."
Imagine the following scenario for a moment.
You are the captain of a ship. Things are going swimmingly. (Pun intended). You are cruising on the waters, enjoying the views, and the fellowship of those on board with you. Then one day you decide to walk the deck a bit. Then the next day a little bit more. You stop to talk to a few folks here and there. And then before you know it, you are spending a lot of time on the deck and not at the wheel.
About that time you look up to see the ship headed for ground.
You realize no one is at the wheel.
You've left your wheelhouse and now the ship is in danger.
The very people you were there to serve aren't getting the best from you.
You race back to the ship's wheelhouse and get back to what you are the best at.
Within a short period of time things go from what looked like an impending ship wreck, to a re-focused and centered purpose.
Have you ever felt like that?
Like you looked up to realize that the calling on you was left behind you?
"...it MAY BE that..."
To bring the value you were meant to, you need to stay where you were called to.
Grab the wheel.
Stay true to your vision.
Stay in your wheelhouse.
And if you ever find yourself outside of it?
Run with all you have back to it.
