Stay in Your Lane

stay in your lane I’m not good at math. I have difficulty with simple calculations. (At restaurants, so I won’t be seen using my phone calculator, I actually put my hands under the table and use my fingers to figure the tip.) In a nutshell, my acumen for numbers is nil. … And yet, I do have other skills and talents. Rather than attempt to work on every weakness we have to make it better, better, better, it makes more sense to get really good at doing what we do well. It may even mean we forgive ourselves for our weaknesses, and that we accept our limitations. We all have them … so no biggie. Time, energy, and brainpower are valuable resources. And in some cases (like my case  with regard to numbers), they’re limited resources as well. That’s why I’m suggesting you “stay in your lane.” This certainly doesn’t mean that you stop learning, doing, and growing. Instead, it means you squash self-doubt about your weaknesses and limitations by playing to your strengths. In other words, get creative around those weaknesses and limitations, and master your areas of expertise.
