What do you better than anyone else?

One of the questions I asked myself on my Summer Game Plan was: What do I do better than anyone else?

It seems like a prideful question at first glance.  But please understand my goal here isn't to brag or flaunt what I do the best.  My desire is to better understand myself and make sure that I'm in my "sweet spot" when it comes to life and ministry.

It's funny (and maybe a little sad) that I don't have a hard and fast answer to that question after eight full-time summers at camp.  But let me tell you what I have discovered:

In general, I spend way too much time doing things that anyone could do with the same level of proficiency.  Yardwork, facility care, cleaning, pool upkeep are a few things that come to mind.  This isn't to say that I'm above these tasks, I'm only asking: Why do I spend a majority of time and energy on things that anyone could do?  Why don't I focus more time and energy on what I do the best?

What do you do better than anyone else?  How can you do it more?
