Captain at the wheel

One surefire way to drive a ship off course is to put the captain at the wheel.

A captain’s job is to envision the destination, set the route, and course correct when necessary.It’s often in the course correction where the ship goes astray. It can sometimes feel easier to just take hold of the wheel yourself, but don’t do it.

Perhaps you’re more adept at steering than the person at the wheel (quite often, you’re really not), but don’t pretend you can steer and do captain stuff at the same time. Almost no one can.
