Thinking more is better
More is not always better. In fact, in many cases quality beats the quantity.
One way I would look at quality over quantity is moving from being the jack of all trades and the master of none. In this wonderful world of today with all the great networking and diverse teams that we are able to put together there really is no reason anymore (I’m not sure there ever was except we were all made to buy into that myth at one time) to have the thinking of being the one person show anymore. Discover your 20% that really allows you to contribute 80% of the results that only you can give. With the other 80% that you don’t need to be the go to person, opens the door for others who God has equipped with the gifts of some of that stuff being their top 20%. What a blessing to help “hands” to be the hands, or the “feet” to be the feet, or the “head” to be the head.
Here is another place I am recommending to focus on quality over quantity. Your team. I do understand this may not settle well for some who read this and some may even be thinking how can you discriminate against some of the team, but I would like to challenge you to think this over before coming to a judgement too quickly.
With your team I believe that not everyone on your team all have the same desire or interest to be involved at the same level. This is perfectly alright, so why is it not alright to invest in your top 20% who say they want to be there by giving more of your limited time and resources to them. I believe I see this is exactly what Jesus did knowing that His time here on earth was limited, as is ours, and He needed to set up something that was going to out live His time here on earth. Jesus had His 3, Peter, James, and John. Then we know that Jesus had His 12 Disciples (which the 3 are part of that group as well). Jesus had his 70 (or 72 depending on what translation you are reading because some manuscripts have 70 and some have 72).
Luke 10:1-2 – After this, the Lord chose seventy others and sent them out in pairs ahead of him into every town and place where he planned to go. 2 He said to them, “There are a great many people to harvest, but there are only a few workers. So pray to God, who owns the harvest, that he will send more workers to help gather his harvest.
Focusing on the things for you personally or on team members that bring the biggest rewards is a good strategy to be used your in life.
