“You are good, but not that good.”

This is one of the lines I keep hearing from him.

Everytime I get  a chance to have lunch with Joey Bonifacio, I take it.  There are lots of lessons to be learned from this man.  I am just so thankful I have mentors that I can go to and glean from their experiences in ministry, family and life in general.

One of the principles I have learned from him is the principle of FOCUS.  You can’t wear too many hats because the truth is, you only have one head.  You can’t juggle lots of balls because you’ll drop one soon enough.  And you can’t be driving in several lanes because there’s only one YOU to drive that ONE car.

Whether it’s in the area of business, ministry or family, focus is critical.

Your kids will only have one daddy (or mommy) they can have.
Your team only has one leader (if you’re the designated one) to lead.  If not, someone else will have to take that role.
Your business only has one CEO.  If not managing it will be nothing short of a nightmare.
Your small group only has one leader.  Otherwise, it can be confusing.

“At the end of the day, there’s only 24 hours and only 100% in one pie.  You’re good but not that good.” – Joey Bonifacio
