If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either is a famous Russian proverb. The meaning is simple, focus on one thing to achieve success. Rabbits were being used to illustrate the idea because of their behavior. Rabbit, when chased, tend to change direction rapidly to throw off their pursuer. In order to catch a rabbit, you need to focus on one and follow its every move to have a good chance of catching them. Focus on one goal at a time.
In business and life, it is impossible to chase two rabbits or even more at the same time. One has to have a focus on one thing and achieve its desired results before chasing on another one. It is about focus and tenacity on a vital and essential but singular task. If you think you can multitask or do several tasks at the same time, you can’t. You will just get frustrated and would accomplish nearly nothing.
According to The One Thing Approach, there are many distractor factors. These are the responsibilities we have both personally and professionally. We need to set goals and focus on them. Setting goals is quite easy, having the focus to achieve the goal is very challenging. It takes discipline and constant practice.
