You cannot chase two rabbits at the same time.
I think some people agree to that statement, stop chasing two objectives at the same time, and focus on one. It is not a bad idea. It could be a rational one. It is up to you, whatever you plan or need to accomplish.
I want to be neutral on this topic and one of the topics on my blog (You will be there, as you said). Both are not wrong, but how do you see people who do chase two goals at the same time? From their point of view, it just seems to be a difficulty or challenge what they have to sort out.
It all your will. You do not need to show people what you feel. just want to say to you ‘just keep your pace and think about it; whatever you think, it will happen as you say.
