He who believes in everything , believes in nothing." My father used to quote that to me. It may be biblical in its origin. It certainly is true. The way I read it is that if you are spread too thin, you have no focus. Or, put another way, it is better to be more highly focused on fewer goals, than semi-focused on a lot of goals. This especially rings true for our modern society-just look at people when they are driving (cell phones, make-up, reading!). When you scatter yourself in many directions, you actually lose focus on what you really want. The best way is to visualize what you want first, and then put most of your time and effort into that!
