You cannot do two things successfully at the same time; concentrate on one thing at a time or you will achieve nothing. Trying to do two or more things at a time, when even one on its own needs full effort, means that none of them will be accomplished properly.

EXAMPLE

Kate: If I want to pursue my acting career, I’ll have to take more days off to go to auditions. But I want to get ahead in the office, too.

Bob: If you run after two hares, you will catch neither.

Origin:
The saying is attributed to Publilius Syrus in the form of Latin proverb “Duos insequens lepores, neulrum cap it”.

同時: at the same time; simultaneously
追: chase after; run after; pursue
兩: two
兔: hare; rabbit
落空: come to nothing; fail
