Dig a well continuously at one place, you will surely get water
Is it necessary to do too many things at one go, without focusing on a single task till it is successfully done? This is the message brought out in the interesting analogy of this thread.
I remember reading a story in one of the comics during my childhood in which a man in search of water starts digging a well and after some digging, he finds no water. He gets impatient and frustrated and then shifts to new digging location, where the same thing happens. Similarly, he tries out digging in five different locations but he still does not get water at any of the places. He gets tired, sad and depressed. A learned man passing by tells him that if he had dug for the same depth at one place instead of five different places, it would have been sufficient to reach water.
We try to do so many things in life. Sometimes we want to do this, sometimes we want to do that. Sometimes we are attracted to attempt everything but many of our attempts tend to be half-hearted ones and ultimately we get demoralized, stop and fail. Essence of life lies in attempting those few things which you feel you are interested and you can take it to the end. True that this is the age of multitasking and sometimes we need to do many things together which is perfectly fine if it is a need of the hour. But what does not make sense is trying everything out just for the sake of doing without seriousness. Sometimes we see others doing many things and feel we should not be left back and start doing the same but seldom we continue it to the end. At times it is merely a matter of satisfaction for our inner self that we are doing so many things together. It is like being "Jack of all trades but master of none." So let us deep dive into our inner conscience and find out what is it that we really love to do and then start the journey towards achieving it and keep working till it is achieved.
So the summary is that no harm in trying different things if the situation demands but there should be at least one among those things which you are passionate about and which you will dig incessantly till the last depth to ultimately reach success.
