How Many Rabbits Are You Chasing?

“If you chase two rabbits, both will escape.”

A big part of mindfulness is training your attention focus on one thing at a time, and I thought I’d become a lot better at doing so since I’ve been practising daily. However, when I came across this proverb last week, I realised that I’ve still got a long way to go!

When I read it I thought, “I’m not chasing two rabbits. I’m chasing about ten!” Despite knowing that as a business it’s important to specialise, I’ve been seduced by wanting to cater to a wide array of potential clients’ needs and as a result, not surprisingly, I’ve felt that progress has been slow.

I’ve decided to try to focus, at least for the time being on just one rabbit: teaching lunchtime mindfulness sessions in businesses. Just making that decision felt liberating. Since then I’ve started to reduce my commitments to things that were taking me in other directions, and felt better still.  As I’ve started telling people that this is what I’m doing, I’ve also had more people offering me work, as it’s suddenly much clearer in their minds what I can actually offer them.

So I challenge you to ask yourself: how many rabbits am I chasing? What Would it feel like to choose only one and stick with it? You might find your life gets a whole lot simpler.

Mindfulness Testimonials

"I've been working with Ken for the past two and a half years. During this time we have had weekly meetings, the majority of which have been via Skype with a few taking place face to face. The experience of talking via Skype and face to face does not vary greatly as Ken always works in a space that is suited to our work. This is testament to Ken's skills and his commitment to our work. For those that need to work remotely I can recommend this an option." (Skype Client, Director, Dubai)
"I had been a client of Kenneth’s for over two years when, due to a change of job, I had to move to London. Since then I’ve been having my sessions by Skype. Before I started these sessions, I had been a little concerned that it would feel different, or less personal somehow, to have therapy that wasn’t face to face. However, I have been surprised by how natural it feels to have a session this way, and how the sense of really being listened to and understood transcends the medium which we are using to communicate. My weekly therapy is an invaluable part of my life and my weekly routine, and now I have the convenience of having it from my own room, and to be able to communicate with Kenneth, wherever he is in the world.” ( Skype Client, Artist, London)
