: How about this phrase? is there another idiom that has the same meaning.
: Thanks in advance.

"Between two stools one falls to the ground."

A donkey between two bundles of hay srarves.
A man cannot whistle and drnk at the same time.
Doing everything is doing nothing.
Grasp all, lose all.
He that grasps too much holds nothing.
He who hesitates is lost.
If you run after two hares you will catch neither.
No man can both sip and blow at once.
