    Cool Expressions

    There is a Ugandan expression that follows which I was wondering if anyone could
    tell me another way to express the same meaning...
    "The hunter in pursuit of an elephant does not stop to throw stones at birds."
    I personally have already interpreted this to another more simple expression I think,
    "Keep your eye on the prize."

    I would really appreciate anyone elses' perspective.

    Awkward
    I was wondering if anyone could tell me another way to express the same meaning as the Ugandan expression that follows.

    Yes, that's a good analogy. I prefer the Ugandan version.
