专心致志 【zhuān xīn zhì zhì】

Recommended Posts

There was a master in Go named Qui in ancient times, so people called him Yi Qui (Yi is the old name for Go). He has two students, one is curious and listens carefully, so he improved very soon; the other, although listens in class every day, is very distracted. He looks at the teacher while thinking if there would be swan geese flying in the sky, thus missing every word the teacher said, so he has made no improvement.  


[Annotation] 致:extreme, all; 志:interest, mind

[Definition] (Someone) is very concentrated and not distracted.
