Why "Catch Your Hare"?

The full phrase is "First, catch your hare...". It's popularly believed to be the start of a recipe for jugged hare: before you cook hare, you must catch your hare.

In fact, the phrase is apocryphal. It's sometimes ascribed to the cookery writer Hannah Glasse and sometimes to Mrs Beeton. In fact, neither writer used these words: although Hannah Glasse starts a recipe "Take your Hare when it is cas'd...".

Still, it's an interesting phrase. What's the first thing you need to do cook a hare? You need to catch it. It's obvious: but it's the hardest part.

And it's a good metaphor for any creative project: the first step is the hardest, even though you know what you have to do.
