STOP AND THINK – None of us is as smart as all of us! (Japanese Proverb)

No matter how much knowledge and experience one person may have, he or she can’t know everything. So, the simple Japanese proverb, quoted by many writers, is profound. The more input we can have from intelligent colleagues who, perhaps, have training in areas we don’t, the better the result from our mutual endeavors.

The wise listen to advice . . . Wisdom is found in those who take advice . . . Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed (Proverbs 12:15; 19:20; 15:22).
