News Item 172. Mishlei 15-22 (Advice)

A new proverb has been posted to the Mishlei section. This proverb compares the extremes of not receiving any advice with receiving plentiful advice. When a person makes plans without consulting anyone, his plans may very well be frustrated because of some consideration that he didn’t consider. So instead of erring by not getting advice, a person should consult with as many advisers as seems useful. This means he should overcome his natural inclination to restrict the number of advisers (but only as long as additional advisers are bringing him new insight).
