"From the errors of others, a wise man corrects his own."

Publilius Syrus

Some words are timeless.  Publilius Syrus was a Latin writer in the 1st century BC and his words are a appropriate today as they were when he wrote them over 2000 years ago.  The remaining works of Publilius are a compilation of single sentences.  Today we look at one of those.

From ancient history Publilius Syrus's quote still stands out, "From the errors of others, a wise man corrects his own." If we watch and learn we can avoid the mistakes others have made in the past.

They say that history repeats itself.  Errors are made over and over again, but a wise man will see those errors and not repeats them himself.

What a powerful lesson if only we would apply it in our relationships with others.  Could  it help on our jobs, even make promotions come faster?  When you think about this timeless saying, it is easy to see that we need to watch others and learn so we avoid the pitfalls others encounter.
