Learn from the mistakes of others – 人の振り見て我が振り直せ
Hito no furi mite waga furi naose (人の振り見て、我が振り直せ) is a Japanese Kotowaza (諺 / saying).
You correct your behavior or attitude by watching other people´s mistakes.
We all make mistakes – we are human beings.
We make mistakes and learn from them. But we also can learn from others doing something wrong, without doing that by ourselves.
This proverb implies that we should step back and rethink our behavior when we think something is wrong with others.
We often easily notice what’s wrong with others while not with ourselves.
