当局者迷,旁观者清

                    Chinese Proverbs

迷,

                          The spectators see more of the game than the players.

解释 ( paraphrase )
拿着旗子下棋的人往往容易迷惑糊涂, 在旁边观看下棋的人反而常常看的更加清楚。这条谚语告诉我们: 一件事情的当时人往往因为对利害得失考虑的太多,看问题反而不全面;而局外人常常能够冷静地观察思考,所以反而看的更加清楚。

This proverb points out that a person involved in a matter usually does not have a comprehensive overview of it due to too much concentration on gains and losses, while the onlookers, who have a calmer and more objective attitude, have a better grasp of what is going on.

当局者:下棋的人。
            Referring to the player.
旁观者:看棋的人。
           The spectators.

造句 ( example )
当局者迷, 旁观者清, 很多时候, 在外人看起来很简单的一件事情, 自己却总是犯迷糊, 不知道该如何去做。
