too many cooks spoil the broth when they have different ideas and plans and donot wish to work in consensus. an individual cannot hanle things just because too many people would spoil it. team work is the order of the day and we need to work in groups. while working in teams one has to take care that all the members of the team are focused towards one objective and their personal motives do not hinder the working of the team.

Hi Vivek1I think it depends on what we are doing.If it is something like cooking or sticthing a dress then too many cook do spoil the broth.But if it is a task where one has to find solutions to a problem or say construct something the three heads are definately better than two.It also depends on who are coming together to do the work and their nature.If all are dominating sort then the work will never be done soon.If one has the leadership qualities and others are cooperative ,I think the task will be done in the best possible way.

I'd have to say yes. I mean it's good to have a second opinion. Third and forth too. But as more people offer their two cents the topic at hand becomes rather redundant. The focus tends to sway in other directions, arguments start etc, etc, etc.

I agree. we all have different ideas and different ways of doing things. When there are too many hands, it makes a cluster ----!
