"Can’t see the forest for the trees" nghĩa là gì?

Chỉ nhìn cây mà không thấy rừng. Photo courtesy jimmy brown.

'Can’t see the forest for the trees' có một từ mới là forest nghĩa là khu rừng. Thành ngữ này có nghĩa là thấy cây mà không thấy rừng, tức là chú ý đến những chi tiết mà không hiểu những kế hoạch hay nguyên tắc lớn hơn.

Ví dụ
Shirley needs a lot more money to buy a house. She’s been saving coupons (phiếu tiết kiệm) at the supermarket and cutting back (bớt mua) on buying new clothes. But she can't see the forest for the trees (chú ý đến những chuyện nhỏ mà không nhìn xa thấy rộng). She has to consider all of her spending and make a long-term savings plan (kế hoạch tiết kiệm dài hạn), not simply focus on (nhắm vào) saving a few dollars.

Experts (chuyên gia) say that to be a successful CEO, you need to be a visionary (người nhìn xa thấy rộng); someone who sees and understands an organization from a broad perspective (viễn cảnh rộng rãi). In other words, it isn’t a position for anyone who can't see the forest for the trees.

Beautiful story! Being rich is not about how much you have, but about how much you give. When you give you will be happier!

Bạn không thể nào thắng phụ nữ

Relative of yours? Photo courtesy Anton Raath.

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."


A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 
30,000 to a man's 15,000. 
The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men... 
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time." The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!" 

and……this is the best one according to me "the silent treatment"

The Silent Treatment 
A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM." He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't woken him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up." 

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.
