The Inside

Recognize a good thing when you have it. Pay attention! Be aware & flexible in order to avoid the worst of outcomes. Pay Attention! Be self-reliant, & take immediate action. Be aware. Do not spill the pot. Carelessness & laziness bring misfortune. Watch out! Assume responsibility before you take action. Good luck. You will get nowhere, unless you correct your mistakes. Keep on trying. Misfortune!
