'The Colour Codes of Awareness can be used as a model or system for conceptualishttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifing just how we should actually apply awareness. Many people espouse that we should always maintain awareness of our surroundings and be on the lookout for warning signs and indicators that warn of a person about to possibly attack. But it can still be unclear as to how we should go about being ‘aware’.'
'All you need to do is start off at yellow and avoid white. Its that simple.
Yellow then orange then red. Hopefully that is all. That is how awareness works and how awareness equals avoidance.'
It is ironic, the more aware we are, the less likely we are to use the skills we have developed over the years. Ironic, but in a good way.
Train hard, train smart, but do train.
