Three men walking through a forest came to a raging river.

The first man used STRENGTH to get to the other side of the river. He made it across . . . but he ended up with a few bumps and bruises from slips, trips, and falls as he hopped from slippery rock to slippery rock.

The second man used STRENGTH and TOOLS to get to the other side of the river. He succeeded . . . but he ended up wet and weary, after being tossed into the raging rapids twice.

The third man used STRENGTH and TOOLS and INTELLIGENCE to get to the other side of the river.

Reaching into his backpocket, he checked the map for DIRECTIONS, hiked 100 yards upstream, and crossed the river while remaining high and dry.

Moral:  When life comes at you fast . . . slow down and read the directions.
