This is the way for men who want to learn my strategy - By Miyamoto Musashi

From the Book of Five Rings
          By Miyamoto Musashi
This is the way for men who want to learn my strategy:
1. Do not think dishonestly.
2. The Way is in training.
3. Become acquainted with every art.
4. Know the Ways of all professions.
5. Distinguish between gain and loss in worldly matters.
6. Develop intuitive judgment and understanding for everything.
7. Perceive those things which cannot be seen.
8. Pay attention even to trifles.
9. Do nothing which is of no use.

Quoting the sword saint is wonderful but what I would be interested in reading is your philosophy on each one of his tenants because your perspective and perception of these would be more appropriate and applicable to our modern practices :-)
