Camarón que se duerme, se lo lleva la corriente.

Camarón que se duerme, se lo lleva la corriente.

The shrimp that falls asleep gets carried away by the current.

This proverb reminds us that if we are not alert we will lose an opportunity. An English equivalent could be ‘you snooze, you lose’. So, if you want to get ahead, don’t rest on your laurels because time and tide wait for no man.
