A Useful Life Lesson - In the Time it Takes to Cook an Egg

Oscar Wilde once said that:

"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."

In large part this axiom is correct. However, it should not discourage anyone from attempting to impart some small bit of tried-and-true wisdom that each of us usually has to share. The following video is one of the few exceptions to Wilde's maxim that I have ever encountered online.

None of the usual half-empty, half-full horse hockey. Just a chunk of solid advice on how to sort out what often can be some seriously confusing goals in life. I'm happy to note that most people here will anticipate the secondary stages of what happens to the jar. How the professor assigns importance to those stages is another matter entirely and few will guess it correctly.

If you found this video useful, please consider sharing it with others that you love and care about; above all, children and teenagers. In this modern world—where style is continually allowed to triumph over substance—there are few better lessons to teach youth. Especially one that we can share with such ease.

Nice one, Zenster. I shared this with a bunch of folks. Quite good and even the short attention span of the low information voter can stay focused on this for the duration.

A good lesson but one problem. The so-called empty jar was actually full. It was full of G-d. G-d is everywhere and fills every empty place.

Absolutely agree Finalis, 100% but we have to remember that some folks do not believe in G-D, God, the Lord or Jesus Christ. As such, this represents something different to them and that is what matters. I totally agree with you.
