Sir Ken Robinson’s witty words on modern education. I am often railing against the system in my own country for the exact reasons expounded here in this presentation.
I have no idea where this story originated. Someone needs this today.
Before he died, a father said to his son; “Here is a watch that your grandfather gave me. It is almost 200 years old. Before I give it to you, go to the jewelry store downtown. Tell them that I want to sell it, and see how much they offer you.”
The son went to the jewelry story, came back to his father, and said; “They offered $150.00 because it’s so old.”
The father said; “Go to the pawn shop.”
The son went to the pawn shop, came back to his father, and said; “The pawn shop offered $10.00 because it looks so worn.”
The father asked his son to go to the museum and show them the watch.
He went to the museum, came back, and said to his father; “The curator offered $500,000.00 for this very rare piece to be included in their precious antique collections.”
The father said; “I wanted to let you know that the right place values you in the right way. Don’t find yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you are not valued. Those that know your value are those who appreciate you, don’t stay in a place where nobody sees your value.”
Know your worth.
One of the projects I’m involved with is successmotivationinspiration.com, a podcast, Facebook Group and website that was the brainstorm of my friend M. Curtis McCoy. Curtis and I spent some time together a few weeks back talking about my weakest subject, myself.
