This video, from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s YouTube channel, has people aged 6 to 93 sharing their best pieces of advice for life. The video starts with the youngsters, and some of the advice is meant to be a joke, but as the video goes on the wisdom gets a little more practical. For example, take a chance and ask that person to dance, you don’t need to eat all you can at a buffet just because it’s an “all you can eat” buffet, and always back up your hard drive. Other great lessons include always being kind to your family, getting laid off can be a blessing in disguise, being a starving artist only works if you actually make art, and to spend all your money or your kids will do it for you. Last, but not least, you shouldn’t always listen to other people’s advice. Other people’s advice isn’t always right for you, and none of us really know what we’re doing anyway.
