In this three minute illuminating video, British philosopher Alan Watts poses the question "What would you do if money were no object?"

On the surface the question seems a bit heedless. Yet each question ties together seamlessly to pull students into looking inward to reflect and realize that life's greatest joy could serve their futures.

By the way, there is a consensus answer to whether money can buy happiness, and it's not what you think.

So now the next time you see a hand raise and hear a student ask "How am I supposed to know what I should do when I grow up?", you have the ideal resource to motivate each student to look inward to discover their own answer.
