On Catching Sand

Another amusing and perceptive video. This time from an advertising guru. I posted another (funnier) talk of his here.  The million dollar question is: what would you have put in the 4th quadrant of his table?

What is it that costs you nothing and that money cannot buy, yet is priceless and brings untold benefit to you and others?

Have a think and then scroll down for my two pence worth of an answer.

I also saw under the sun this example of wisdom that greatly impressed me: There was once a small city with only a few people in it. And a powerful king came against it, surrounded it and built huge siege-works against it. Now there lived in that city a man poor but wise, and he saved the city by his wisdom. But nobody remembered that poor man. So I said, "Wisdom is better than strength." But the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are no longer heeded.

The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded than the shouts of a ruler of fools.

Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good. Ecc. 9:13-18

TED groupies also have given their suggestions here.
