Sitting down with Cookie Monster for some life coaching is kind of like a therapy session during which you have to eat things.

Maybe it doesn’t sound like Cookie Monster is taking his clients seriously in PBS‘ new Sesame Street YouTube video. Or maybe the Monster is just trying to give us some perspective on what’s really important in life. It’s the little things that really count. Focus on those, and everything will be okay.

Also, have some milk handy when you eat cookies. That and other practical advice is what makes Cookie Monster such a national treasure.
