The “chicken-or-egg” debate refers to the paradoxical
situations that involve two factors, each of which in
turn causes or leads to the other. If the egg came
first, then it came from a chicken, if the chicken came
first, it came from the egg and so forth. Likewise, how
do one work out which came first: the tools or the
machine? Did the grass seed come before the blade
of grass? Did the bird, the lizard or the spider come
before the egg? How about the orange tree and the
seeds: which came first?
Similarly, in everyday life, people would say, “You
need relevant experience to get a good job, or you
need a good job to get relevant experience.” If all
companies keep saying that, where then would you
get the so called experiences from? People would say
you need money to do business, others would say
you need business to have money. Business or
money which should come first? It is also said that
you need good collateral to get a loan, and you need
to get loans to have worthwhile collateral. We all
know which the banks would put first, but could it be
arranged in any other order?
Furthermore, do you need patronage of customers to
help you develop a better product, or you need a
better product to get patronage of customers? Again,
some talented artists, performers, entertainers,
actors, and so on, think they need a sponsor to be
successful in their professions, but they also need to
be successful to get a sponsor. Having higher
education can lead to securing good job, and with
good job, you can afford higher education. Where
does the circle begin or end?
At the family level, does a husband need to care for
his wife so she can respect him; or a wife needs to
respect her husband so he can care for her? A
woman once said, “I no longer express love feelings
for my husband because he complains about me a
lot.” Could it be that her husband complains about
her a lot because she no longer expresses love
feelings for him? Do couples quarrel a lot because
they don’t communicate, or they don’t communicate
because they quarrel a lot?
The real question therefore, is: in your own particular
situation, which is the chicken, which is the egg, and
which comes first? And the real answer is: it doesn’t
matter whether you begin with the egg or the
chicken. What should come first is for you to start a
good life from where you are, with what you have,
and in the best way you can.
