It’s not every day you come across the last talk of a dying man. Ok, we’re all dying right, but 47 year old Randy Pausch knows he’s only got a few months to live, and so does the 500 strong audience at Caregie Mellon university at which he’s a professor.
In this, his final lecture, he talks about his incredible life and imparts invaluable pearls of wisdom about he achieved all his childhood dreams, which included things like designing Disney theme park rides! It’s a rare thing indeed to get 47 years of practical knowledge about how to really live your life, and reach your goals, from a intelligent, articulate and funny man, who is at the very top of his game, all packed into a single video.
Watching this video has really made me sit back and think about what’s important to me, and whether I could stand up at 47 and say that I have achieved all my childhood dreams? Could you? If not, watch the video and learn how.
Thank you Randy Pausch.
