Randy Pausch – Live, Love & Learn from the Last Lecture

Posted by Orrin Woodward on February 28, 2008

Here is the incredible “Last Lecture” from Randy Pausch a PHD from Carnegie-Mellon.  Randy has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and has only months to live.   The professors at Carnegie-Mellon have a tradition of giving a “Last Lecture” to their students.  The first eleven minutes is Randy’s last lecture shared again on the Oprah show.  Some of the key points to think upon from this courageous man are:

1. Anything is possible to someone willing to dream.

2. If you don’t get your dream – you still learn alot in the process.

3. Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you want.

4. People who care will push you.  It’s only when they no longer care that you will not be pushed.

5. Brick walls are in your life for a reason – they let us prove how bad we want our dream.

6. You can spend your time in life complaining or playing the game hard.

7. Live your life properly and the dreams will come to you.

8. Tell the Truth.

9. Apologize (Properly) A. I’m Sorry  B. It’s My Fault  C. How do I make it right?

10. Wait & people will show their good side.

11. People are way more important than things.
