The last lecture

You would think that a dying man would be more interested in himself and would want to talk about cures, medicine and chemotherapy, or complain about how bad it is for him. Not Randy Pausch, a 47 year old proffessor who was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. Randy gave what he called “The Last Lecture” or what was renamed to “Realizing your childhood dreams” lecture to his students and friends in Carnegie Mellon. The last time I heard anyone speak and felt so inspired was back in ’05 when I attended a lecture by Paolo Coehlo. Not only is he hilarious and charismatic he says it exactly like it is. My personal conclusion from this lecture was the realization that brick walls are there for a reason and that there is always a way to achieve what we really want to.

It is an hour and 15 minutes but well worth your time.
