An Inspirational Way To Live

An Inspirational Way To Live

 

Amid the Wacky Wednesdays of today and the Turn Back The Clock Thursdays of tomorrow, I wanted to pause for a moment and remember the late Dr. Randy Pausch (1960-2008).

 

On September 18th, 2007, Randy Pausch gave the last lecture of his career at Carnegie Mellon University- "The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"- indeed, the "Last lecture" of his life.  Through it, he and his memory have taught many a better way to live.

 

"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand".

 

"When you do the right thing, good stuff has a way of happening".

 

"Luck is when preparation meets opportunity".

 

"Time is all you have, and you may find one day that you have less than you think".

 

Rest in peace, Randy Pausch.  Taken by pancreatic cancer far too soon- July 25th, 2008.

That was a very good post and video. I thought it to be very inspirational for sure. What a great speaker and a legacy he left at such a young age.

Hi, Ted:  Thank you for dropping by, and for your kind words.  It's hard to believe Randy Pausch has already been gone 6 years!

Dennis, I do remember this and it is a total shame this poor guy passed away. Great inspiration. This guy is funny and makes excellent points. Thanks for reminding us.

Hi, Bob:  Thank you for stopping by, and for your comment.  Yeah, it's funny how we always seem to learn things from those who either have little time left on Earth or have already passed on.

If we could only harness things better, be more observant, considerate and kind enough to pay attention to folks more every day, we just might appreciate folks more while they're still around for us to tell them.

And Randy Pausch has guaranteed that a number of folks won't ever think of Tigger the same as before.
