Achieve Your Childhood Dream

In case you lived under a rock last year, Dr Randy Pausch gave his Last Lecture at Carnegie Mellon last September retiring from teaching to spend the final months of his life with his wife and small children. He died yesterday.

Here’s his appearance on Oprah, grab a tissue, you’ll need it for the final five seconds.

The world is truly worse off without Dr Pausch. Sadly, he wouldn’t have shot to fame if he hadn’t been dying. Hopefully he’s inspired many to achieve their childhood dream.

3 smart people left their mark:

    What an incredible and inspiring man. This is good reminder of what is truly important.

    His book is in my To Read list…and I’ll have to watch the video when I’m home alone because I KNOW I will be crying like a little girl.

    I host a Virtual Book Club on my site, and the last book we did was his. I was totally moved by his life and the way he lived it. You’re right in that the world is just not the same without him.
