- Live like you mean it, Live your dreams......Last Updated: 8/8/2013
First you need to identify them...what are your dreams? What were your childhood dreams? There lived a man who shared his story. His name was Randy Pausch. He was a professor of computer science at Carnagie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburth, PA. He lived from Oct 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008. He died of complications from pancreatic cancer at the age of 47, and is survived by his wife and their three young children. He gave a lecture called, "The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" on Sept 18, 2007. It has been viewed 16,055,012 as of today (8/8/13). His lecture was created as he contemplated what wisdom he would want to impart to his children after he was gone. I have viewed it myself at least 5 times. You should watch it. It's about an hour and 15 minutes, so get yourself a cup of coffee or a glass of water and relax.
His book is titled the same, The Last Lecture, and tells the story of how he came to create the lecture and why. It became a best-seller and has sold more than 400,000 copies and been translated into 46 languages. In May 2008 he was listed by Time as one of the Word's Top-100 Most Influential People. You can google some of Randy's other lectures on youtube. I loved the one on time management.
What would you say to those you love if you knew you had limited time left with them? What would you want them to know? First and foremost I want people to know how much I love them and treasure them.
Aren't you glad people last forever?
