Do you know Randy Pausch?
He was a professor Computer Science at Carnegie Mellion who learns that he has pancreatic cancer in September 2006 and ultimately given a terminal diagnosis.
Knowing that his time at best was at best 3 to 6 months according to his doctors, he gave a positively inspiring lecture at his school called “The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood’s Dream”. This became a wildly popular video on Youtube.
He also co-authored a booked titled The Last Lecture which became a New York Times Best Seller.
It is a truly inspirational lecture that everyone should see. Our lives are short. Our time is too valuable to waste on people, situations that are toxic to our lives.
Don’t live in the past and waste the present. Live today and don’t give a damn about other people’s opinion of you.
