To live life well
A good man shares his
insight and experience
This is one of the most fascinating and moving talks I've ever heard in my life.
It's made all the poignant by the fact that the speaker has been told by his doctors that he has left than six months to live.
In an age of faked sentiment, shallow posturing and manufactured accomplishments, it's refreshing to see a man who chose to spend his life working hard, thinking deeply and sharing generously.
Internet "gurus" sell lifestyle. This man talks about having a life.
It's a "long" video, but I'd be shocked if this is not the best hour and 44 minutes you've spent in a very long time.
Comments from the speaker, Professor Randy Pausch, Carnegie Mellon University:
"Almost all of us have childhood dreams: for example, being an astronaut, or making movies or video games for a living.
Sadly, most people don't achieve theirs, and I think that's a shame. I had several specific childhood dreams, and I've actually achieved most of them. More importantly, I have found ways, in particular the creation (with Don Marinelli), of CMU's Entertainment Technology Center (etc.cmu.edu), of helping many young people actually *achieve* their childhood dreams.
This talk will discuss how I achieved my childhood dreams (being in zero gravity, designing theme park rides for Disney, and a few others), and will contain realistic advice on how *you* can live your life so that you can make your childhood dreams come true, too."
All I can say is that he massively undersells the value of what he offers in this marvelous talk.
