Randy Pausch: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams


Computer Science Professor Randy Pausch, who has been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer (see his blog for details), gave his last lecture at Carnegie Mellon University last week. He gives excellent advice on how to live your life and achieve your most outrageous dreams. It’s a must see for entrepreneurs, and really anyone looking for a refresher course on living life to achieve your maximum creative potential. My favorite quote from the video is when he talks about brick walls impeding your march towards goals. They’re to stop other people, he says, and overcoming them just proves to you how much you want something.

Thanks to Paul Bragiel, the founder of Meetro, for sending this to me and a recommendation to spend an hour and a half watching it. I’ve now seen it twice, and think it is worth sharing with our readers.
