Randy Pausch, who passed away in 2008, was a professor of Computer Science and Human Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University. Opening his last lecture by exposing “the elephant in the room,” he informs his class of his battle with pancreatic cancer. He shares his unexpectedly positive and humorous wisdom on how to REALLY achieve your childhood dreams.
Touching on family, humility, expression of creativity, the importance of people over things, integrity, sincerity and gratitude, this inspiring and moving lecture sheds light on how to live your life the right way. As easy as it is to go with the grain, Pausch encourages us to reevaluate our talents, childhood dreams, the way we live and our outlook on life.
