Dr. Randy Pausch’s Lecture : Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

October 29, 2007

Randy Pausch

I was sent a link to the video of this lecture. I really enjoyed and I thought I’d share it here.

Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who is dying from pancreatic cancer, gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007. In his moving talk, “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.

And here’s a link to Dr. Pausch’s own Web site.

And some coverage in the Wall Street Journal.

Some lessons which especially moved me:

1. Brick walls are there for a reason: they let us prove how badly we want things.
2. Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
3. Never lose the child-like wonder.
4. If we do something which is pioneering, we will get arrows in the back. But at the end of the day, a whole    lot of people will have a whole lot of fun.
5. Be good at something; it makes you valuable.
6. If you live your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself, and the dreams will come to you.
