Phenomenal - Randy Pausch

When this man and this man talk, we better listen. When they recommend you to do something, we better do ( Will be too silly, if someone asks me why.. ). I did just that . After a long day ( but fun day ) at work, the best thing i could've done is listen to Randy Pausch speak.

He is just PHENOMENAL. The lecture is about an hour and 25 mins long - please do watch/listen all of it. I stayed awake all through the lecture after a 16 hour day and really wished i could watch the man one more time. The talk is on "Really Achieving your Childhood Dreams "

Some lessons from Randy Pausch’s last lecture that 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.
