I was reading an article today on university selection and it linked out to Randy Pausch’s famous “Last Lecture” at Carnegie Mellon University. It had been a while since I last watched it and decided to watch it again. This lecture never fails to fascinate me. I must have watched it tens of times before, however, I am always able to take something new away from it.
One of the major take aways I get from watching it is, that we have to start living and enjoying our lives today. Life is much too short to keep on planning for the future and putting things off until it is too late. This is definitely something I need to work on and hope to do so this year!
Randy Pausch: “The brick walls are not there to keep us out, they are there to give us a chance to show us how badly we want something.”
