Goodbye, Mr. Pausch
The man lived life like he was dying. Here is CNN’s write up: http://www.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/books/07/25/obit.pausch/index.html. Here’s what my favorite second brain has to say: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randy_Pausch. Interesting man.
If you haven’t seen Professor Randy Pausch’s, “Last Lecture” on You Tube – do so. You can find it here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ji5_MqicxSo. It’s about an hour and seventeen minutes long so grab a cup of coffee (or tea if you are so inclined) and watch it. Oh sure you can just do the snippets which are poignant enough but for the full picture of who the man was and the message that he spent the rest of his life getting across you’ve got to watch the whole thing.
This is not a dress rehearsal – live your life.
