If you haven’t heard of him before, Dr Randy Pausch is an inspirational academic who is dying of cancer. His Farewell Lecture is something you need to see.

Some of the things he says in this lecture are:

  • The brick walls that are in our way are there for a reason. They are not there to keep us out: they are there  to give us a way to show how much we want it.
  • Live with integrity.
  • Choose to have fun (even when you’re dying).
  • Be a Tigger, not an Eeyore.
  • When you screw up, apologize.
  • Apologize properly.
  • People are more important than things.
  • Learn to work and play well with others.
  • Show gratitiude.
  • Don’t complain: just work harder.
  • If you live properly, the dreams will come to you.

Go and watch this amazing, inspirational, incredible lecture now. You will not regret it.

Once you’ve watched it, I’d like you to do two things:

  1. Send it to everyone you know, and
  2. Donate what you can to cancer research.

 I’d be really happy to hear what you think of the lecture, and that you’ve done those two things. Please let me know you have done so by leaving a comment.
