Life Lessons from a Brilliant Man Who Faces Death
Professor Randy Pausch of Carnegie Mellon University gave his final farewell lecture to a group of 400+ faculty and students last week after being informed by cancer specialists that he only had a few months left to live. His attitude is positive, his stories are moving, and his life lessons are priceless.
I have posted a short Wall Street Journal summary clip followed by the lecture in its entirety. Watch the whole lecture when you have a chance. I promise that it is well worth your time.
