Randy Pausch – Part 2, on Good Morning America

Here is Randy Pausch being interviewed on Good Morning America about his ‘last lecture’. More food for thought. I know I’m sort of obsessing about this, but I wonder how I’d behave in the same situation?

  1. 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.Check out the tribute quiz on the lecture at http://www.mystudiyo.com : you can add your own questions at the end of the quiz.http://www.mystudiyo.com/activity.php?act=558
