You may have heard of Randy Pausch, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University who gave a lecture on realizing your childhood dreams last fall. Pausch is dying of pancreatic cancer, and this was the last lecture he gave.
I’m not normally willing to sit and watch a video for an hour and 16 minutes, but this one is so completely worth the time. If you haven’t seen it yet, please do. Because, wow. If you take even one of the lessons he teaches and apply it to your life you’ll be blessing your children indeed.
Pausch’s book, titled The Last Lecture, was published two days ago. It’s now at the top of my must-read list.
