You Need To Hear This Lecture

Maybe you have not heard about Randy Pausch’s last lecture.  Randy is a Professor of computer-science at Carnegie Mellon University and is married with a wife and three small children.

There’s a tradition in academic circles called delivering “The Last Lecture.”  The concept is the professor lectures on a subject that is important to them, as if it were their last chance to teach.

Professor Pausch did this.  But his situation is different.  Because he actually is dying of cancer, and has less than 6 months to live.  His lecture is on his life lessons, achieving his dreams, and dealing with the curve balls life sends you.

Please, go listen to the lecture, you will be glad you did.

I welcome your comments,
Mike Brannan
