In Memoriam: Randy Pausch "Last Lecture" Video

Randy Pausch died yesterday. Here's a tribute in his own words:

I am flattered and embarrassed by all the recent attention to my "Last Lecture." I am told that, including abridged versions, over six million people have viewed the lecture online. The lecture really was for my kids, but if others are finding value in it, that is wonderful. But rest assured; I'm hardly unique. Send your kids to Carnegie Mellon and the other professors here will teach them valuable life lessons long after I'm gone.

-- Randy


Perhaps you've had a similar experience--after speaking to my friends and clients, I've found that Randy Pausch has had a similar introspective effect on them as a national tragedy or death in their own family. All of a sudden they're revisiting their goals, creating bucket lists, and going back to reading or watching "The Secret."

Every once in a while something seems to knock us awake from our sleepwalk through life and say "Wake up! You're missing something! Pay attention to the important stuff!" I have to admit that I've been thinking about it a lot myself recently and wound up blogging on the topic as well-

In fact, we're off to visit my brother and family on Martha's Vineyard this week and we discussed if we could spare the time. My answer was in line with this same line of thinking-- we can't afford NOT to take the time-- what's really important here?
