Great New York Times profile of Randy Pausch and his Last Lecture. You may have seen its link circulating a few months ago called “Dying 47-year-old professor’s last lecture”.
I watched this a while ago, and I’m happy to see that Randy’s still alive. It’s great — you should really sit down and watch it sometime. (It’s a bit over an hour. Wait until you have the time it deserves.)
Even though he’s tragically dying of pancreatic cancer, it’s truly inspiring. Randy Pausch makes us remember that life is short, and we shouldn’t delay achieving our dreams. He didn’t, and although he’ll most likely die within months, he lived a full, happy life, despite being cut short.
Our time is limited. What have you been putting off? What are you waiting for?
