The Last on The Last Lecture
Here’s an update for a guy mentioned a couple times here and on numerous other blogs you probably read. He’s worth noting again, with a couple new videos.
Randy Pausch died today. He is the 47-year-old Carnegie Mellon professor with terminal cancer who gave a ‘last lecture,’ titled Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams, in September 2007. It was really a message to his three young children. Randy had 3 to 6 months to live, and lasted 11.
Here again is his original Last Lecture to his kids (1 hour, 16 minutes)…
The Last Lecture is also available in book form at Amazon.
Here is Randy’s commencement speech given just two months ago on How to Live Your Life Well (6 minutes, 30 seconds).
And here’s an unusual one… a lecture on time management from someone without much time… oriented toward students and professionals, but really applicable to everyone (1 hour, 16 minutes). The end is especially good, starting at 1:11:30.
