Prof. Pausch "Last Lecture" - Inspirational, Awesome Life Lessons

Few weeks back, I posted about a TED talk by Jill Bolte Taylor about the power to choose who we are and what we can achieve in this world. I just finished watching Prof. Randy Pausch "Last Lecture", he gave at CMU last year and probably many of you must have already seen it by now. Its truely one of the most inspirational talk I have seen and that there is so much more to learn and live life. I can't even begin to summarize the talk, every moment / slide of the talk has to offer something, and a lesson to be learn. And it had so many things which sometimes I think sub-conciously but somehow never show' and do. Things don't always turn out as you expect but we need to make the best of what we got.

Excerpt from Slides:

  • Show Gratitude
  • Don’t complain; just work harder
  • Find the best in everybody; no matter how you have to wait for them to show it
  • Be prepared: “luck” is where preparation meets opportunity
  • Listen to Others
  • Focus on Others and not just yourself
  • Help Others
  • You can't get there alone, "Karma"

  • Please do watch the talk, it will help us make this world a better place for us and everyone in the world. The stories / life lessons / life expriences / work / having fun / dreams / respect / friends / parents / family / mentors / loyalty etc. etc. told by Prof. Pausch are worth keeping and using in one life.
