Speech by Randy Pausch

"Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who is dying from pancreatic cancer, gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving talk, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals."

This is an amazing, moving, motivating (insert adjective here) speech. I always find it ironic that those who have to stare death in the face learn to appreciate life more than those of us who seemingly take it for granted. If we can all live each day like it's our last, imagine how much can be accomplished on so many different levels. Randy Pausch is a true inspiration... I will use this speech as a reference for the rest of my life.
