Randy Pausch Revisted


I know that I posted Randy Pausch's last lecture a few months ago, but with his death today, I thought it would be a good time to share it again. If you haven't seen the video, or even if you have, I think it is something that everyone can benefit from repeatedly. I give Oprah a whole bunch of crap, but I will say that she could have pulled the video off of YouTube from her show, but has chosen not to. I appreciate that, and hope that you will take Randy's lessons to heart. RIP Randy, and to his wife and three kids, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

He was truly as inspiration to us all. He speech is a real wake up call to all of us who moan and groan anout our lives instead of getting out there and living them.

Rest in Peace Randy.

I just saw the news about his passing on CNN... so sad. But he was so inspiring. I hope that everyone takes to heart what he is saying and lives thier lives with everything they have got!

Remember -
~ "Dance like no one is watching,
love like you'll never be hurt,
sing like no one is listening,
live like it's heaven on earth,
and fart like you're the only one in the elevator"

What an amazing man he was - there are so many words of wisdom in that 10 minute clip. RIP Randy. Many warm thoughts and prayers to your family.

Sad news although not unexpected...I watched the lecture on Oprah, and it really was very inspirational, but the whole show she did on death was actually really good.

I hope his wife and kids will be OK.

I've never seen that before...I'm not an Oprah fan. It was truly moving and a very sad story. RIP.

He was such an inspiring person and so much more left to give to the world. It's just sad his kids didn't have more time to spend with him because he was such an amazing person. My thoughts are with his family.

Wow. All I can say is rest in peace. So sad.

I think Randy Pausch did something so brave, he took something so horrible his own certain death, and ended up making a difference in how people actually can live better lives, be better people and not waste such a precious give. His children will always know him and always be proud.

@irishstayc2. Interesting, I know it that way:
Dance like no one is watching,
love like you'll never be hurt and
f**k like you're being filmed. ;-)

Thank you Enty. As much as I love my guilty pleasures, it's reminders like this that make what is real also what is important.
