The Last Lecture

In 2007 Professor Randy Pausch, a terminal cancer patient and Professor at Carnegie Mellon University, delivered his last lecture titled “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams”. Sadly Randy passed away several months later, but what is clear from this incredibly moving, funny and inspirational lecture is how full a life he lived in his 47 years on Earth and how he was able to achieve all his childhood dreams (even the seemingly impossible ones). It’s becoming a bit of a cliche but in todays disposable world we do seem to place far too much importance on money and material goods, whilst forgetting we should do the things we enjoy each day, especially when these acts can also enrich the lives of others.
