It’s not about death…but about life, and how to live…

By now, many of you have probably heard of Dr. Randy Pausch and his amazing "The Last Lecture". But, if not, please take a few moments to watch the short video below of Dr. Pausch giving a snippet of "The Last Lecture" to the audience of Oprah.

In the video, you'll hear the inspiring words of a man who is about to die (when the video was shot) of pancreatic cancer…and yet is talking about how to live life well, fully, and with kindness, compassion, and passion.

It is a meDr-randy-pauschssage I believe we all need to be reminded of when times get tough.

My words cannot – and should not – compete with those of Dr. Pausch, who sadly passed away just yesterday, losing his long, valiant battle with cancer.

So, please, watch the video below…listen to Dr. Pausch's words of wisdom. Take his messages…and see how you might apply them to your life, to your dreams. And, if you feel moved to do so, pass it along.

And if this short version only makes you want to hear more – as it did for me – click here to watch the full version as presented to Carnegie Mellon University.

    Rest in peace. What an inspirational man. He really fought all the way and drained every second of life for what it was worth. We should all live like that.
