Every now and then I come across someone who's smart, genuine, happy, passionate, honest, unselfish, a good father, and has something powerful to say. It's rare but it does happen. Meet Randy Pausch, 47 years old and a very popular teacher at Carnegie Mellon University. He's all those things I mentioned above, and much more, but there is a sad twist to the story. Randy is dying, he's dying fast.
You can go to his simple homepage for some more information but let me just say what an incredibly inspirational person he is. Randy has pancreatic cancer and only months to live. Still, he's full of life and has so many great lessons to share. Not just any lessons, real life lessons. Stories which will benefit anyone and make you want to become a better person.
The video is long, about an hour, but it's an amazing hour. Grab a drink and sit down and watch it. You won't regret it.
