There are some amazing people who have lived in the world, and one of them is Randy Pausch.
“It’s not about how to achieve your dreams. It’s about how to lead your life. If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you.” – Randy Pausch
You can tell these words came from a truly inspirational person. Randy Pausch was somebody who I have never been familiar with until the past few days when he unfortunately died at 47 from cancer.
Dr. Pausch was a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon University, but he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Dr. Pausch is famous for an inspirational lecture he gave in September 2007. The lecture was a fair-well lecture to the university, and was a tradition for all leaving professors to give before they retired. The lecture has been viewed by well over 5 million people on You tube. Time Magazine had even named Dr. Pausch as one of the Top 100 influential people in the world.
When you watch even a snippet of his speech you would understand why he was so inspirational. Dr. Pausch had a love for life which was bursting from within him. You can almost feel his intense passion for life.
Watch the tribute video from CBS below and you will start to see why I think Dr. Pausch was such an inspirational person.
Several blogs and publications have also posted articles and tributes to Dr Pausch. Here are just a few.
