Remarkable Lectures : Randy Pausch

Source: A Beloved Professor Delivers The Lecture of a Lifetime  (WSJ)

Interesting aspects to learn from the speech. Brick walls are there for a reason; to see how bad you want something to be done. How bad you want to succeed no matter what is thrown at you. So in turn, brick walls are there to filter out.

Some lessons from Randy Pausch’s last lecture that especially moved me:

1. Brick walls are there for a reason: they let us prove how badly we want things.
2. Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
3. Never lose the child-like wonder.
4. If we do something which is pioneering, we will get arrows in the back. But at the end of the day, a whole lot of people will have a whole lot of fun.
5. Be good at something; it makes you valuable.
6. If you live your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself, and the dreams will come to you.
