Remember Your Dreams

July 26, 2008

Randy Pausch, beloved professor at Carnegie Mellon, and an inspiration to everyone who has have ever listened to a word he has spoken, passed away yesterday. Pausch became famous beyond the classroom after giving his Last Lecture. If you have never watched or read his lecture, you should do so immediately. Randy reminded all of us to remember our childhood dreams, pursue them, help others pursue theirs and to be better and kinder to one another. He was a true inspiration and I have kept some of his lessons in the back of my head for the past few months. My favorite of his lessons, “Tell the truth. All the time.”  My second favorite, “Its very important to know when you’re in a pissing match. And its very important to get out of it as quickly as possible.”  He will be missed and remembered.
