I’d been meaning to buy Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture book, just ordered from Amazon today, he was very much on my mind. I wondered how he was doing, visited his website, sad to see note posted yesterday that he was doing poorly, in hospice. Then the twitter notices came in. Randy Pausch died today.
Paying tribute to Randy Pausch!
August 2007 he was told he had 3-6 months to live, he made it to end of July 2008.
“We don’t beat the reaper by living longer. We beat the reaper by living well, and living fully, for the reaper will come for all of us. The question is what do we do between the time we are born and the time he shows up. Cause when he shows up it’s too late to do all the things that you’re always were kinda going to get around to.” Randy Pausch
Randy Pausch was very passionate about life, living his dreams, his relationships with others, his love for his family.
In honor of Randy Pausch I challenge each of you to live life to the fullest, not the leave the important stuff undone, to follow his example.
If you haven’t already seen these videos of Randy’s Last Lecture or his lecture on Time Management, they are well worth your time.
