If you had only six months to live, what would you do? How would you live your life? Some questions these. They will help you put in perspective the things you are doing now and how much they really matter to you? The relations you share, the importance you give to people will become atleast a bit clearer.
Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch’s “The Last Lecture”(link) will definitely stand out as one of the most inspiring lectures to have ever been delivered. It is a rather unusual classroom lecture, with the powerpoint presentations and all. The video became viral and thousands have written on how it inspired them.
“The brick walls are there for a reason,” he said during his lecture. “The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.”
He passed away today, inspiring many on the way to lead complete lives with priorities set right. Here’s praying for his soul to rest in peace.
