Randy Pausch was born on this day in 1960. When diagnosed with pancreatic cancer he gave a lecture entitled The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams. The lecture became a YouTube sensation and later Pausch co-authored The Last Lecture which became a New York Times best-seller.
Pausch was forced with answering the question “what matters most.” He did so eloquently and inspired millions. His experience wasn’t what he wanted. But he made the most of the time he had left.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.Send me to India (seriously).
