Insprational Speech by Dr. Randy Pausch: The Last Lecture

I stumbled upon this lecture by Dr. Randy Pausch and thought it was really a good inspiring lecture to share with everyone. What happened was that Dr Randy Pausch has only a couple of months to live and he gave a last lecture to his students. It became popular and he was subsequently invited to share more of his story...

It kind of bring back the memories of why we had started out Pitstop Cafe. It was simply to achieve a dream.

I remember having an online discussion with one particular folk. During the discussion, we had different view points. So he said, "No offense, but how long had you run your cafe? I been an entrepreneur for x amount of years and invited to schools to give talk..." I guess his point is that he being an entrepreneur represent some superiority.

I feel that many folks oversell the idea of being an entrepreneur. In my opinion, it is just one of the many possible paths to achieving one dreams.

You don't need to be an entrepreneur to realize your dreams.

I hope the video is an inspiration to everyone to continuously strive for their dreams no matter what you are doing! So do share your dreams and let us know how you manage to realize it!

How inspiring Randy Pausch is! If you liked "The Last Lecture", another fantastic memoir I just read and highly recommend is "My Stroke of Insight" by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. Her TEDTalk video (ted.com) has been seen as many times as The Last Lecture I think, and Oprah did 4 shows on her book, so there are a lot of similarities. In My Stroke of Insight, there's a happy ending though. It's an incredible story! I hear they're making it into a movie.
