Article Shared by Atul Shinde. Thank you!

Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008)

Randy Pausch was a professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer at 47 and survived more than 10 months before he lost his battle this past July. Randy gave his last lecture at CMU on Sept 18, 2007, before several hundred in a packed McConomy Auditorium. The Last Lecture was his farewell speech to the CMU students and has been acknowledged as one of the finest inspirational discourse.

In his moving presentation, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals. This video has now been viewed on YouTube by millions of people. It’s enormously inspiring, tear-rendering and well worth your time if you haven’t seen it. Click below to see the video.
