“Every man dies. Not every man really lives.” ~William Ross Wallace~
There are great men and woman…and then there are great ones. One such man has just passed away at 47, but his wisdom, courage and intelligence lives on. Randy Pausch’s final lecture at Carnegie Mellon University. I was touched by the speech in a very deep way.
We all need to think of our legacy. What would you want people to say over your casket? Write down ten ideas of what you would want others to say about you. Look at it. Picture it in your mind. And then go out and do your best to make it true.
Time is long and time is short. Live it fully to your last breath. Get inspired now by (re)watching that special moment at Carnegie Mellon. It can’t help but touch you in a profound way.
