Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon University professor who became famous for his “Last Lecture”, has died at the age of 47.
I applaud Randy for two things:
1. When told that he had six months to live, Randy chose to focus on the LIVING part and not the dying part! So many of us make the opposite choice.
2. Randy took a very selfless approach to the precious time that he had left and generously used his experience to help others examine their own lives and priorities.
And that’s what the Power of Mortality™ is all about!
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.Comments
