Have DREAMS and live a life with NO REGRET!

Kung Hei Fat Choy! prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /

 

In the Spring festival, it may not be a good time to talk

about “death”, but let us face it: we are all born with

the inevitable destiny to die, right?  So, why waste

any time and not live every minute of our lives to the

fullest - to LOVE; LAUGH; CRY; LEARN; THINK;

PRAYand to REACH OUT FOR OUR DREAMS!?

 

Following is a video of the 47-yr-old Prof. Randy Pausch

whohas been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer

and was told in August 2007 to expect a remaining three

to six months of good health only…

 

On September 18, 2007, Prof. Pausch delivered his

"Last Lecture",entitled

at prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /Carnegie Mellon University. 

This talk was modeled after an ongoing series of

lectures where top academics are asked to think deeply

about what matters to them, and then give a hypothetical

"final talk", i.e., "what wisdom would you try to impart

to the world if you knew it was your last chance?"

 

Personally, I found this a very positive and uplifting life

story that is worth listening to.  The video is 1 hr 44 min

long.  You may skip the introduction to save you some

time.

 

Once again, may I take this opportunity to wish everyone

a HAPPY, HEALTHY & SUCCESSFUL Year of the

Ratfull of LOVEand DREAMS !

Hi Etchy: No. It's not heavy. If you have a spare hour, take a look at the video. It is funny, uplifting and inspiring. Incidentally, Prof. Pausch is still ALIVE and writing blogs everyday. He really is living his life to the fullest...
