Just got done watching Randy Paushc’s last lecture on Youtube and it has to be one of the best videos I’ve watched on Youtube with Lily’s Disneyland Surprise and Ronaldinho’s Golden Touch. It was truly inspiring to hear his life lessons and how he still conducts himself even when he only has a few months left to live. The video is embedded with so many gems that the only way to truly explain it would just be to watch it. The two things I took away from it most was the story he gave about when his coach was riding him extra hard during a practice. One of the coaches said that “When you’re screwing up and nobody saying anything to you anymore, that means they gave up”. He also talked about brick walls are there to see how much you want something. It’s also used to separate you and everybody else; from the ones who are willing to do whatever it takes and the people who will give up easily. I’m very glad that I was referred to this video and that I took the time to watch it. I actually planned it into my calendar and the lessons are something I will keep in mind when I go on in my life. Thank you very much Randy.
Here is a link to the video.
