Dr. Randy Pausch’s farewell lecture. Have a good weekend.

My wife is not an email-er. She doesn't send me cute little notes all day; she's a busy attorney. If she needs me she calls, but otherwise we do our jobs with no communication during the day.
Today she sent me this. As rare as the occasion I watched it.

She sent be the version from ABC GMA -
Dying Professor's Lecture of a Lifetime

There are various installation currently on You Tube.

I like this because there was no talk about religion or being saved, except for a death bed conversion to MAC's. He talks about life lessons, life.

Take a look at this when you have time.

Hey Jacob...

I like your new "do"... I'm not sure how long you have had the pad dressed up so nicely... but I like it.

I hope you and your family are doing great.

I have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to do much of anything... 2 kids, a husband and job... I do good to eat and sleep. :)

I hope life is treating you great!!!

I canceled my blog, but it is still up... not sure for how much longer. :)

Some lessons from Randy Pausch’s last lecture that especially moved me:

1. Brick walls are there for a reason: they let us prove how badly we want things.
2. Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
3. Never lose the child-like wonder.
4. If we do something which is pioneering, we will get arrows in the back. But at the end of the day, a whole lot of people will have a whole lot of fun.
5. Be good at something; it makes you valuable.
6. If you live your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself, and the dreams will come to you.
