To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult. – Goethe
Do you focus on fundamentals? I mean life’s basic truths? Can you imagine the success you’d achieve if you’d embrace a lifestyle as Goethe suggests?
These are the things that set people on a trajectory for greater peace and contentment. Or not. Put up or shut up.
Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture. In ten days, one year will have passed since Randy left our earthly world for his next journey, perhaps a heavenly world.
We will probably start to see news media marking this anniversary. In advance of this, I’d like to share his original You Tube Last Lecture.
Randy Pausch’s story inspired me, and I’m an already inspired kind of guy. And not only me, but millions of others, to recapture some excitement, and commitment, to our childhood dreams.
What did it for me was his attitude towards awful news – “You have three to six months to live”.
Whether you are unfamiliar with his story, or know it well, I challenge you to view The Last Lecture this weekend.
We can all be thankful he gave such an inspiring Last Lecture, although I’m sorry he had to.
Living with regret must be a painful exit from this world. Do something, now, while you still can. Follow a childhood dream to completion. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
