Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

As you prepare to graduate from college, take some time to ponder over the dreams that you had as a child. They may now be embarrassing to you but that doesn’t stop them from being important in the large scheme of things.

Randy Pausch, the late Professor at Carnegie Mellon, gave his last (and very inspirational lecture) seven years back in 2007. He died of cancer in 2008. In this last lecture, Randy talks about his childhood dreams and how he set about achieving them. The video is a testament to our fragile and uncertain existence as humans and how we can still achieve greatness by following our dreams, no matter how ridiculous or ambitious they sound.

Take an hour off today and do watch this awesome lecture. It will definitely change your life and help you be a better human being.
