The Last Lecture

"I mean I don't know how to not have fun. I'm dying and I'm having fun. And I'm going to keep having fun every day I have left. Because there's no other way to play it," he said in his Carnegie Mellon lecture.

'Last lecture' professor dies of cancer - Education-

Professor Randy Pausch, author of best seller book The Last Lecture, dies. He leaves us with a strong message to achieve our childhood dreams and have fun, because in the end we might not have as much time as we think.

Often we are advised to live as if it was our last days. The Last Lecture offers a genuine perspective as its author was fighting terminal disease. I have yet to read the book and I look forward to.

That is such good advice, but we get so caught up in life that we find it difficult to do unless we are told we have a terminal illness- putting everything into perspective.
