Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

Very interesting lecture (a bit long, but you don't even notice the 1h) from this guy who is dying from a cancer and wished to give his last lecture. The lecture is about how he achieved his childrood dreams, how he helped others to do that and what he learned in the way. The things he say is kind of self help, and you may or not like it, but what is really interesting is how he delivers the lecture, capturing people's attention with mastery. I definitelly want to learn how to do that - and as I can see, it's a lot about telling stories. People like stories.

It's personally very inspiring because I want to be like this guy myself - NOT dying like a middle-aged man with cancer, but to help people to learn, to improve education by having less books and more group work, to facilitate people in achieving their dreams (what I prefer to call, fulfilling their potential).

I hope I can break, walk around or bend all barriers to do that.
