    Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

    andolph Frederick "Randy" Pausch (October 23, 1960 July 25, 200 was an American professor of computer science and human-computer interaction and design at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pausch learned that he had pancreatic cancer, a terminal illness, in September of 2006. He gave an upbeat lecture entitled "The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" on September 18, 2007 at Carnegie Mellon, which became a popular YouTube video and led to other media appearances. He then co-authored a book called The Last Lecture on the same theme, which became a New York Times best-seller. Pausch died of complications from pancreatic cancer on July 25, 2008.

    In his famous speech, Pausch showed a list of his childhood dreams, and explained how he achieved each of them. His dreams were being in zero gravity, playing in the National Football League, being the author of a World Book Encyclopedia article, meeting and being Captain Kirk, being "one of the guys who won the big stuffed animals in the amusement park", and becoming a Disney Imagineer.

    He was given 3 months of life, he lived 3 more years.

    this man is going to die after a few months. he know his time for death. but look at his speech. look at his attitude.

    Attitude - its your reaction towards the actions of life. its the really you. it shows your strength. it shows your behavior towards life.
