Of stuffed bears, brick walls, dreams and lesssons learnt!

I recommend everyone listens to Randy Pausch's last lecture. If not for anything else, just for his brilliant eloquence -- The Six Minutes blog, calls him the best communicator of 2008. I completely agree -- Randy's last lecture is the best speech I've ever heard. I tried doing a tag cloud (Seth Godin style!) of his speech and you'll see that he talks about people, carnegie, dreams, work and many other things about his life.


I love some of his quotes from the speech:
  • Brick walls are there for a reason; they help prove how badly we want something.
  • If there's an elephant in the room introduce it.
  • You cant change the cards you've been dealt, you can only change the way you play the hand.
  • Inspiration and permission to dream is huge.
  • Experience is what you get when you didnt get what you wanted!
  • I can show them the bears!
  • Everything that can go wrong will go wrong.
  • Wait long enough and people will surprise and impress you.
  • I dont know what's in that bag but I know its cool.
  • Brick walls help us show our dedication to people we love.
  • Dont bail; the best gold is at the bottom of barrels of crap.

Be convinced that there are so many more of these in that 80 minute roller coaster. If you haven't watched the video watch it here - 10 million others already did!
