Are you working on your childhood dreams?

In case you haven’t had the chance to watch this video in the last decade, The Last Lecture of Prof. Randy Pausch is something you need to listen to. There is no guarantee that it will change your life, although several hundred thousand people will attest that it has, but at the very least, it will make you stop and think about your purpose in life, and whether you are doing what you really want to be doing: achieving your childhood dreams.

You will need time, and silence, which is why I am sharing this on a Sunday. So grab a cup of tea or coffee, snuggle under a blanket, and listen.

Really listen.

The Last Lecture, Prof. Randy Pausch

Childhood dreams don’t belong in the past. They serve as inspiration, springboards to something bigger and greater that you were destined for. You may have buried some of them, for whatever reasons, and that is fine because Life tends to get in the way of achieving your dreams sometimes. But don’t keep them there.

Every time I listen to Prof. Pausch, may he rest in peace, I pick up something new and valuable from this lecture. If all else fails and you don’t have the patience nor the inclination to watch the entire video, the book is brilliant, available also in Spanish (La Ultima Leccion) and German (Last Lecture – Die Lehren mines Lebens).
