What wisdom would we impart to the world if it were our last chance? At many colleges and universities, their best professors are asked to participate in a series in which they are to give a lecture as if it were their last. For one professor, it’s more than a hypothetical exercise. Randy Pausch, a professor of computer science at Carnegie-Mellon University, jokes that he “nailed” it. Professor Pausch has pancreatic cancer and doctors estimate he only has a few weeks or months left to live.
Watch excerpts of his inspirational lecture, courtesy of WallStreetJournal.com. Professor Pausch says, “If I don’t seem as depressed or morose as I should be, sorry to disappoint you.”
Watch his entire lecture, “Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.”
