Each new year I go back and read through the book and watch the video of The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. Randy is a lifetime educator that diligently continues on with his purpose in life as he is dying from cancer. In his unique perspective, he left us with tremendous thoughts and perspectives to think about and to apply for ourselves as we face adversity.
I highly recommend that you stop to collect his thoughts. He finished his life by offering all of them for us to learn from.
“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.” — Randy Pausch —
