I came across the book this man wrote about this part of his life, including this lecture. Highly recommended. Some personal experience in this arena, so makes it more meaningful to me, but some concrete principles that are great life motivators.
Check it out.
 
INSPIRATION - At its finest
So a friend of mine +J. Hancock shared a video with me. I have to tell you this is one of the best videos I have seen.

100% Inspiration

Go watch this: Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

A lecture from Randy Pausch, Carnegie Mellon Professor entitled "Really Achieving your Childhood Dreams"

Artists, engineers, teachers.... this is the stuff...
Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Audit...

Alright! Here's some good news! (yes both announcements - the new ipad3 and the give-away)
 
IF Apple announces the new iPad today... I'll give one away!

UPDATE! IT was announced! I'll order it today, they ship on March 16th so when I get it, I'll send it to the winner!

Here is how to enter:

1) You gotta have me in a Circle. Got that? Cool.
2) Publicly share this post!

That's it! So, if you want to be one of the first people to get your hands on an iPad3 here is your first chance!!! I'll announce the winner one week from today.

Oh, and this is only for US and Canada folks. Sorry! I love you guys across the pond but shipping is very, very difficult and expensive for these types of things.

PS - For those of you who are skeptical, YES - I really am giving away the new iPad. And +Cali Lewis and I give away stuff all the time. Most of the time we get things donated because of our show (GeekBeat.TV), but in this case I'm paying for the new iPad out of my own pocket and one of you lucky souls will win it. Enjoy!

PS Again! - I got the order in! Here's a sneak peak: https://plus.google.com/109938202835872364257/posts/P9RQ38Li5aB

I love soccer (football). Nice to see a video of a different kind of highlight. I'm impressed with Messi.
 
Have to say... this is much more satisfying than the video of Ronaldo scoring a lucky goal with his back heal.

Should be shown to all soccer kids: Great players don't dive.
