Yay, Randy Pausch!
After a string of embarrassments and blunders this week, I was in a foul mood. I'm a loser! I thought, My life is a freaking joke!
Then, by coincidence, I saw this video. It slapped me into shape. My sulking was replaced with awe and wonder. Wow. See for yourself (if you haven't seen it yet.) It's a lecture of wisdom from a terminally ill professor. He's not pleased with the situation, but he refuses to let it ruin his life.
It blew me (and my bad attitude) away.
Note that this is not religious or political. Nor is it New Age silliness.
A longer (and, in my opinion, better) version of the speech can be found here.
