Today I’m dedicating my post to Randy Pausch, the father who died last week of cancer. I’m sure most of you have heard all about Randy by now. Over the past 10 months he has been dying of pancreatic cancer. He was first given 3-6 months to live, but went to extreme measures to make every day count and to get as many extra days as he could with his family (a wife and three young children).
My husband met Randy once during a business meeting and says that he is just as nice in person as he seems on TV.
What Pausch has left us is a reminder to make every day count. If you only had 3-6 months to live, what would you do? How would you spend today? He gave “The Last Lecture,” last fall and wrote a book by the same title. Watch it. Read it. Then, decide how you’ll spend the rest of your life.
- Buy the book, “The Last Lecture.”
