Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who is dying from pancreatic cancer, and had three to six months left to live when he gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007. In his moving talk, “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals. The talk is dedicated to his three young children who will never have a chance to have him walk them through life. Though long, this video is completely captivating. I needed tissue at the end.
