“Brick walls are there for a reason they let us prove how badly we want things” said Professor Randy Pauche in his famous lecture “The Last Lecture” (over 6.5 Million youtube dowloads at the time of this post).Randy sadly died on 25 July 2008 but his brief life left an enduring legacy.
Here are some extracts from the lecture..
– Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted
–Be good at something, it makes you valuable
–Don’t complain,just work harder
–Get feedback, and listen to it
–Brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough
–Have something to bring to the table
– Look for the best in everybody
–All you have to do is ask. Don’t be afraid to appear ignorant.
–A bad apology is worse than no apology
–Earnest is better than hip
