Randy Pausch experience

Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieveing Your Childhood Dreams

First off I'd like to start off by saying Randy Pausch is so inspiring. I really like how he shared his childhood dreams and went through every one with us. He showed us exactly how he achieved his goals. I have found what he said about his NFL dream to be very true. "About if people leave you alone and don't tell you what your doing wrong "ride you hard" anymore then they have given up on you." I truly believe that the ones that love and care about you the most will push you the hardest because they want to see you achieve your dreams. I thought it was comical when Paush had the stuffed bears brought out to show for proof. When he got turned down by Disney he didn't get upset he just tried to think of different ways to achieve this goal. To me this is a quality of a role model. I like what Jon Snoddy said, "Wait long enough and people will surprise and impress you." From this video I learned it's okay to run into hardships it makes you stronger and able to do so much more in the end. I enjoyed what Pausch said about enabling others childhood dreams. It's inspiring to know as future educators we can help kids create or make them understand its great to have dreams and if they work hard enough they can achieve them. The projects and worlds that were made were amazing and so cool. I think its great that the "ETC" is going global. "Alice" seems really cool it sounds like its going to be a big hit and being educational is a great aspect! "NEVER GIVE UP" on of the big things that was pushed in this video along with other aspects to success. This video was long, but it was well worth the time to watch it. Especially since it was extremely inspiring if I haven't said that enough.

  1. Kimberly,
    I also thought Randy Pausch was inspiring. I think any person that wants to live life to the fullest need to watch his video.
    I also put about how great the quote was about the football player being pushed hard only because the coach hadn't given up on him. I think it's important for us, as future teachers, to remember that we can't give up on our students either.
    Great post!
