037: Randy Pausch – The Art Of Being Grateful


itunes-podcast

 

 

gratefulWelcome to another episode of The Dentalpreneur Podcast. In today’s episode I share with you a powerful lecture given by Randy Pausch at Carnegie-Mellon University in 2007.

For those of you that don’t know, at the time Randy had recently been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and given 3 to 6 months of quality life left. The lecture series was called “Last Lecture”, with the premise that if the speaking professor had one lecture to give before dying this would be it. Instead of lecturing about what he would miss, Randy chose to focus and speak about really achieving your childhood dreams. His sincerity and gratitude for the achievements he had experienced is both amazing and humbling. In this week that we celebrate thanks, I sincerely hope you enjoy this episode of The Dentalpreneur.

Randy Pausch received his undergrad degree in Computer Science at Brown University in 1982. He went on to earn his PHD in Computer Science at Carnegie-Mellon University. After teaching at University of Virginia, he later joined the Carnegie-Mellon faculty in 1997. Randy authored/co-authored 5 books and contributed to more than 60 journal reviewed articles. The lecture shared here today became an internet viral phenomenon, resulting in a 10 minute version being shared on “Oprah” and also Randy authoring a book called The Last Lecture prior to his death.
