Randy Pausch, in this lecture, he describes he has pancreatic cancer, and the doctors said he only had a few months left of good health. Hence, the titled lecture, "The Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams". Randy Pausch died of the age of 47 in 25th July 2008.



In this lecture, he talked about:

1. Achieving own childhood dreams

2. Enabling other people's dreams

3. Lessons learned in life


Here are some good lines highlighted from the lecture:


Arrogance can limit what you can achieve in life.


Brick walls are there to separate us from the people who don't really want to achieve their childhood dreams.


Don't bail; the best gold is at the bottom of the barrels of crap.


Don't complain, just work harder.


"Head fake":

If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself, and the dreams will come to you.
