What would your Last Lecture be?

From today’s WSJ, a great article on a CMU professor’s Last Lecture.

Randy Pausch, a Carnegie Mellon University computer-science professor, was about to give a lecture Tuesday afternoon, but before he said a word, he received a standing ovation from 400 students and colleagues.  He motioned to them to sit down. “Make me earn it,” he said.

Professor Pausch has been diagnosed with 3 months to live and was given the opportunity to address the CMU students with his final thoughts.  What words would you depart with?

    Great quote from the end of the presentation… “It’s not about how to achieve your dreams but about how you lead your life… if you lead your life the right way the karma will take care of itself… the dreams will come to you.”
