The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

I read “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch a few years ago and I loved it.  Randy Pausch was a professor at Carnage Mellon.  He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and only had a six months to live.  Before he died, Randy Pausch gave his last lecture at Carnage Mellon.  The advice he gave during the lecture struck a cord with millions of people.

Randy Pausch talked about the importance of family, humility, and working toward your dreams.  There is an abundance of good advice in the book, so I decided to read it again.

While reading the book, I found myself thinking about my own personal goals.  A few years ago, I finished a PhD program and a huge dream of mine was fulfilled.

However, since then I have floundered a bit.  I don’t have another dream or personal goal.  I started thinking about what I want to accomplish next in my life.  I have a some ideas that I am researching.  I will post an update once I get it all straight in my mind and let everyone know what I plan to achieve next in my life.
