A Tigger's Life-In Appreciation Prof. Randy Pausch

"The brick walls are there for a reason, they are there to determine how much we want our dreams... the brick walls are not there to keep us out but to show how badly we want something ...brick walls let us show our dedication... they are there to separate us from those who really don't want to achieve..." Prof. Randy Pausch 1960-2008
On September 18,2007 Carnegie Mellon professor
Dr. Randy Pausch gave his "Last Lecture--"(titled such as a tradition at Carnegie Mellon,ironically, if you had one last lecture to give before you die--- what would it be about)-Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.

A boyishly handsome, self-deprecatingly funny, brilliant and charming presence who stood before an over flowing crowd in a lecture hall at his beloved Carnegie Mellon University to talk about realizing dreams---how you can achieve your dreams and enable the dreams of others. Dreams would seem an interesting subject for a man dying of cancer to talk about, but Randy Pausch was not lecturing on dying, he was about living and that day he "head faked" his audience by giving a lecture about how to live your life. The little boy who had painted his dreams on his bedroom wall had grown up to teach millions who have since viewed or read his lecture how to live their lives and how to dream. "You just have to decide if you're a Tigger or an Eeyore", he said...pretty simple, huh!?
