Looking Back, Looking Ahead

“I don’t know how not to have fun. I’m dying and I’m still having fun. I’m going to keep on doing it, too, until my last breath.”  Randy Pausch 

What if you knew the approximate date of your death, what would you do and say in the time you had left? Would you go on a spending spree, travel and indulge yourself similar to what the character in Queen Latifah’s movie Last Holiday did? Would you spend time with family or alone in reflection?

Professor Randy Pausch gave a farewell lecture that is touching, inspiring and a pretty good blueprint for all of us. He’s not dying, not really. He’s living!

His words made me think about what I’m doing with the time I have on this earth.
