The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch is a Good Read

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

 I recently completed this wonderful book by Randy Pausch and recommend it as a good, uplifting, quick read. This book as been a NY Times bestseller for many weeks.

I believe that with everything facing us these days, this book is a timely reminder about what is truly important in our lives.

The author was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and given a few short months to live. He was asked to deliver a lecture at Carnegie Mellon as a part of their on-going lecture series.

The lecture became an instant hit on the web and quickly spread around the world. The book is a follow up to the lecture and offers Mr. Pausch’s insights about his life and what he has learned along his journey. It makes you stop and think about your own life and where your priorities should be.

One thing that really stuck with me were his comments to his wife about how she should deal with it when he is gone. The advise he gave her was to, “Put on your oxygen mask before helping others with theirs.” His message is that she must tend to her own feelings, emotions and needs before she will be able to help others, including their children.

That is such great advice for all of us. It is so critical for each of us to pay attention to our own emotions and needs during these challenging times. By doing so, we will be in a much better position to help others. Make your business a success, do a great job at your work, keep your health, wealth and spiritual needs met and you will then be able to be there for others that need you.

I recommend you pick up a copy of this inspiring book. It will give you a lift and help you re-focus on what is really important.

To Your Success,
Dennis
