The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

If you knew you were going to die and you had one last lecture, what would you say to your students?

I don’t know. I am not a teacher, hello?

Seriously, when I was a kid, I wanted to become a teacher, a doctor and a sales lady. Guess what, I didn’t become any of those in fact, my specialty is far from those childhood dreams. Now that I am older and matured (I hope), my preferences have changed, what I want now is just plain and simple – to become an inspiration to others. I’m serious. But when I look back at my life, there’s nothing really inspiring at all. LOL. Wait…I’m only 20+, who knows, maybe sooner or later, something could happen that will change my life forever. I have faith you know.

Anyway, here’s one very inspiring book I’d like to recommend to you guys – The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. It’s based on the extraordinary final lecture by Carnegie Mellon University professor Pausch, given after he discovered he had pancreatic cancer. This moving book can definitely inspire you to live your life with purpose and joy. Grab a copy now!

  1. How inspiring Randy Pausch is! If you liked “The Last Lecture”, another fantastic memoir I just read and highly recommend is “My Stroke of Insight” by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. Her TEDTalk video ( has been seen as many times as The Last Lecture I think, and Oprah did 4 shows on her book, so there are a lot of similarities. In My Stroke of Insight, there’s a happy ending though. It’s an incredible story! I hear they’re making it into a movie.
