Achieving childhood dreams

Randy Pausch’s talk on achieving his dreams. Towards the end of the talk Randy says that we can not do it all alone and we need help there:

  • tell the truth
  • be earnest
  • apologise when you screw up
  • focus on others, not yourself
  • don’t bail; the best gold is at the bottom of barrels of crap
  • get a feedback look and listen to it.The hard part is to listen
  • show gratitude
  • don’t complain, work hard
  • find the best in everybody; no matter how much you have to wait for them to show it
  • help others
  • loyalty is a two-way street
  • never give-up

‘Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted’
‘Indirect learning or head fake learning is very important’

‘Wait long enough and people will surprise and impress you’
