"Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" and "Time Management" by Randy Pausch
Achieving Your Childhood Dreams
If you haven’t heard of Randy Pausch, it’s time you get familiar. His straight forward talks about how to achieve your childhood dreams and how to better manage your time are super entertaining and educational as hell. He really explains how he Made Cool Shit and how to get past some of the “Brick Walls” that people and society put up to try and stop you. He even talks a bit about being an Imagineer at Disney, (which was one of my childhood dreams).
Yeah, each movie is about an hour long, but here is a tip. Try watching these videos tonight instead of watching reality crap or formulaic dramas on TV. Trust me, you will be way more entertained and educated at the end of one of Randy’s talks that you will be at the end of “So you think you can Dance”.

Randy was amazing! When I first stumbled upon these videos I was so positively shocked, he ignite my will to change and take effective decisions about my life!
Thanks so much for that. It really puts things in perspective, especially now that I have kids.
I’ve told you this before, your blog is more interesting than school. Thanks Nick!
maybe I’m wrong – but is it really worth achieving your childhood dream? I mean, nowadays I know even more stuff I’d love to do besides controlling a dredge…
in addition to that I think some dreams should stay dreams – otherwise you have nothing to dream of, right?
It’s not about achieving your childhood dreams, but about how to lead your life.
I think the speech is more about knowing that you can LOVE your job and your life. It’s about not ending up in a job you hate.
Have you guys read his book ”Last Lecture”? It truly gives you a perspective on things. He’s a pure genius!
I love hearing about people who continue to pursue what they love and find interesting, each and every day.
I think he tried to remind everyone to not only focus on what you love, but to collaborate and form relationships with other people while doing. It makes life much fuller.
Thanks for posting!
Wow, what an inspiring character! I gave him a round of applause after that first lecture, loved it. Thanks for the heads up on this.
the epitome of what “IT” is all about.
