Randy’s ‘Last Lecture”

word of month character

Today it was announced that Randy Rausch passed away.  Just this past week I read his book, The Last Lecture, by Randy Rausch. It is very inspiring and there are lessons in the book from this very brave man that we can all be reminded of as we face our own troubles.

1. Brick walls are there for a reason:how bad do you really want something?
2. Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you wanted.
3. Never lose your child-like wonder!

I know the link I am about to give you will be very much worth taking the time to watch, though the book does a very good job too. But take the time to watch this video as this man facing death in a matter of just a few months points us in a direction that we can learn from.
Thank you Randy for providing this look into your world as it provides us the opportunity to look into our own world as we face different situations in our lives. Check Out This Video!
It is long (1:44 hrs) but well worth it.  If you read the book or watch the video, please tell me what you liked about it the best.  What did you take from it?

  1. Doug suggested that we ought to, indeed, check this video out. I did, and it is now late, as I couldn’t turn it off. Many of Randy’s words and ideas were challenging and insightful. His idea of “head fakes” reminded me of what your school is all about. His last “head fake” regarding the “true” audience intended for with his talk blew me away. What a privilege to be allowed to “listen in!” Thanks for sharing this!
