“The Last Lecture”
Hello Dear Followers,
My July book choice is “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. I chose this book a few years ago or so because it reminded me in a lot of ways of books written by Mitch Albom and I thought that this would be an interesting read.
The book tells the story of late author Randy Pausch, who gave his “last lecture” at Carnegie Mellon. According to the book, a lot of professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them. And while they speak, audiences can’t help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy. Mr. Pausch, a computer science professor was asked to give such a lecture, he didn’t have to imagine it was his last since he had been recently diagnosed with terminal cancer.
So while I read this book, I am asking my followers that are reading this post, if you were to vanish tomorrow, what would be your last piece of wisdom you would want as your legacy? I ask that each of you think of that, and I love to hear from all of you about it. I will think it over myself and in my concluding post on the book which I am hoping will be next week, I will tell you all.
I hope you all follow along with me or at least consider this book as a good suggestion for a summer read.
Until next time…
