This is Professor Randy Pausch who’s video I happened upon tonight and wanted to take the time to share it here. Pausch finds that it is not the duration of our life that is the most important; however, it is more important to fill our lives with passion and love.
We beat the reaper by living well, and living fully… For the reaper will come for all of us. The question is, what do we do between the time that we’re born, and the time that he shows up. Because when he shows up, it’s too late to do all the things that you were always, gunna, kinda get around to.
I don’t think you can really go wrong if you follow those words of wisdom. I try to think of it as creating a life that you would happily and willingly live over and over on purpose.
