One giant says goodbye

Randy Pausch died this morning. Besides his inspiring lecture, the book and his wisdom, he left us with the spirit of ‘going for it’. Leave your comfort zone to try for something you really want. You don’t always have to change the world (Once in a while is perfectly fine). Take smaller risks each day and choose the big ones wisely.  And then give it all and even more, when you take that risk.

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They are there to stop the OTHER people!” – Randy Pausch

It’s been an honor knowing you.

Today, one of the creative team leaders at our office referred to Pausch’s speech today in his feature column, which was about how you should ‘Go for it’, meaning you must leave your comfort zone to try for something you desire. It doesn’t have to be big and earth-shattering. Even smaller risks in life are healthy, and in many ways, no less important than bigger ones.

  1. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family, especially his three beautiful children who were the inspiration for the lecture.
