Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.

In September 2007, Carnegie Mellon Professor of compter science Randy Pausch gave his last lecture at the university entitled "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams". The lecture was part of a series conceived to ask academics "what wisdom would you try to impart to the world if you knew it was your last chance?" Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals. The lecture went on to become an Internet success with over 3 million hits on you tube alone.

Sample quote:"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!"
