Great Speech on Following your Dreams

Recommended Posts

I''d encourage everyone to take a look at a lecture given by a computer science professor, who is dying of cancer. In his lecture, he gives a very down-to-earth, meaningful and inspirational talk on following your dreams. A video clip can be found here: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5700431505846055184&q=randy+pausch&total=19&start=10&num=10&so=0&type=search&plindex=6


In his speech, he lists his childhood dreams, and talks about how he''s tried to achieve them. Some he''s been able to achieve, others, he hasn''t. The point he makes is that its the process of not just wanting something, but wanting it so badly that you overcome incredible obstacles to get it. The video is kind of long - his speech is maybe an hour and 15 minutes, but perhaps you can extract key parts to show to and discuss with your scouts.
