There is something about living a real life that is enticing to me. Too many people just get up and go to work and come home and have dinner and go to bed to just rinse and repeat the next day.
I don’t want to do that.
And if I do, please someone do something to snap me out of it.
So awhile back I found two things that really ended up getting me into really thinking about what it is I want out of life. I found them both from Trent Hamm’s website when I was really into learning about debt and other such things.
The first I initially ran into thanks to Upward Bound, that was Tuesdays with Morrie. But the second I found thanks to Trent, and that was Randy Pausch. He gave a truly inspiring lecture, one that even though I can’t quote directly from it, I know that it gave me a desire to change where I was headed. I didn’t want a boring 9-5 job. I didn’t want to get “back to the grind.” Hell I never want to be in the grind in the first place.
But anyways, enough of me rambling on, first a quote from his book The Last Lecture, and then you can watch the video. Now it’s a long’un. But trust me. Watch Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture and you won’t be disappointed.
I always look for the good in people, because how can you say that someone is always bad?
“Find the best in everybody. Just keep waiting no matter how long it takes. No one is all evil. Everybody has a good side, just keep waiting, it will come out.”
― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
