Randy Pausch (1960-2008) is one of my most favorite people who lived. I have learned so many life lessons from his “Last Lecture” book. If you have not heard of Randy, take the time to look him up, listen to the “Last Lecture” on YouTube, and read his book.
You will be motivated and inspired to live your life to it’s fullest. Today I thought I would share a few of Randy’s quotes on how to improve your life.
Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
