Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

I've a Dream

While getting involved in EN105, I notice that there are individual that are always passionate about their work and there are those that took the course just as another academic pursuit.  For the former, you are on my side and for the later, you are losing a big part of your life.  I took up this appointment not just because it another job but out of passion for education.   In view of this, I strongly suggest those that have a dream to have the courage to follow through.  To cheer you up in downtime going through extreme hardship in the pursuit of your dream, I'll like to introduce you to a lecture by Randy Pausch.  His mindset is what we can learn.

Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who is dying from pancreatic cancer, gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving talk, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.
