Blog Post 8
When I clicked the link to watch the YouTube video Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams and then saw that it was an hour long I dreaded watching the video. Though within the first ten minutes I had my full attention to watching the video. I really enjoyed the video. It really made me stop and think about the question what can we learn from him.
He talked about several little things that stuck out and made me think about things in life. For instance, when he said "When someone tells you what you're doing wrong instead of letting you keep doing it wrong means they care." Right after he said that, one thing popped in my head, the volleyball team I coach. I can tell them that they're doing something wrong with their arm swing a million times. I don't do this because I'm mad at them, I do it because I care about them and want them to fix it so it will make them a better player. We learn who really wants it, when he made the comment "brick walls stop the people who don't want it bad enough," I can learn from this because just doing the work won't get you through, you have to be involve, prove, and show how bad you want whatever it is your trying to accomplish.
