The Last Lecture

In a previous post, I talked about Lance Armstrong and his approach to success … and how he focuses on the positives in his life, even after a serious bout with cancer.

A new book, The Last Lecture, is written by someone not so lucky. He died at a young age.  But before dying, his "last lecture" was videotaped; it inspired many people. They said that "they quit pitying themselves," "the lecture had persuaded them to embrace their own goodbyes," among other responses. The author said that he had "to keep having fun every day I have left, because there’s no other way to play it."
