Zitate Randy Pausch

„If I could only give three words of advice, they would be, "tell the truth." If I got three more words, I'd add: "All the time."“

—  Randy Pausch, buch The Last Lecture

Quelle: The Last Lecture (2008), Chapter 48: Tell the Truth, p. 163

„Its important to have specific dreams. Dream Big. Dream without fear.“

The Last Lecture (2008)

„Find your passion and follow it.“

—  Randy Pausch

CMU Graduation speech (2008)
Kontext: You will need find your passion. Many of you have already done it, many of you will later, many of you may take to your thirties or forties, but don't give up on finding it. Right, then all you are doing is waiting for the reaper. Find your passion and follow it. And if there is anything that I have learned in life, you will not find that passion in things. And you will not find that passion in money. Because the more things and the more money you have, the more you will just look around and use that as the metric — and there will always be someone with more. Your passion must come from the things that fuel you from the inside. And honors and awards are nice things, but only to the extent that they regard real respect from your peers. And to be thought of well by people you think of more highly up is a tremendous honor I've been granted. Find your passion, and in my experience, no matter what you do at work or what you do in in official settings, that passion will be grounded in people. It will be grounded in the relationships you have with people and what they think of you when your time comes.

„It's not how hard you hit. It's how hard you get hit…and keep moving forward.“

„Did you figure out the second head fake? This talk's not for you. It's for my kids.“

The Last Lecture (2007)

„You can always change your plan, but only if you have one..“

—  Randy Pausch, buch The Last Lecture

Variante: You can always change your plan, but only if you have one.."

„And as you get older you may find that enabling-the-dreams-of-others thing is even more fun.“

—  Randy Pausch, buch The Last Lecture

The Last Lecture (2007)
Kontext: So what is today's talk about then? It's about my childhood dreams and how I've achieved them — I've been very fortunate that way; how I believe I've been able to enable the dreams of others, and to some degree, lessons learned: I'm a professor — there should be some lessons learned — and how you can use the stuff you hear today to enable your dreams or enable the dreams of others. And as you get older you may find that enabling-the-dreams-of-others thing is even more fun.

„Time is all you have and you may find one day that you have less than you think.“

„My dad was so full of life, anything with him was an adventure.“

—  Randy Pausch, buch The Last Lecture

The Last Lecture (2007)
Kontext: My dad was so full of life, anything with him was an adventure. [Shows picture of his Dad holding a brown paper bag] I don’t know what’s in that bag, but I know it’s cool. My dad dressed up as Santa Claus, but he also did very, very significant things to help lots of people. This is a dormitory in Thailand that my mom and dad underwrote. And every year about 30 students get to go to school who wouldn’t have otherwise. This is something my wife and I have also been involved in heavily. And these are the kind of things that I think everybody ought to be doing. Helping others.

„Wait long enough and people will surprise and impress you.“

—  Randy Pausch, buch The Last Lecture

When Pausch spoke of "when you’re screwing up and nobody’s saying anything to you anymore, that means they gaveup." he was quoting Jon Snoddy http://www.snoddy.net/
The Last Lecture (2007)
Kontext: Wait long enough and people will surprise and impress you. He said, when you are pissed off at somebody, and you're angry at them, you just haven't given them enough time. Just give them a little more time — and they'll almost always impress you. And that really stuck with me. I think he's absolutely right on that one.

„You get people to help you by telling the truth; by being earnest. I'll take an earnest person over a hip person every day, because hip is short-term, earnest is long term.“

—  Randy Pausch, buch The Last Lecture

The Last Lecture (2007)
Kontext: How do you get people to help you? You can’t get there alone. People have to help you and I do believe in karma. I believe in paybacks. You get people to help you by telling the truth; by being earnest. I'll take an earnest person over a hip person every day, because hip is short-term, earnest is long term.
