Really achieving your childhood dreams

Thursday, October 30, 2014

In 2007, Carnegie Mellon professor Randy Pausch, who was dying of pancreatic cancer, delivered a one-of-a-kind last lecture that made the world stop and pay attention. This moving talk will teach you how to really achieve your childhood dreams. Unmissable. (This video was not only an internet sensation viewed by millions, but also a best-selling book available to borrow from RRC Library.)
