Randy Pausch The Ultimate Inner Architect And “Antidote” Part 1

The answer to the question: If you could have dinner with anyone in history who would you choose just changed for me. My choice would be Randy Pausch; but unfortunately that will not be possible.The Carnegie Mellon Professor, and Author of the remarkable and inspiring book “Last Lecture”, fought to the end but lost his battle with cancer passing away at the age of 47.

Life Pioneer

Randy Paush was a life pioneer, an inner architect of the truest sense, who valued and coveted his time here like nobody I have ever witnessed. You can not help but be touched or greatly effected by Randy Pausch. If you watch his greatest triumph (video below) the last lecture the youtube video of his final lecture “Achieving Your Childhood Dreams” performed September 18, 2007 before a packed house at Carnegie Mellon University, you begin to understand the message: live life, embrace your obstacles, and triumph through your will

3 Steps To Considering Purpose A Part Of Life

If you recognize that purpose is a part of life that requires that you believe that there is more going on than what you can see on the surface, then what steps do you take to begin to discover your purpose in life? The following steps give you a sound basis to begin your search.

3 Steps To Consider Purpose As A Part Of Life

1. Energy: Think of purpose as an energy that runs through everything in life–including you. Consider the concept of “gravity.” You can’t see it, yet it exists in all geographic areas at all times

2. Random: Remove the idea that your life is a random series of events. Things are connected

3. Reason: Accept the idea that there is a purposeful reason behind everything in life.

A Plan Of Action Building Block #3: Help Is On The Way

“Action speaks louder than words”
“Fail to plan, plan to fail”
“He/She is all talk”

These phrases are three common American colloquialisms that we have all heard or experienced at one time or another. Yet how often do people forget, ignore, or skip creating a plan of action when attempting to change anything?

In the first two articles in this series we identified awareness and interests as the first steps necessary for you to begin the process of changing your life.

What’s Stopping You?

Ask yourself the reason why you are not creating an action plan and the answers, if you are honest, may surprise you:

1. Spontaneity- thinking you are better off being spontaneous and allowing things to happen is the fastest method to getting no where near your goal to change your life

2. Structure is Confining-the belief that you do not need an outlined road map (plan) because it may restrict the “discovery” process and ultimately your progress, is faulty thinking. Without a plan of action, you will hinder your ability to change, leave yourself without a tool to measure your progress on your new path, and set yourself up for colloquialism #2 “Fail to plan, plan to fail.”

3. How to Plan-most people do not understand the most effective method of producing a plan of action. That is not a problem as long as you realize that you may need help in this process.
