Watching television the other day I enjoyed a commercial. I am not losing my marbles. The GotoUni commercial is set to lyrics or a poem in a very ‘The Streets,’ type of genre. Visually the ad is not bad, little more than a photstpry, but its the lyrics that impressed me, but I am sure there is a lesson in there somewhere… students creating their own ‘Life is a Great Thing’ video? What would they put in their video?

‘We can not change the cards we are dealt, just the way we play the hand.’
Taken from Randy Pausch’s presentation ‘Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.’
Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who is dying from pancreatic cancer, gave his last lecture at his University Sept. 18, 2007. In his moving talk, Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals. Its worth a watch. Randy continues to write, inspire and strive for his dreams.
