Mindmap of Randy Pausch's Last Lecture

Mike Krsticevic has created a great mindmap based on Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture.  

At the age of only 45 (in Sept 2006), Professor Pausch was told that only 4% of pancreatic cancer sufferers (of which he was now diagnosed as one) lived for 5 years after their diagnosis. At the time of the “Last Lecture”, due to his deteriorating medical condition, Professor Pausch was told his odds had reduced to 3 to 6 months of good health left (at best). 

I have spent 3 hours preparing the mind map for you (including the time spent re-watching the video) and I have learnt so much more by being actively involved. For this reason I strongly recommend that you take the time to read and study the mind map after you watch the video. I believe it will be well worth your time

If you haven’t seen this video, I highly recommend watching this.  It’s about 1:15 long, so watch it over lunch or when you have enough time, but it is truly inspirational.

You can download the PDF from Mike’s site.

Let me encourage you by quoting what the author has said here : "For this reason I strongly recommend that you take the time to read and study the mind map after you watch the video. I believe it will be well worth your time. "
Why not try your own to do this. It's a fun thing to try. Anyway, there is no harm in trying.

I had the good fortune of catching The Last Lecture on my local PBS station recently. I was extremely moved, and also challenged to regard the brick walls in my life differently. However, I wondered about the brick walls that don’t go away or that overcome you instead of vice versa.
