A blog for the work-at-home professional by a work-at-home professional.


The person that can best teach us about time management is someone who is dying, because he or she has very little time left and thus really knows how precious time is.  Randy Pausch was a computer science professor at the University of Virginia who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2006.  He was told in 2007 that he had only six months to live, but he managed to outlive the doctor's prognosis.  Before his death in 2008, he spent his remaining days delivering inspiring lectures.  To this day, he remains an inspiration to me and to millions of others all over the world.

Below is a summarized version of his hour-long lecture:

I find his style of delivery so engaging that I did not mind listening to the whole lecture.  In this lecture, he not only taught some life lessons but shared some practical time management tips as well. If you're interested, you can listen to the lecture in its entirety by clicking HERE.

If you'd like to get a copy of the slides he used in the lecture, you can go to the site where you can download them by clicking HERE.

Dr. Pausch also delivered his famous lecture, "The Last Lecture" on Oprah.  You can watch the video by clicking HERE.

Now, it's one thing to listen to the lecture and another to put the lessons into practice.  I hope that you will enjoy the lectures and find them inspiring as much as I do.
