The last lecture

One of the positive psychology interventions on our road to leading a fulfilled and happy life is to write our own legacy. This exercise is absolutely theoretical, we typically write it being in good health. The purpose is to allow us to envision how we would like the rest of our life to unfold, and to determine if we are well on our road to what we are writing down.

Professor Randy Pausch, author of the book “The Last Lecture” is not as fortunate in that his last lecture, his legacy, is written by the time he is aware of having terminal cancer. However, he is fortunate as he can look back on a life well lived. Randy Pausch shares with his readers his very personal life lessons and his humor and wit make this an absolute must read if you are interested to learn more about how to live a good life, north of neutral.
