Life is too short! Live it like this!

Randy Pausch died today from pancreatic cancer at the age of 47.  This was his “last lecture.” I highly recommend it and guarantee you’ll learn something valuable.

Monday Morning Motivator: Tom Peters – Gain Respect By Giving It

Way back around the time I was launching my business career, two McKinsey & Company management consultants, Tom Peters and Robert H. Waterman Jr., wrote In Search of Excellence, a book that would turn out to be a modern classic and launch a new genre of business literature.

Today Tom Peters runs his own management consulting firm industry. His books are perennial bestsellers and his website/blog is chockful of interesting and useful information. He is an energetic, engaging and insightful public speaker as this short clip about “respect” will attest.

If you enjoyed that and have a little more time (20 mins), watch this episode from The Charlie Rose Show. While its more than 10 years old, much of what they discuss in the interview is still relevant today.
