Randolph Frederick Pausch , conhecido como Randy Pausch, foi um professor de ciência da computação, interação homem-computador e design na Carnegie Mellon University em Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Estados Unidos e autor de um best-seller, ganhando fama com o multiaclamado The Last Lecture, livro baseado em uma palestra dada em 18 de setembro de 2007 na Carnegie Mellon University.Pausch nasceu em Baltimore, Maryland, e cresceu em Columbia.Em agosto de 2006 Pausch teve um câncer pancreático diagnosticado. Ele começou então um tratamento pesado, que incluía em sua maioria técnicas experimentais de quimioterapia. Porém, em agosto de 2007, ele mesmo disse que sofreu uma metástase para outros órgãos, significando que havia se tornado terminal. Ele começou então um novo tratamento em quimioterapia, com outro objetivo: estender sua vida ao máximo. Com isso, os médicos deram-lhe mais 3 a 6 meses.

Em 2 de maio de 2008, um exame PET mostrou que seu câncer se espalhou ainda mais, para alguns órgãos vitais, principalmente no peritônio e no retroperitônio, evidenciando sua piora no estado de saúde.

Em 25 de julho de 2008, Diane Sawyer anunciou no Good Morning America que Pausch havia morrido naquela manhã.Pausch morreu em sua casa, em Chesapeake, no sul da Virgínia, ao lado de sua mulher, Jai Pausch, e seus filhos: Dylan, 6 anos, Logan, 4, e Chloe, 2 .

Citações Randy Pausch

„Eu não falarei sobre espiritualidade ou religião. Nem mesmo direi que experimentei uma conversão ao leito de morte. Eu apenas comprei um Macintosh.“

—  Randy Pausch, livro The Last Lecture

We're not going to talk about spirituality and religion. Although I will tell you that I have experienced a deathbed conversion. I just bought a Macintosh.

A Lição Final

„Nós não podemos mudar as cartas que nos foram dadas, mas apenas o modo como iremos jogá-las. Se eu não estou tão deprimido ou triste como deveria estar, desculpe desapontá-los.“

—  Randy Pausch, livro The Last Lecture

We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand. If I don't seem as depressed or morose as I should be, I'm sorry to disappoint you.

A Lição Final

„And as you get older you may find that enabling-the-dreams-of-others thing is even more fun.“

—  Randy Pausch, livro The Last Lecture

The Last Lecture (2007)
Contexto: So what is today's talk about then? It's about my childhood dreams and how I've achieved them — I've been very fortunate that way; how I believe I've been able to enable the dreams of others, and to some degree, lessons learned: I'm a professor — there should be some lessons learned — and how you can use the stuff you hear today to enable your dreams or enable the dreams of others. And as you get older you may find that enabling-the-dreams-of-others thing is even more fun.

„Never break a promise, but re-negotiate them if need be. If you haven’t got time to do it right, you don’t have time to do it wrong. Recognize that most things are pass/fail.“

—  Randy Pausch

Time Management (2007)
Contexto: General Advice: Never break a promise, but re-negotiate them if need be. If you haven’t got time to do it right, you don’t have time to do it wrong. Recognize that most things are pass/fail. Feedback loops: ask in confidence.

„You will need find your passion.“

—  Randy Pausch

Many of you have already done it, many of you will later, many of you may take to your thirties or forties, but don't give up on finding it. Right, then all you are doing is waiting for the reaper. Find your passion and follow it. And if there is anything that I have learned in life, you will not find that passion in things. And you will not find that passion in money. Because the more things and the more money you have, the more you will just look around and use that as the metric — and there will always be someone with more. Your passion must come from the things that fuel you from the inside. And honors and awards are nice things, but only to the extent that they regard real respect from your peers. And to be thought of well by people you think of more highly up is a tremendous honor I've been granted. Find your passion, and in my experience, no matter what you do at work or what you do in in official settings, that passion will be grounded in people. It will be grounded in the relationships you have with people and what they think of you when your time comes.

„The best way to teach somebody something is to have them think they're learning something else.“

—  Randy Pausch, livro The Last Lecture

The Last Lecture (2007)
Contexto: The best way to teach somebody something is to have them think they're learning something else. I’ve done it my whole career. And the head fake here is that they’re learning to program but they just think they’re making movies and video games.

„So what is today's talk about then? It's about my childhood dreams and how I've achieved them“

—  Randy Pausch, livro The Last Lecture

I've been very fortunate that way; how I believe I've been able to enable the dreams of others, and to some degree, lessons learned: I'm a professor — there should be some lessons learned — and how you can use the stuff you hear today to enable your dreams or enable the dreams of others. And as you get older you may find that enabling-the-dreams-of-others thing is even more fun.

„And these are the kind of things that I think everybody ought to be doing. Helping others.“

—  Randy Pausch, livro The Last Lecture

The Last Lecture (2007)
Contexto: My dad was so full of life, anything with him was an adventure. [Shows picture of his Dad holding a brown paper bag] I don’t know what’s in that bag, but I know it’s cool. My dad dressed up as Santa Claus, but he also did very, very significant things to help lots of people. This is a dormitory in Thailand that my mom and dad underwrote. And every year about 30 students get to go to school who wouldn’t have otherwise. This is something my wife and I have also been involved in heavily. And these are the kind of things that I think everybody ought to be doing. Helping others.

„Failing to plan is planning to fail.“

—  Randy Pausch

Time Management (2007)
Contexto: Failing to plan is planning to fail. Plan Each Day, Each Week, Each Semester. You can always change your plan, but only once you have one!

„I think he's absolutely right on that one.“

—  Randy Pausch, livro The Last Lecture

When Pausch spoke of "when you’re screwing up and nobody’s saying anything to you anymore, that means they gaveup." he was quoting Jon Snoddy http://www.snoddy.net/
The Last Lecture (2007)
Contexto: Wait long enough and people will surprise and impress you. He said, when you are pissed off at somebody, and you're angry at them, you just haven't given them enough time. Just give them a little more time — and they'll almost always impress you. And that really stuck with me. I think he's absolutely right on that one.

„It is not the things we do in life that we regret on our death bed. It is the things we do not.“

—  Randy Pausch

CMU Graduation speech (2008)
Contexto: It is not the things we do in life that we regret on our death bed. It is the things we do not. I assure you I've done a lot of really stupid things, and none of them bother me. All the mistakes, and all the dopey things, and all the times I was embarrassed — they don't matter. What matters is that I can kind of look back and say: Pretty much any time I got chance to do something cool I tried to grab for it — and that's where my solace comes from.

„We don't beat the reaper by living longer, but by living well, and living fully — for the reaper will come for all of us. The question is: what do we do between the time we're born and the time he shows up.“

—  Randy Pausch

CMU Graduation speech (2008)
Contexto: We don't beat the reaper by living longer, but by living well, and living fully — for the reaper will come for all of us. The question is: what do we do between the time we're born and the time he shows up. Because when he shows up, it’s too late to do all the things that you’re always gonna, kinda get around to.

„You get people to help you by telling the truth; by being earnest. I'll take an earnest person over a hip person every day, because hip is short-term, earnest is long term.“

—  Randy Pausch, livro The Last Lecture

The Last Lecture (2007)
Contexto: How do you get people to help you? You can’t get there alone. People have to help you and I do believe in karma. I believe in paybacks. You get people to help you by telling the truth; by being earnest. I'll take an earnest person over a hip person every day, because hip is short-term, earnest is long term.
