Randy knew that he had pancreatic cancer. On August 15th, 2007, he was told, “you have 3-6 months of ‘good health’ left.” His doctor’s estimated prognosis of death was January 15th, 2008. Randy died July 25, 2008, 3 weeks shy of living 12 months with the one of the deadliest of cancers. During this time he completed his “Bucket List,” the things to do before “I die.” What’s on your bucket list? How far have you gotten down the list? What do you need to prepare to make the really special item happen?
Time Management by Randy Pausch
This lecture, given on February 15, 2008 – 6 months after his death sentence – moves me: Randy honors his commitment to deliver a lecture to the University of Virginia, knowing he’ll be dying soon. The poignant video above has gone around the world numerous times. The “Time Management” Video is growing, more because of its usefulness than its tear-jerking ability. He says, “Time is the only commodity that matters.” He goes on to tell us that Americans are really great at using and managing money as a commodity…but not so much with time.
Here’s a few more important points I took away from one (but DON’T skip watching! It’s really worth it – I promise)
He has some really awesome tips on making phone calls! (Mine are moving right along now.)
His message on Goals, priorities and planning – and a system for prioritizing is easy to understand and brings focus where it is needed.
He talks about the danger that many people encounter by focusing on doing things right. Instead, Do the right things. This is something I’ve put into practice, and let me tell you: it is NOT as easy as it sounds. But 15 years of vegetarianism later, I can definitely say that I am doing something right.
If you feel that you don’t have time to watch these videos, do yourself a favor and watch them.
You have more to gain than just time. And more at stake than your job. Watch it.
August 29, 2009 This was an incredible food feast. I love the “living salad” my friend Susan purchased. Very cool! Check it out tomorrow. Oakland “Eat Real” festival Sunday – All food sourced locally. Farmer’s market and music too. Thanks Susan!

4 computers at once! Fun relieving of tech stress!
Great event for a Great cause, teaching kids around the world to Learn/Read. Did you know there are 100,000,000 illiterate kids today?

How ’bout we tax all Fast Food restaurants – Tax would fund Health Care!
Let’s boycott Whole Foods, b/c CEO says were overweight, not exercising and self-inflicting our own medical problems. Duh? Wake up America!
Wow. You think are taxes and/or health premiums are a lot now. Just wait until health care reform is passes. We’ll either pay a lot more taxes (and hopefully no health insurance) or if no changes take place, which I doubt, the Health Care industry will raise premiums to recoup the $140,000,000/day they’re spending of OUR MONEY (those of us insured) to stop pending legislation.
Did you know we have the highest infant mortality rate in all developed countries? Just one of a lot of stats th
at say we pay more, per person, for health care and have some of the most unhealthy people in the world who are scared to change jobs because health care might be affected!
At Luxury Marketing Council meeting, San Francisco, ‘Discount or Die.’ Really making me think!

Marianne Williamson takes the stage at ebcrs.org East Bay Church of Religious Science.
Off to a glorious day of church, our most notable speaker since I’ve been there, Marianne Williamson, and then BBQ & Movie party with some friends. Great Sunday!
August 22, 2009 Great quote from Dinosaurs TV Show, “Your the one who decided to have a family, have a wife, kids and NOT eat them.” Hard to believe this show was only on from 1991-1994! It is so fun! Anyone else get into this show? So funny the way
Don’t know how I stumbled upon this link. This guy should be immediately fired and an unemployed police officer (or kid off the street) who knows how to say, “What’s the emergency?,” no matter what attitude they’re given should take his place. He could have killed this woman’s father.
Believe it or not – just saw for the first time!! Dick Tracy. Love all the fun colors and seeing Al Pacino at his God Fatheresque best. Madonna as Breathless was quite fun. Dustin Hoffman – wasted role! Amazing “kid” is now a lawyer! How’d you like movie?
It’s cool – people keep going to www.ITMonFacebook.com – to get ALL they’re questions for technology, social media, digital cameras, selecting a new netbook and notebook – for FREE – just by being a fan! Doesn’t get any easier than that! Don’t forge to check our reviews on Yelp, as well, www.ITMonYelp.com
another reason for GPS – late night freeway closures!
August 21, 2009 In the East Bay for some Thai food and Comedy. Ahhhhh….no work….all play!!!
Hey all! Have you been to Dale Carnegie before? It’s a super cool class. Great time to sharpen your skills in the slower than normal times. I’ll be a Graduate Assistant at this class. Come on to this orientation – it’s free and you’ll learn a lot at this intro. It’s fun, inspiring and you’ll be able to network there.
August 18, 2009 New Facebook for iPhone – when will it be approved? Looks extremely cool! If only they could add a REAL keyboard ;-)! August 17, 2009 Just finished learning the HULA with @YvonneUrness and SoMe Bootcamp. What next?
OMG, @secretsushi‘s formula is out of the bag! Yikes! Adam is very up-to-date with stats – appreciate that! @schwerdtfeger what a great sense of humor. Good work making a dry topic somewhat funny!
Janet Fouts is filling our heads with tons of great tools. Had no idea there were so many ways to “listen” to the web. Thanks, Janet
Patrick Schwerdtfeger preaches Increasing Website Traffic.
Got great tools from Janet Fouts at Social Media Boot Camp. Thanks Janet!
To know me is to know about my passion for food–particularly vegan food. Food is everything to any culture. It is imperative that we take a close examination of our lifestyles as humans in the plugged-in 21st century. Thirty percent of American meals are eaten in the car. In the car. This information is not any easier to digest than the hormone-injected all-beef patty on a sesame seed bun. This ritual that is performed daily or with family that is so vital to our health and existence deserves more sacredness. Having delighted in my soap box, I go on to say this: The Eat Real Fest was so much fun.
Real Food is grown, agricultured. Not driven-thru. Last weekend, the Eat Real Festival was held in Oakland California. The Eat Real Movement is indicative of the Slow Food Movement, was successfully designed for “putting the FOOD back in ‘Fast Food’.” So, if we can’t all change our lifestyles in a snap, we will still need some form of instant-grat food. But if instant-grat food is a corporate chain, our communities suffer one small dollar menu item at a time. Enter the “street vendors.” All the local street vendors agreed to use local farms for all the ingredients for dishes served at the festival for $6 or less a pop. The result? A flurry of happy community involvement!
I spoke with a volunteer at the beer shack. He told me about a study done in a community of Oakland: Five years ago, it was easier to find drugs downtown than a salad! He went on to say, that he’d grown up there, and now, something is happening. The happening is an energy that could be felt from every person there. Then he told me that all the proceeds from beer sales were distributed to three charities that work towards injecting real food (less processed, more connected food) into lower-income communities. I bought the $25 beer-tasting. Then I met the farmers in the indoor Farmers Market.
Another favorite of mine with the TCHO Chocolate. It’s locally manufactured chocolate – in San Francisco – and the name stands for “T”echnology CHOcolate. I love the way the owner is designer virtual tour so he can monitor the chocolate as it’s being manufactured. They have a cool flavor wheel which helps you pick out thhe perfect chocolate.
The promotion of food from local counties in Northern California to locals and foodies was entertaining and fun. This is going to be an annual event, with more artists, more “street food” and more exposure for the great cause. Get there! Where else are you gonna find a living salad bowl?
