 Guide to a Better Life

Before Randy Pausch died of pancreatic cancer in 2008 he wrote the best seller book, The Last Lecture. In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan, and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "Guide to a Better Life" for his wife and children.

  • Call your family often.
  • Each day give something good to others.
  • Forgive everyone for everything.
  • Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of six.
  • Try to make at least three people smile each day.
  • What other people think of you is none of your business.
  • Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

  • Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.
  • GOD heals everything.
  • Do the right things.
  • However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
  • No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
  • The best is yet to come.
  • Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
  • When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.
  • If you know GOD, you will always be happy. So, be happy.
