In The Last Lecture, a video of Professor Randy Pauch’s last lecture before he died from terminal cancer, Randy Pauch talks about a lot of different life lessons. He explains how to achieve your childhood dreams and how to over come difficulties that might stand in you way, Randy called these difficulties “Brick Walls”
Brick walls are the obstacles that we encounter in everyday life. Randy Pauch was referring mostly to the big brick walls that stand in the way for achieving your dreams and ambitions but I believe that we do encounter brick walls everyday. In The Last Lecture Professor Pauch states that “Brick walls are there for a reason, they let us know how much we want something” I completely agree with this statement. Brick walls are meant to be there. Without them we would never truly realize how much we really wanted something or maybe even how little we actually want what we are after.
