To start a unit on time management with my Leadership class this week, I showed them Randy Pausch’s lecture on the subject. First, I had to show them his Wikipedia page to explain why he was famous, then I told them about The Last Lecture, and then I showed them a clip of his cameo in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek. I pointed out to them that most lectures on time management don’t get 1.3 million hits on YouTube–this guy was someone special.
I know it’s over an hour long, but it’s worth your time. It’s a “greatest hits” condensation of every useful strategy you’ve ever heard, and it’s delivered with more wit and grace than it’s fair for any one man to have.
