Randy Paush

Randy Pausch was an american professor of computer science, human-computer interaction, and design at carnegie mellon in pittsburgh. he was known for his "Last Lecture" , titled "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams". He then, co-authored a book called The Last Lecture on the same theme., which became New York Times best-seller. Since i watched Randy's Lecture about Time Management here are some points that really caught my attention and I think I'll use later in my life. Basically, the talk he gave was about Managing your time in different ways. The first interesting point he pointed out was "Managing your time makes you succesful." and not the way around. Secondly, i was suprised to know you can waste two hours per day when you have a messy desk. Thirdly, failing to plan is planning to fail. Also, there was a technique he suggested in the lecture that I can use later on, which is the covey's four-quadrant TODO. Lastly, he gave great tips on how to get things by by e-mail done faster. For example, it's okay to nag people after not replying for more than 48-hours. And much more ..
