  1. Jeffrey,
    I believe your writing is improving! Also, you did a good job giving your description of the video. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! They lead to a few of my own. I disagree that "if you lead your life the right way the dream will come to you." While leading your life the right way is important, it does not insure the fulfillment of your dreams. Bad things happen to good people. I believe that Pausch was successful in this because he did not wait for his dreams to come to him, he made them happen. He seems to stand for the idea that if you make the right choices, learn lessons from failure, choose the dreams you are most able to carry out, and work hard, then they may be fulfilled.
    Keep up the good work in your writing!
