What a good Friday because I have NO CLASS today! I spent my whole morning finishing "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch ;) This book has taught me a lot. It shared with the reader many practical life tips. Here are some of the most important tips from this book.
1. Remain Optimistic
The author reminds us optimism is a very important trait for people to have. He tells the reader optimism will enable them to endure more. He also says optimism is a better mindset to get you through the day.
2. Enable the Dreams of Others
The author reminds us it is very important to enable the dreams of others. The author was always trying to enable the dreams of others and was very successful in it. I think I should really encourage my friends and my boy not to give up. Practicing Buddhism or other religions is the way to obtain absolute happiness ;) Remember to always help people in need!
3. Dream Big
The book teaches us that we should give ourselves permission to dream and to fuel those dreams. That's what I have been always doing! Hahaha! I have always been dreaming of Party in the USA!
4. Don’t be Afraid to Ask
The book teaches us to always ask for something. It reminds us that asking for something can never hurt. It explains that in most situations people will get a “yes.” Never too late to learn something new. Be humble ;)
5. Remember there is “More Than One Way to Measure Profits and Losses”
When the author was younger, he took a family trip to Disney World. He and his sister bought a Disney salt and pepper shaker. When they left the store, the salt and pepper shakers were dropped and broke. They took the shakers back to the store and the Disney employees replaced them a new one. The employees took total blame for not packaging the salt and pepper shakers well enough. The author’s family appreciated this so much they went back regularly and estimate that they spent around $100,000 at Disney.
6. Romancing the Brick Walls
The author reminds us “The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it bad enough. They are there to stop the other people.” This is what exactly I have learned from Daisaku Ikeda from Soka Gakkai International, he said life is a constant battle against deadlock. As long as we are alive, as long as we continue challenging ourselves, we are bound to come up against difficult obstacles that need to be overcome. If life were all smooth sailing, if we never encountered setbacks, that in itself would be a sign of stagnation. I found this website is very inspiring! (Words of Wisdom)
7. Not All Fairy Tales End Smoothly
The author reminds us things will not always go perfectly. Remember even fairytale moments have risks. They need to take these risks but also be prepared for them to not end in the way they initially expected. Back-up plans are important in the event a situation goes wrong. Life is about how you handle Plan B! I felt so thankful in my exam this semester, but I did not fulfill my Plan A. I admit that Result is important, but it is not everything. Thus, I have decided to take very challenging subjects-Human Rights, Intellectual Property and Ethics this semester! I want to challenge myself, I want to share with my friends! Good luck to me okok! I felt gratitude to have my lovely family who never give me any pressure, they just constantly give me support and encouragement to achieve my dreams! I love you!

8. Make a Decision: Tigger vs. Eeyore
Everyone need to decide if they are going to be a fun-loving Tigger or a sack-Eeyore. People love being around a fun-loving Tigger not a sad-sack Eeyore. We need to pack as much fun into our lives while we can.
9. Don’t Complain Just Work Harder
I think this one is most important point after reading the whole book. Too many people keep complaining including myself. I used to complain the class sucks instead of thinking what I was wrong. Complaining does not accomplish anything but working harder will accomplish everything. I will work harder to achieve my Plan A okok! At the same time, don't be a nerd, remember to enjoy your life to the max! Be happy with what you are doing! The purpose of life is to become happy! The purpose of life is to challenge and triumph over the darkness of misery.
