Dr. Maultsby wrote a book I’d wished I had around for my children. And then he passed away a few days after I had found out about it and bought it on Amazon.
I posted that I had the book and was planning to use it with high school students I work with for my job. His daughter Evelyn Maultsby Bynum replied “Lol! I think I have that book engrained in my brain as he made me read it over and over again when I was in middle school. Lol! I have multiple copies at home ready and waiting for when my kids are in need of its brilliant instruction & material. 😄”
Wisdom is simple, listening to it is complex, applying it is life altering.
Feeling Good – by David D. Burns is number 1 on this list. Never heard of it until recently. And with the subject of advice to modify moods to a more positive outlook on life in mind, I put in an order to purchase a paperback copy.
“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.” Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture. You can find more quotes here.
I also ordered the fourth book on the list and am excited to read it even though it was created under a sad premise – The last Lecture by Randy Pausch.
Randy Pausch rode around his neighborhood on a bicycle talking to a friend on a cell-phone headset. This was done 53 times and became the source for the book.
The real Last Lecture is on Youtube. It is something to view as one waits for the book to arrive.
Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 – July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving presentation, “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.
