Review On ” The Last Lecture “

I read ” The Last Lecture” book few times in 4 years. I brought this book by reading summary of this book on google in 2016. “The Last Lecture” book written by “Randy Pausch” . The author describe his journey of life from childhood as well as bottle up his life and advice for his children.

Whenever i read ” The last Lecture” , I feeling connected with the author’s view. Don’t know why i feel connected to author’s view on life ; I think it because I am Computer Science Student and the author is Computer science Professor.

Happy Reading…..!

Dress Right , It always pays

Look important -it helps you think important.

Rule : Remember your appearance “talks” . Be sure it says positive things about you. Never leaves home without feeling certain you look like the kind of person you want to be.

Most honest advertisement appearing in print — ” Dress Right , You can’t Afford Not To. “

One advertisement primarily for child but it can be applied to adults as well. “Look at yourself through your superior’s eyes , your associate’s eyes “

It costs so little to be neat . Take the slogan literally. Interpret it to say ” Dress Right , it always pays.”

People do evaluate you on the basis of your appearance. Your appearance is the first basis of your evaluation other people have. The point is : the better you are packaged , the more public acceptance you will receive.

Appearance is important but how do you expect me to afford the kind of clothing which really makes me feel right and which causes other to look up to me?

Answers is : ” Pay twice as much and buy half as many.”

In sofar as appearance is concerned , quality is for more important than quantity. Remember : Your appearance talks to you and it talks to others. Make certain it says , “Here is a person who has self-respect. He’s important . Treat him that way.”

You own it to others – but , more important , you own it to yourself – to look your best.

You are what you think you are . If your appearance makes you think you’re inferior , you are inferior . If it makes you think small , you are small.

Look your best and you will think and act your best.

Keep Others In Suspended Terror , Cultivate An Air Of Unpredictability

Humans are creatures of habit with an insatiable need to see familiarity in other people’s actions. Your predictability gives them a sense of control.

Turn the tables. Be deliberately unpredictable.

Behavior that seems to have no consistency on purpose will keep them off balance, and they will wear themselves out trying to explain your moves.

Taken to an extreme , this strategy can intimidate and terrorize.
