The World Will Reminisce… Choose Passion

"My imagination was always pretty hard to contain, and halfway through high school, I felt this urge to splash some of the thoughts swirling in my head onto the walls of my childhood bedroom…

Jack and I painted a large silver elevator door.  To the left of the door we drew ‘Up’ and ‘Down’ buttons, and above the elevator we painted a panel with floor numbers one through six.  The number ‘three’ was illuminated.  We lived in a ranch house- it was just on level- so I was doing a bit of fantasizing to imagine six floors.  But looking back, why didn’t I paint eighty or ninety floors?  If I was such a big-shot dreamer, why did my elevator stop at three?  I don’t know.  Maybe it was a symbol of the balance in my life between aspiration and pragmatism.”

Randy’s dreams in The Last Lecture  raise the question, “why?” Why tone down dreams at all?  Is it because, “of the balance in my life between aspiration and pragmatism?”  Perhaps a better way to approach the most potentially engaging question of life has less to do with being realistic and more with the rapid sequence following preliminary dream cultivation.  Jack and Randy are cultivating Randy's dreams.
