A Quote

Credits to Randy Pausch, Professor, Carnegie-Mellon; and to Jeffrey Zaslow.

Chapter 32
Don't Complain, Just Work Harder

Too many people go through life complaining about their problems. I've always believed that if you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you'd be surprised by how well things can work out.

...
The message in their stories is this: Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won't make us happier.
An excerpt from his book, The Last Lecture.

Randy died of pancreatic cancer on 25th July 2008. (I got the book just three days earlier.)
