He was a good singer and humanly committed.
His values are very important to me because it's about respecting a community who's persecuted.
He moved mountains for them.
I think that all the love he gave to them is an example of what a human can do the best for the others.
RIP Adam Yauch.
I might be returning to normal tomorrow...whew! Papers are done. Finals in 4 days. I might be volunteering to teach English as a second language this summer : )
Happy ...what day is it? Tuesday : )
Here is...Today's Setting Goals challenge:
Describe your success role model by writing down 5 qualities you admire about this person.
How to do it
Write down the name of one person - you don't even have to know him or her personally - whose level of success you admire. Jot down at least five qualities that make this person successful. Is he known for getting to work early? Does she practice certain habits, such as meditation or exercise, daily? Did he take big risks when starting out in his career?
Why it matters
Figuring out how your success role model achieved his or her goals gets you thinking about your own success habits. Research also shows that when we see someone else achieving what we want for ourselves, we're more likely to believe we can do it, too. Listing the skills and habits that make your role model a success shows you that you don't have to be a superhero to get where you want to be.

My role model is Marsha M. Linehan, Ph.D.
I'm looking for someone who is free and would be interested in doing a 5-day pact with me.

I picked a successful author -- well successful in a monetary sense, if not literary. She did change the culture. Her qualities --- 1) She followed her dream. 2) She ignored critics. 3) She did the necessary research. 4) She stuck to her goals over a period of years, she never gave up. 5) She never lost sight of what was really important in her life (kids, grandkids).
This was not as easy as I thought, more because of the many attributes rather than only a few. Here' my take on my role model's top qualities, alphabetically, but really in no particular order:
and underlying all that, a sene of humor.
Yes, technically that's six, but I don't care.
Also: I was reading posts from yesterday. What an impressive collection of 'mission statements' and how powerfully expressed. Truly inspirational. You guys are really something special. Thanks.
Hoping for a bit of rain soon. The pine pollen is everywhere. This moring my car was covered (again) with a coat of fine, chartruese dust, almost 'nano-fine". Only about two more weeks of that and outside will be liveable once more. Never dull in the Pines.
Good day, all.
Interigty, compassionate, loyal, happy, and creative.
Okay Cyn, we are on day 3. Half way through it and it looked like you complete your challenge before me. Good for you. I was having a slow morning. I didn't want to get up, but I did, let the dog out, and went for my run. Then I did my dishes and put out a new dish cloth and two new towels. Off to work I went.
Yesterday, I was very bad, I only worked on my homework and not on my house. Today is PLTI so I won't be able to get to it until Wednesday. I need to get flowers planted and that living room done. I am shooting for the end of this week to get it completed. It's really not that much, just looks like it. I think I know where I am going to hang my pictures, so I should be able to start on my Family room by Monday.
Have a great Tuesday.

I picked a friend who does the same job as I do, parent. The aspects of her that I feel make her a great parent are her: Passion, Creativity, Heart, Intelligence, Thirst for Learning. Those are all aspects of her that I admire & am constantly trying to emulate.
