Fresh Air’s …… Terry Gross. I have been listening to her show for over 7 years now.  I really enjoying hearing about people and their flashy, colorful, ecclectic, lives.   From one guy to the next lady, each of us carry out our days so differently!!  wow!  I think Terry does an awesome job of bringing this to our attention and allowing us (the curious listener) to be in the interviewees life for an hour.  As someone who is interested in how people tick…….and how I myself tick…… Terry Gross seems to open up a secret portal into a deeper arena where people feel safe enough to genuinely share themselves.  I really admire her ability to listen deeply and her gently probing questions.  She’s genuinely curious and open minded and intellectually/musically adventurous………and very empathetic.  My hero!  Delving into her world makes me want to be an interviewer…..and actually, i have wanted this my whole life!  It’s funny how I’ve been looking (am looking) for a job I will love……and deep down, I know that I want to be an interviewer!  But how that will manifest………could be so many different ways!

Commitment

December 15th, 2015 · La Vida

Commitment

True commitment is serious and it is powerful.

Commitment is not just saying you’ll do it. Commitment is doing it. True commitment is not conditional, for to be committed means to be absolutely committed.

Commitment is more than doing just what is convenient or comfortable. Commitment is doing what is necessary. Commitment is making the sacrifices and tradeoffs that are required to uphold it. Commitment is more than just wishing for the right conditions. Commitment is working with what you have.

Commitment is not easy. Commitment does not back down or run away at the first sign of trouble. Commitment perseveres until the goal is reached. Commitment does not waste time and effort whining or complaining or seeking to find blame. Commitment adjusts to reality and moves forward.

Too many people have been deceived for too long, and have come to expect that they can know fulfillment without the gritty effort of commitment. They are sadly mistaken. Real, solid commitment is real work. And well worth it. The evidence is overwhelming — it gets results like nothing else can.
