1. Throw out your T.V
How much time do you spend watching T.V? I haven’t watched television for a very long time. It frees up amazing amounts of time. If you watch 2 hours a day, that’s 730 hours per year, or 4.34 weeks per year. It’s time to kill your T.V.
2. Don’t multitask
I’m a huge multi-tasker and addicted to it. I don’t really want to change that habit right now, but I have noticed that whenever I focus on one thing, magic happens more often than not.
3. Enjoy listening to Quran recitation
I tend to only listen to Qur’an while I do other things like driving, cooking. One day I put on Qur’an recitation and sat with my eyes closed. It was as if another world had opened up. Everything seemed different.
4. Turn off your phone
I’ve had my phone turned off a lot. I’ve even stopped answering the phone when it rings. I guess that’s one of the reasons why people don’t call me anymore. But on a more serious note, it’s relaxing.
5. Turn off your Facebook chat
Did you think I was going to let you have your FB chating on? Shut it down! You will notice how much time you’ll save. Try it.
6. Learn your values
What are your true values in life? Do you value integrity? Honesty? What about love? How about money? Which one is #1?
People say they don’t have time, when in reality they’re saying they lack priorities. If you don’t have time to follow your passion, you don’t really care about feeling fulfilled and awesome. Learn how to eliminate and discriminate.
8. Keep it simple
Keep things as simple as necessary, but no simpler.
Remind yourself that you are going to die. This will melt away any obstacles that are preventing you from living your life in the obedience to Allah SWT.
Last, but not least, remember to enjoy your life. Remember to be grateful for the little things. Remember to be kind to the people around you and remember to follow your heart. And of course, remember to read inspiring quotes on a daily basis on my Facebook page!
Wishing you the very best.
