  • Procrastination - why do we feel stuck and what can we do to stop it

    :salams

    Great TED video about procrastination that I quite enjoyed and agreed with.




    In school, I always did things last minute and got rewarded for it, so it made me continue doing what i was doing. But without deadlines, it's harder to do things that you want to do.

    So here's a question for everyone who is a procrastinator, what can you do to commit to a goal when you don't have someone giving you a deadline to do things?

    This is to go for life stuff and Islam stuff. Obviously Allah gave us a deadline, our death, but that doesn't help a procrastinator unless a doctor tells them that they only have five months to live or something.

    So, what do you suggest to someone (or yourself) who wants to do something but can't help but stray off and watch weird videos on youtube?
    وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ
    "And when My servants ask you (O Muhammad concerning Me, then answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright."
    Surah al-Baqarah ayah 186
    [2:186]

            Very important video. On my hit list
            Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.
