This is a link to a Muslim Life Hackers podcast about overcoming procrastination.
I was the guest on this episode, and we discussed many tips on overcoming procrastination, taken from my e-book Getting The Barakah.
“If you are afraid that it is going to take you 5 or 10 years to achieve a goal understand that those years are going to pass anyway and what will you show for it?” – Abu Muawiyah
- Why should our listeners care about time management and in turn being productive?
- Do you think that because time is not a tangible form of rizq we do not consider it as valuable?
- So for those of us who have also grown up in the 80s and 90s and have this notion of killing time, overhauling their habbits and starting to think long term sounds very intimidating. Where do we start with that process?
- How can someone tell if a decision is potentially harmful for them in the future or just an easy short cut? What is the difference?
- In your book you talk about how not all hours of the day have the same value. How can we use this to our advantage to get more done?
- The 7 day planner or the To-Do list? Can you explain these two systems and how they suit different lifestyles?
- What would you say to someone who says they are a procrastinator?
- Is having managed our time having a full calendar and always being busy? Where does relaxation and fun fit into the equation?
