  1. first.
    cut scene * cut scene * cutscene

    Alhamdulillah good video, i like the idea of accepting the fact you can get into unproductive ruts but to work towards killing the habbit.

    I hear this idea a lot… what do you think of it. “take 1 day off a week, 1 week off a month, etc.” basically scheduling time off. However consider i have those unproductive days do you have any ideas on how to cope with “scheduling” relaxing time while accouting for generally unproductive days?

    JazkAllahu Khairun

  2. Assalamu alaykum. I like the comment about even if you don’t hit your deadline — finish it. I find that I make my deadlines, but then no matter how much I plan unforseen responsibilities come along. They can put my deadlines back a little more. But as long as I keep at it and reach the goal, that’s okay.

  3. @Machher Al-Kabeer haha, that’s how I roll…or it displays the many mistakes I have to “fix”

    Time Off – of course it’s needed, and it’s gotta be done right.

    When it’s “time off” you’re fully disengaged from “work” and don’t feel the need to do something productive.

    Timing – for myself, I take the “time off” depending on NEED instead of scheduling it. Like, when I feel that tiredness or slump approaching I decide to take that day off, or half a day off. Just chill…

    Ex. Thursday was one of those days, one of the things I did was watch Home Alone (I) 😛

  4. @Umm Amin wa alaikum assalaam

    yes yes.

    y’know, a lot of times the more important thing is developing one’s habit and attitude towards their work than the task itself.

    Things happen everyday, our personal growth from each day varies.

  5. great advice. I definitely agree about still finishing even though you’ve missed deadlines. I don’t know if I’ve told anyone (online) this yet, but I started a new time/task management system. (I probably should’ve wrote about this on my blog, just been lazy with the blog lately).

    It’s based off a system used by http://ScottHYoung.com (Scott H. Young)
    Basically, it’s a to-do list system where I make my goals for the week (in order to beat procrastination, I write all the tasks I have to do), and then each night, I make a to-do list for the next day. And I check it off as I do it. (And I DO NOT add more to unless it’s necessary).

    Seems simple but it’s really effective. The greatest thing about just writing with pen and paper (as the same guy wrote about in an article) is that it’s not like 99% of other productivity software and gadgets. It doesn’t have features that you don’t need. If you think you need to add in a certain timeslot for a task, guess what: just write it in. Don’t need it anymore? Erase it. It’s that simple. Once you can create a system with pencil and paper that works for you, THEN find software and tools that fit those needs. Too many people jump in to things like Getting-Things-Done and other system and expect them to be systems that work for everyone.
    You have to first know who you are, and how you work, and adapt your systems to fit YOU.
    Because changing yourself to fit systems just gives you more stress, which is contradictory to the purpose of time management. Now, to end this long comment with a period, now.

  6. @Jawaad Ahmad Khan Ya write it up on your blog, the changes/improvements from this system.

    Jazakallahukhair for the link, I checked out the site and looks real good. I’ma read his articles when I get the chance inshaAllah.

    Well put.
