One Trick That Will Help You Accomplish Your Goals

The New Year was just around the corner…. Umm… 3 whole months before!!!

Who doesn’t love fresh beginnings? Whether it’s a new day, a new session at school/ college/ university, a new designation, a new job, a new course or whatever… beginnings refreshes you (kind of). One feels more productive and enthusiastic at the beginning. Beginnings have the power of making it all look so nice and easy.

When you have to begin a day, you plan for it to make the most of it. An ideal day is the one where you get it all done and still have plenty of time for relaxing, recreational activities and just enjoying the life. But usually the day ends up as the one where a moment of silence is one where you just fall upon your bed at 2 am. Period.

Year In Review – 2016

Each year brings a fresh new slate for you to work on.

A book of 365 pages is given to you with fresh crisp pages, nothing written on it. You are now the owner of this diary. Each day is the new beginning. It provides you with multiple choices each day to work over. The power of choice and making your choices profitable for you is in your hands.

Yes! You can make a difference and that too not only in your life but also in the life of millions others. All this can happen once you have clarity and order in your life.

To have clarity and order in your life, you must grow with each passing day, each passing year. To track your progress, you must have goals that you have carefully planned to achievement. Planning and then taking practical steps to achievement.

Without practical steps and analysis of your progress you cannot grow. You will have no idea where you were standing, how much you have improved and how much more you have to work for in the particular area.

You will be clueless about the path you have taken. You won’t be able to know whether you are on the right track or need to change your ways. Continue reading “Year In Review – 2016”

Exam Preparation Made Easy

Exams are the bane of a student’s life. During exam season you find questioning the person who gave the concept in the first place. Students are full of innovative and creative ideas about examining an individual’s intellect without the exams. Just ask any student during his/ her exam period and you’ll be surprised!

Many researches that are not in favor of exams are remembered with facts and figures by students than the actual material they are required to remember for their exams!

Are exams really so bad? Should they be banned? What other measures shall be implemented? Let’s keep this discussion for a later time and focus on the ‘dreadful’ exams and how to combat them peacefully. (Yes, it’s possible)

Accept The Reality

Accept that no matter how much you hate exams (or that subject or the teacher) you have to appear for your exams and it’s the only way that you are credited for your intelligence (or lack of it). Prepare yourself for giving the exams and performing your best in them. Use positive self-talk. Be realistic and focus on your studies.

Set Up The ‘War’ Zone

Think of them as a war and be prepared to win over the enemy. Prepare a spot in your home, equip it with your study materials and necessary stationary that you will be needing during preparation and get ready to spent most f your day in the war zone. Keep your guides, notes, and other study material in an organized way in the place so you don’t have to waste time looking for a pen or some piece of paper during your devoted study time. Keep water within easy reach and sip on it from time to time to stay hydrated and active. You know we all get sleepy even at the sight of books! Keep snacks within your reach if you prefer munching while studying but don’t spent time munching rather than studying. And choose your snacks wisely.

Dedicate ‘Chunks’ Of Time For Studying

Allocate enough time in your schedule to cover up all the material. You may feel like ‘darya ko koozey me band karna‘ but you have to endure it. If you haven’t prepared the year round (or half-year for mid terms) you have to put in larger amounts of time into your studies to cover up everything. Stay focused and be fully concentrated towards learning and grasping the material instead of cursing and bad-mouthing teachers, books and exams.

Focus On The Hard Topics

Reverse plan and focus first on the difficult subjects so you can cover them with a much-needed relax state of mind. Go for understanding and learning, rather than rattay maring.

Practice Problems & Diagrams

No matter how highly you think of yourself, do practice formulas, problems, equations and diagrams. Sometimes a point gained here and there can be a lifesaver!

Don’t Prepare ‘Importants’ Only

No matter how lucrative it seems, don’t ever fall prey to preparing the ‘importants’ only and leaving the rest to fate. Remember “Allah helps those who help themselves”. So please give ample time to each section and prepare well.

Don’t Fall Victim to Over/ Under Allocation

Some students focus too much of their time and energy on one topic/subject/ area and then haphazardly prepare others. Don’t fall victim to over allocating or under allocating your time and energy. Plan carefully.

Social Media And Tech Will Still Be There

Rid yourself of distractions. Be smart and avoid your smart phone like plaque. Social media will still be there after your exams. Focus on studies rather than socializing, sharing and being tech-savvy.

Eat well & Sleep Well

Eat and sleep well to ensure proper health and active brain. Stay active. This will rid you of ‘boredom’ you fell during exam preparation. But don’t overdo on sleeping and eating. Remember time is precious and eating and sleeping well doesn’t require a lot of time.

Good luck for your exams!

The Imbalances Of Life

It seems that whenever life gets busy, we stop doing what we want to do for ourselves or the things that gives us pleasure.

imbalance in life

We think that this pattern will help us reduce busyness and we will have lesser things and a bit more time. In-fact, we achieve the opposite of this thought-pattern by neglecting ourselves and our passions.

The Bliss Of Being Alone

Loneliness is considered a taboo. A bad thing. It means that no one wants to be around you. Or you are not social? Or maybe you lack the etiquette for being with others? Or does it mean that you are so outdated and have nothing to talk about?

But it doesn’t have to be any of this if you are alone (Or you like to be alone). You are all right and perfect. I enjoy the time I can spend alone. The bliss of being alone, all by myself, is just plain exotic feeling that I long for at times.

Time with myself always refreshes me. It helps me to relax. To quieten the jumble of things that my mind is racing through. It helps me to focus and calm down.
