Procrastination~

 Salam,
 Well, ever heard of this term? Obviously,we have not just hear about it but had experience it too right? Especially,as students..I am also included ok. Hmm..what is procrastination? Why do we procrastinate? How to overcome this major problem in our daily life maybe?
Procrastination is the act of putting off or delaying an action to a later time. The way we define things will determine the way we interact with it. For example, if we define procrastination as our bad habit,maybe it will get control of us most of the time..while if we define it as a negative tendency to put aside,then maybe we could get over it. Time is priceless you know so by procrastinating we are not appreciating every second of our life...even it is already stated in the Quran in Surah al-'Asr which means that :
103:1 = By (the token of) Time (through the ages)
103:2 = Verily Man is in loss
103:3 = Except such as have faith, and do righteous deeds and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.
So, basically learning to value our time is a powerful strategy to overcome procrastination and getting the most out from our life. When we value something then we will eventually look after it and protect it..although it's the time that we are talking about now..
I believe that we had gone through the times where we did our last minute assignments, tutorials, projects and etc..and mmg sakitkn nk siapkn semua kerja last minit? I had suffered that once and I am trying my very best to not having the same experience again. All of us are not perfect and sometimes I know we cannot resist the temptation to procrastinate but there are ways to avoid it..
- anticipate future asgmts.
- don't put asgmts off till the last minute.
- do hard asgmts 1st.
- expect the unexpected..(if suddenly emergency cases appear)
- just get started.
- avoid distractions..and
- reward ourselves..haha
p/s : always remember our goals in life and ponder that one of the biggest obstacles in our path is procrastination-the failure to begin, to delay the start and ultimately leave our potentials wasted in the end..we don't want any of that to happen right? so,this is the time to increase our ability or improve our skills and to get to know ourselves better..all the best!

Beware of what you talk!

Salam,
So, how was your day throughout this Ramadhan? well, undoubtedly some will say ok and some will say that it's kind of tiring rite? hmm...I would say both..it's tiring but I'm enjoying it. May ALLAH always give us strength to go on with our life and face the challenges for our upcoming future..^_^
Actually today I want to share about my life..emm my hectic schedule of life as an engineering student.Basically,all of us will have two labs per week and my labs is on every monday and tuesday. Am I happy? Of course I am because I can rest for the rest of my week! but unfortunately, I found out that I struggled more for my labs every week. Wanna know why? Simple..we never learn about the topics YET in the lecture but still need to do our labs well. It's sounds crazy and tough! We will be the 1st group to do the experiments so, it will be easy for the others to ask how n etc. I am not selfish so I do help them...and for your kind information, all of my energy will be used maximumly for those mondays and tuesdays..so, I don't really have the strength to revise for my lecture the next day! Nescafe also won't effect me..trust me,,I will sleep earlier if I drink that.
You guys must be wondering what is the relation between my story and my topic rite? Be patient la..I'm just starting my story..hehe
Okay..analog~
it's one of the subject that I need to take for this year. I really like the class because of the lecturer..why?hoho..because she loves to call her student's name to ask questions..and I admire her for the way she teaches and make us all understand about the topic that she teach. I mention here again  ALL ok..not all lecturer can do that..the problem is my analog class is on tuesday and wednesday. Monday,got lab..by the time I reach my room I will be totally exhausted and sleep early..same goes for Tuesday..so,don't really get the chance to revise for analog. For all of this while I have been thinking that it's ok because she don't know my name but she knows my friend's name..aisyah..so,obviously la she gets prepared well for analog. Then,one day I told aisyah that I am in the safe zone since she don't know my name so, I won't be her 'victim'.....but what I thought was wrong! The day I told aisyah like that, my name was actually called by my lecturer! Terkejut tu tak payah cakap la sampai dia tanya formula depan mata pun tak dapat jawab..haha..*2 la Shahirah..padan muka,,lain kali cakap lagi..*(monolog sndr) 
hee..but come on look at the bright side..since now she knows me..obviously, I need to burn my midnight oil to study and get prepared well before my analog lecture and obviously I need to reduce the 'quality time' for myself...hmmph it's ok Shahirah! Strive for success! that's what you want right? So, go for it!! =)

last but not least,

Have some patience!

Salam..


Most of us always complain if we were given a test..telling that it's hard,tough n etc..
but try to look at the bright side because everything happens, happens for a reason right?
Even in Al-Quran it's already stated about lots of things..:


 "Allah tidak membebani seseorang itu melainkan sesuai dengan Kesanggupannya."          (Al-Baqarah : 286) 


"Boleh jadi kamu membenci sesuatu padahal ia amat baik bagimu, dan boleh jadi pula kamu menyukai sesuatu, padahal ia amat buruk bagimu, Allah mengetahui sedang kamu tidak mengetahui."                               (Surah Al-Baqarah : 216) 


"Janganlah kamu bersikap lemah, dan janganlah pula kamu bersedih hati, padahal kamulah orang-orang yang paling tinggi darjatnya, jika kamu orang-orang yang beriman."    (Ali Imraan : 139) 

"Sesungguhnya Allah telah membeli dari orang-orang mu'min, diri, harta mereka dengan memberikan syurga untuk mereka..(At-Taubah : 111) 

"Cukuplah ! Allah bagiku, tidak ada Tuhan selain dariNya. Hanya kepadaNya aku bertawakkal." (Surah At-Taubah : 129) 
and this is my fav..
"Apakah manusia itu mengira bahawa mereka dibiarkan saja mengatakan; "Kami telah beriman," sedangkan mereka tidak diuji? Dan sesungguhnya kami telah menguji orang-orang yang sebelum mereka, maka sesungguhnya Allah mengetahui orang-orang yang benar dan sesungguhnya Dia mengetahui orang-orang yang dusta? (Al-Ankabut : 2-3) 

A piece of hope(",)

Salam..it's been a long time since I am writing back in my blog. I haven't updated it for months! I think I should keep my blog up to date starting from now on...well,currently I had been busy with my 2nd year,1st semester in my university. My seniors told me that 2nd year will be like the toughest year for us because we will be busier with labs,tutors,assignments n etc..and unfortunately, I totally agree with them. Wanna know why? Because I do feel really damn exhausted for this starting weeks of my semester! Sounds harsh na? but I think I should bare with it because to gain something you will lose something right? and yes, I am gaining lots of things now and losing some of my things such as spending some time with my family? yeah..I think that's one of it.haha..
On top of that,I will not just talk about studies here ok..no way! what about this..hmm Ramadhan is coming! Alhamdulillah..I can't wait to lighten up my life again with this precious month..although it will be much more tiring but come on..it's just for one month!
Apart from that, I really hope that I can be a better person in my future..to be the best for myself..
----------------------HAVE A NICE JOURNEY OF LIFE--------------------
study 1st
then think about this...
