It's Time To Stop

For as long as I can remember I've had this problem with savouring an opportunity, an experience and a moment. The problem is before that process begins. I call it perfecting procrastination.

It works like this. I have a written rule about zero days. Zero days are days where that I don't progress, develop, learn or better myself in one way another. Even if it's just a mere 10 press ups. Slow progress is still progress. I'm not allowed a zero day, despite the circumstances. My perspective and the way I look at the world changes as my understanding progresses.

My problem is that I will stop an area of development based on "Why benefit now when you can benefit more in the future".

More is the reason of unhappiness.
More is why I cannot reach new heights.
More is why I procrastinate.
More is the killer.

It's hindering me and I realise it's a problem. It's problem because I have a constant need for perfecting myself. The very idea in itself is paradoxical.

I have more books than I can accommodate. There's one particular book I've procrastinated for 13 years years since I was 12. I've wanted my mind to be at a particular stage of development before I started this journey. I stand here and I say no more.

It's Saturday and I'm starting with the sealed nectar, the biography of Muhammed (saw). After this I have 58 books to work through. You can follow my progress over at:

I also have a box of vintage and rare chocolate from Hotel Chocolat to work through. I kid you not. This stuff is the crack of Chocolates. 

Procrastination. No more. I'm taking control.

Snowstorm Across the Middle East

I couldn't help but be in awe when I saw this, more here. Subhaan'Allah. 

Snow is beautiful. It's fun when you layer up, go for a walk, throw a snowball or two.

I then came to the realisation that snow is only beautiful when we're in our warm homes. Something many of our brothers and sisters won't have this year. Allah (swt) protect all whom are without warmth, shelter and food this year. 

Allah has blessed us with endless bounties. Please make a contribution: 

I spent a night homeless in Venice not too long ago. Being in the cold unprepared is brutal.
