Today I will give the dialogue of the movie. There is an English word in South India – Rowdy. This is almost unheard of in England and America. This word means – rowdy, hooligan, etc.
Dialogue from that movie, translated into English, reads like this:
To live a hundred years, it will not take a hundred years. Do something in one day, so that people remember you for a hundred years.
Yes, this is the best way to use time. Do something that people remember. Just one job, to be done so well, that people remember it for hundreds of years.
Let’s see how long it takes to do a job well.
- Steve Jobs, the founder of the Apple company, and creator of the iPhone lived to be only 56 years old.
- The most famous modern star, Michael Jackson lived only 53 years.
- Bruce Lee’s name comes to mind when talking about kung fu karate, etc. He died of illness at the age of 32.
History has seen such famous people. Now look at the living people
- Google founder Larry is 49 years old.
- Facebook founder Mark is 37 years old
- QUORA founder Adam is 37 years old
It turns out, the way to make the most of time is to do something, and do it so well, that people will remember you for ages.
Now let’s find out easy ways to find more time in a day!
Most of us struggle to find an extra minute or two in our day for anything. With today’s fast-paced lifestyles, things like spending time with family and resting can often fall by the wayside. But even with a mountain of responsibilities, sneaky time-saving tricks still exist that help you create more time for the things that really matter.
Here are a few simple time-saving tips that you can start practicing today, and thank us for later.
Make some schedules.
Just because you can technically fit it into your schedule doesn’t mean you always should. How many chores your kids are allowed to do after school, how many evenings a week you want to go out, how many committees you’re comfortable joining right now – set a limit before all the initiations and requests flood in.
In a busy life, if things aren’t scheduled, they often don’t happen. So schedule doing nothing as a time to rest and relax. Treat that time like any other planned activity you commit to and stick to it. While kids want to do many after-school activities and it can be challenging to say no, spending quality time with family and keeping calm, healthy parents is just as important as developing athletic and creative skills and hobbies.
Have a plan, and stick to it.
Keep a weekly list of common tasks. Whether it’s admin, cleaning, or chores, (or all three!) having regular weekly allocations for specific tasks will help get them done as well as ensure things never get too busy. For example, mark Monday as banking and laundry day, and Tuesday as filing and grocery shopping day.
Identify your personal “productivity prime time”.
We all have a certain time of our day when we are most efficient. (For most people, that’s between 8 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., but that’s not necessarily the case for you.) Use these hours for the most challenging tasks you have to do that day. If you’re a stay-at-home mom, it could be your child’s nap time or TV time.
Get ready as soon as you wake up.
Make your “to-do” list the night before so that when you wake up the next day, you can get cracking right away. This will encourage productivity and a sense of accomplishment early in the day – which will help keep you motivated.
Reduce Travel Time.
One of the top five common traits shared by the world’s happiest people is that they live close to work As a result, they have more free time to spend on the things that matter to them rather than spending an extra two hours a day sitting in traffic. Whether it’s for school or work or dropping the kids off at their daily activities, take a look at what your daily routine is and see where you can spend less time spent traveling.
While two hours a day, or even 1 hour, may not seem like much, it’s a daily occurrence, and it adds up fast. A two-hour commute a day adds up to ten hours a week and about 43 hours a month. That’s about two full days a month spent commuting—the equivalent of an extra weekend. How happy would you be if you enjoyed one extra weekend every month?
Learn to love the word “No”:
As clichéd as it is, it’s equally true – especially for full-time mothers. Just because people ask you to run errands for them, watch their kids, volunteer, host events, and/or anything and everything else, doesn’t mean you have to say yes! This brings us directly to the tip; “Schedule something”. When your “do nothing” time and your planned activities have maxed out all the space on your calendar, you have no time left to agree to anything else.
That’s not to say it’s never going to be an option, but you should wait until there’s time in your schedule for it. This will help you manage any potential feelings of guilt, while again avoiding falling into the “over-committed” trap.
As I write on Islamic subjects, I have little acquaintance with some. They will be a bit disappointed. Because, in this article, only media-related people are mentioned. For those readers……
Bukhari Hadith Collection Complete Book, Write All Volumes. How to write? Write down each line carefully. See how long it takes. It will take a few years.
Now imagine, there is no such thing as a Bukhari hadith collection. You will write such a hadith collection yourself. How to write? Collect hadiths from different people. If so, how many years will it take to collect and write so many hadiths? It may take 70-80 years.
Now imagine, the internet, mobile, etc. were not invented. How many years will it take to collect and write so many hadiths? If there are no cars, planes, etc., how many years will it take to order from different places?
Muhammad Bukhari, the author of the Bukhari Hadith Collection, was born in 810. There was nothing at that time. Such an extensive collection, collected and written in that era, should take 700-800 years to complete. Muhammad Bukhari lived for 60 years.
Muhammad Bukhari’s words have to be explained. However, nothing should be implied about the prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) because you all know. What Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) did in just 23 years, people like us will not be able to do in a thousand years.
All this is possible – because of Allah’s blessings and mercy. The media persons I mentioned, though non-Muslims have been blessed by Allah. That’s why they can do it. You also pray. Repeatedly pray to Allah for blessings and mercy. By God’s grace, you too can do such a wonderful thing.
