No Excuses: Put an end to Procrastination Today!

Put an end to Procrastination TodayIt happens all the time. You think about doing something but you just never get started. You tell yourself this time you are going to get it done. This time you will succeed. But before you get started you come up with all kinds of reasons and excuses to put things off. You accept the excuses you come up with. Excuses like: I will start tomorrow. I need to wait for everything to be perfect and etc.

They are all excuses that you have accepted. And you have planted these excuses on your subconscious mind. So you keep putting things off. Eventually you convince yourself that you can't start now. That you need to wait and that you have to put things off. You tell yourself you are not ready. You will start tomorrow. But tomorrow never comes. You don't get started. Another year goes by and you keep putting things off.

No matter what you do, No matter what you want to do, you keep procrastinating. You keep putting things off. It happens all the time, over and over again. That is because you have programmed your subconscious mind to keep putting things off. You have planted a habit of procrastination on your subconscious mind. And now your subconscious keeps following that habit. So you keep putting things off.

But you can change that. Now you can put an end to procrastination. Now you can get things done. Now you can get more done in less time. Just feed your subconscious new thoughts and new beliefs which lead to more success, so that you can get things done quickly and easily and so that you can put an end to procrastination once and for all.

Procrastination destroys your life. It prevents you from achieving what you want. It stops you from having more. It blocks you from reaching your full potential. The more you procrastinate the worse your life gets. When you keep putting things off you never succeed.

Example, each January millions of Americans embark on a journey to get fit, be active and lose weight. For the first two or three weeks of the New Year people who are not accustomed to getting up early will roll out of bed with a new found sense of urgency and hopefully a little more preparation in their step to get them out of the door. You will be lucky if you can find an available treadmill or stationary bike at any fitness facility. The sad part of this is the fact that their numbers will start to dwindle as they lose the motivation to keep the routine going.

How do you keep that motivation? You start by setting priorities and working hard to make your desires become reality.

Kabir Das in one of his Hindi Doha says,

Kaal Kare So Aaj Kar, Aaj Kare So Ab
Pal Mein Pralaya Hoyegi, Bahuri Karoge Kab?


Tomorrow's work do today, today's work now
If the moment is lost, how the work be done?

In this Doha, Kabir Das has clearly tried to explain the human tendency of laziness and procrastination. It is a known fact that we all tend to postpone matters, we are indecisive and given a choice we would like others to do our work and we simply enjoying a cool time. When it comes to us, we try to get away by giving an excuse, "very busy, no time."

This lethargy is what Kabir Das is condemning. Besides, his emphasis is on now, the present, the moment as it is. Now, that is Life, the moment. It is in the now that one gets energized to do, to achieve and to realize the dream. As they say, it is now or never.

This Kabir Das couplet clearly teaches us to shed all procrastination and lethargy. It motivates us to do whatever we have to do, and do it now. If we will keep postponing it, then the work will never be done.

So put an end to procrastination today. Give your subconscious new instructions so that you get things done today. There's no homework. No exercises. Just ponder upon the verses of Noble Qur'an whenever Shaytan whispers, and stops you from taking the step towards action.

Allah (SWT), the Almighty Wise says: "And that man can have nothing but what he strives for; and that (the fruit of) his striving will soon come in sight". (An-Najm 53:39-40)

"Therefore, when you are free (from your immediate task), still labor hard (and start another task), and towards your Lord move forward". (Inshirah 94:7-8)

Wishing you great success in your future endeavors.

Henny Penny: Making excuses lets you avoid responsibility

Making excuses lets you avoid responsibilityMaking excuses doesn't help anyone but ends up hurting you at the end, as in the case of Henny Penny who was always looking for some lame excuse to talk to King. So, one day Henny Penny was scratching in the farmyard looking for something good to eat when, suddenly, something hit her on the head. "My goodness me!" she said. "The sky must be falling down. I must go and tell the king."

She had not gone far when she met her friend Cocky Locky. "Where are you going in such a hurry?" he called out. "I am going to tell the king that the sky is falling down," said Henny Penny. "I will come with you," said Cocky Locky. So Henny Penny and Cocky Locky hurried along together towards the king's palace.

On the way they saw Ducky Lucky swimming on the pond. "Where are you going?" he called out. "We are going to tell the king the sky is falling down," replied Henny Penny. "We must go quickly, as there is no time to lose." "I will come with you," said Ducky Lucky, shaking the water off his feathers. So Henny Penny, Cocky Locky and Ducky Lucky hurried on together towards the king's palace.

On the way they met Goosey Loosey, who called out, "Where are you all going in such a hurry?" "We are on our way to tell the king the sky is falling down," said Henny Penny. "I will come with you," said Goosey Loosey. So Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky and Goosey Loosey hurried on together towards the king's palace.

Round the next corner they met Turkey Lurkey. "Where are you all going on this fine day?" she called out to them. "It won't be a fine day for long," replied Henny Penny. "The sky is falling down, and we are hurrying to tell the king." "I will come with you," said Turkey Lurkey. So Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky, Goosey Loosey and Turkey Lurkey all went on towards the king's palace.

Now on their way they met Foxy Loxy who asked, "Where are you going in such a hurry?" "We are going to the king's palace to tell him the sky is falling down," replied Henny Penny. "That is a very important message," said Foxy Loxy. "I will come with you. In fact if you follow me I can show you a short cut to the king's palace, so you will get there sooner."

So Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky, Goosey Loosey and Turkey Lurkey all followed Foxy Loxy. He led them to the wood and up to a dark hole, which was the door to his home. Inside his wife and five hungry children were waiting for him to bring home some dinner.

That, I am sorry to say, was the end of Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky, Goosey Loosey and Turkey Lurkey, for one by one they all followed Foxy Loxy into his home, and they were all eaten up by the hungry fox family.

Henny Penny was the last to enter the Fox's hole and she heard Cocky Locky crowing in alarm in front of her. Squawking with fright and scattering feathers, she turned and ran as fast as she could for the safety of her own farmyard. There she stayed and she never did tell the king that the sky was falling down.

There are thousands of excuses for every failure, but never a good reason. - Mark Twain
