In the name of Allah, most gracious and most merciful,
1. A keytakeaway
Today I want to stress the idea of adding value. When you add value to others, and you see the impact of your work on them, you feel more satisfied and you even strive for adding more value.
Don’t focus on your ego and don’t focus on just finishing your working hours. Try to think critically and add value to whatever you are doing. At the end of the day, it is your time, you could just use it as a vessel that you want to fill with your work or you could see it as a domain for you to understand yourself, and to add value to others. And why understand yourself, and add value to others? That depends on your why of living, and you can find more information about what I mean here in this post.
2. Some useful pieces of advice
Most of these pieces of information are taken from Unscripted Book.
- In life we usually live with the script given to us by our family, society, media, and community. ––Some of the principles in this script maybe currently wrong. They may have been right in our parents’ times but they are not necessarily right nowadays. They are the principles behind how life works. Like what is true education, and how the market works.
- The media usually concentrates on making us consumers. A lot of people love to consume more than they produce. Your income maybe looked at as your value in the market. When you produce more than consume, you may have a surplus in your income.
- If you want to live a different life that is unscripted you have to change some of your principles to unlearn the wrong facts propagated my media about what is life, and what is your responsivities in it. Try to think more in terms of a producer rather than a consumer. Look at products as a producer. What caused you to buy this product or service? Did you pay attention to the producer’s education or his graders? Did you pay attention to his passion or whether he loved what he did or not? What is the thing that prompted you to make the buying decision? Was it a free trial so that you could see the value and test it before buying, or maybe because you have a certain need? What if the marketing of the product made something you don’t need look as if it an indispensable thing for you?
Allah bless our master Muhammad and his family
