I'm going to smile like...

Love this quote from JustWannaSayIt
" I'm going to smile like nothing's wrong, talk like everything's perfect, act like it's all a dream, and pretend it's not hurting me."

since the internet connection is very bad here.. there's no eyecandy for this entry. Oooo I really missed faster internet connection.

oh boy! today is definitely not my day

* woke up early to catch my flight
* I lost yesterday data! My compact flash card can't be read
* I got stalked again!
* feeling a little bit anxious
* slow internet connection really drives me crazy!

day 322:P365~~ gratitude for Microsoft Windows Live Writer

Windows Live Writer really changes the way I blog. Everything is so easy and simple when you use this tool. A lot of flexibility when you wanted to blog with photos or videos. I wish they made the mobile version for Android. I know they probably will have the mobile version for the latest Windows Mobile.

food for thoughts on procrastination, the zen habits way…

Why We Procrastinate? Click here if you want to know why…
To combat that here are a few suggestions from Zen Habits
1. Stop and think. When we allow the above thoughts to go on without really being conscious of them, we procrastinate. When we actually pause and think about those thoughts, we can rationally see that they’re wrong. Instant gratification in the form of goofing off or eating junk food can lead to problems later. Fears are overblown and shouldn’t stand in our way. Not having negative consequences now doesn’t mean there won’t be consequences later. Our future self isn’t as bad-ass as we like to think. So think about what you’re doing, and start to do the more rational thing. Use the strategies below as well, but thinking is the start.
2. Enjoy the process. When we dread something, we put it off — but instead, if we can learn to enjoy it, it won’t be as hard or dreadful. Put yourself in the moment, and enjoy every action. For example, if you want to go out to run, don’t think about the hard run ahead, but about putting on your shoes — enjoy the simplicity of that action. Then focus on getting out the door — that’s not hard. Then focus on warming up with a fast walk or light jog — that can be nice and enjoyable. Then feel your legs warm up as you start running a little faster, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. This process can be done with anything, from washing dishes to reading to writing. Enjoy yourself in the moment, without thinking of future things you dread, and the activity can be very pleasant and even fun. And if it is, you won’t put it off.

3. Set up accountability. If no one is looking over our shoulder, we tend to let ourselves slack off. So set up a procrastination-proof environment — find people to hold you accountable. I joined an online fitness challenge this month, for example, so that I’d report my workouts to the forum. I’ve done the same thing for running, quitting smoking, writing a novel. You can even just use your friends and family on Facebook or email.
4. Block your future self. Your future self is just as likely to put things off. So block that sucker. Use a program like Freedom to block your Internet access for a predetermined amount of time, so your future self has to actually focus instead of reading blogs. Turn off your cable TV, get rid of the junk food in your house, cut up your credit cards … do whatever it takes to make it really hard for your future self to procrastinate or give in to temptation, or at least force your future self to pause and think before he does anything dumb.
~~ sources from Zen Habits

Does these makes sense? I would like to add a few things to the list… when it comes to things that is important and “wajib” it’s so easy for me to procrastinate. These tips  really help to be less procrastinator:
* eliminate distraction
* set a schedule to do them and just do it!

* remind yourself of the benefit you get by doing it

What is your tips to combat procrastination you would like to share?

something that captured my eyes and I think deserved some attention!

source from Nasreen Syah notes

1. Ada antara kita datang ke pejabat hanya memenuhi tanggungjawab 'DATANG BEKERJA' tapi hampa, hasilnya macam kita ' TAK DATANG' kerja

* it’s important that when we come to work, we are there physically, emotionally and spiritually

2. Ada kala kita rasa kita BUSY giler, rupanya kita hanya 'KELAM KABUT' .

* planning your day and prioritize things can really help to get things done without overwhelm with the busy syndrome

3. Adakala kita rasa kita PERIHATIN , tapi rupanya kita BUSY BODY.
* so so true!
my obsession
4. Adakala kita rasa kita OPENMINDED and OUTSPOKEN tapi rupanya kita KURANG PENGAJAR'AN.

* the people skill is really important in a work place. I think we need to have a lot of outreach programs and training to inject good manners in today generation

5. Adakala kita rasa kita berpemikiran KRITIS , rupanya kita hanya lebih kepada KRITIK yang mencipta KRISIS .

** something to think about

6. Adakala kita rasa kita ingin menjadi LEBIH MESRA tapi rupanya kita di lihat lebih MENGADA-NGADA .

* hemm this is more on how people see you. That is why presentation is everything..
me at the office
7. Adakala kita suka bertanya 'KENAPA DIA NI MCM TAKDE KEJE', adalah lebih baik kita tanya 'APA LAGI KEJE YANG AKU BOLEH BUAT ?'

* change of paradigm is a must in a work place. the world is changing and I think it’s about time we “esp the govt” change too..  Govt 2.0 everyone!

8. Adakala kita rasa kita ni pekerja yang SEMPURNA,BAIK DAN BERDEDIKASI tapi cuba tengok dalam-dalam, selagi hati kita berdengki, jatuhkan reputasi sesama rakan sekerja (report kat bos kawan kita tak bagus dari kita) dan tak amanah (mencuri dan tak siapkan kerja),kita sebenarnya patut terima hakikat betapa kita lebih teruk dari dari anggapan kita itu sendiri.

* the glass is half full or the glass is half empty? which one we want to be?

So what do you all think?

day 321:P365~~~ gratitude for Aidil Adha

Today, Muslim all over the world celebrate Eid Adha, the celebration of sacrifice and devotion towards Allah. So today I would like to be thankful to all the people who made sacrifice to make this world a better place.

Day 21: Thankul for Eid Adha

321of365 "Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى‎ ‘Īdu l-’Aḍḥā) or "Festival of Sacrifice" or "Greater Eid" is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son Ishmael (Isma'il) as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a ram to sacrifice instead.[1] The meat is divided into three parts to be distributed to others. The family retains one third of the share, another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors, and the other third is given to the poor & needy. Eid al-Adha is celebrated annually on the 10th day of the 12th and the last Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah (ذو الحجة) of the lunar Islamic calendar.[4] Eid al-Adha celebrations start after the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide, descend from Mount Arafat. The date is approximately 70 days (2 Months & 10 days) after the end of the month of Ramadan, i.e. Eid-ul-Fitr. Ritual observance of the holiday lasts until sunset of the 13th day of Dhu al-Hijjah.[5]" source wikipedia
