You only get what you work for

I was listening to quick morning talk by a prominent Scholar (Shaikh Yawar Baig, Site) and he started it with this verse from the Holy Quran:

Surah_Najm

It charged my exhausted and drained batteries to the full 🙂

Talent Vs Skill

I wanted to spend some time on the social web before I sleep and was particularly looking forward to some inspirational video shares on FB, G+ and Twitter.

And yeah, the first post was an awesome video share by Yawar Baig titled: Talent Vs Skill.

Watch it below:

“You gotta believe in yourself!”

“Just because you failed doesn’t make you a failure”

“It’s your dream, if you want it to happen, get your butt up and make it happen!”

Achieving your Childhood Dreams

I woke up this morning, and after the routine stuff, logged onto social media (for trends, updates et.al :P) before I start working. It always helps to do something relaxing before a tough job. I have this tough prototype project that I’m failing at for over a month now and I’m close to backing out (but I won’t In Sha Allah). So, opened up Twitter, G+ (not FB, it sucks in the morning). A chance tweet by @myawarbaig got me hooked up for the next 75 minutes.

 

I thought it’d be another of the regular lectures, but this turned out to be way more powerful than what it looked on the face of it. I thought I’d multi-task, but given the great points Randy was sharing, I just couldn’t do anything else but give my full attention to this video.

My fav takeway:

The Brick walls are there for a reason!

Enjoy the embedded video above in the embedded tweet embedded in this post (Inception anyone?).

And yes, I still didn’t get that project done, but it was awesome to get distracted! 🙂

Think Different

If you’ve read my earlier posts, I mentioned about Steve Job’s bio book which I’d want to start with.

It’s been few chapters into it and I’m mesmerized. I came across the ‘Think Different’ campaign design process and more amazing things…

And when I checked into Twitter, someone shared a link to a youtube video of Steve brainstorming with his small team of his next Startup, Next.

Video after Video and here I came across the ‘Think Different’ campaign.

…are the ones who do!”
