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:
It charged my exhausted and drained batteries to the full 🙂
You can listen to that podcast here: http://data.yawarbaig.org/FajrReminders/It-s_not_what_you_have_but_what_you_do.mp3
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!”
This is what I want to do, and enhance it with mini chirpy stuff!!!
This is what adds value to my life, by making a difference in the lifes of others.
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! 🙂
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.
“Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world….
…are the ones who do!”
