Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh and hi everyone.

Question :

Can a person master his PIES potential without mastering (and applying in life) the concept of Credit Hour Juice?

My take :

No, one can’t.

“Value five things before five other things:

  • Youth before old age;
  • health before sickness;
  • affluence before poverty;
  • leisure before becoming too busy;
  • and life before death.”

[Tirmidhi].

From the hadith, the Prophet emphasizes the importance to take benefit of the five nikmah (gift) given by Allah before come the other five. Although the statements look simple and easily written, those uttered words by The Prophet (Pbuh) are not just mere theories. They indeed require utmost commitments and perseverance to be able to grab those five before they are gone.

A quick recap;

Credit Hour Juice – a time management tools to squeeze (perform a task)  squeezingly.

MasterPIES – to know and master your Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Spiritual capacity and utilize them to achieve your goals.

[Week 3] The Art of Squeezing.

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh and hi everyone.

Have you ever wondered how some people manage to do a lot in a day though they are too, given only 24 hours as given to us by Allah?

Have you thought about wanting to do more in your 24 hours but failed each time in each attempt and finally give up trying?

Have you ever sit and wonder why those things you thought you are able to do and complete in less time often end up consuming more time that you have allocated and reserve for something else?

.

Yes, I have always wondered.

How do they do it? Why can’t I? Is it even possible to commit to a schedule?

Alhamdulillah, I have been given the chance by Allah to work closely to some great scholars here in the States and I have always wondered HOW DO THEY DO IT? They are always there in their offices doing work and researches. They never missed a single invitation to any intellectual event yet they also have time to spend inviting guests over to their house for dinner and whenever there are occasions happening in the institute, they’ll be the one serving the guests too, mashaAllah!

WOW.
