00:00:00--> 00:00:11

salam ala Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Villanueva mousseline Mohammad Rasool Allah He is Allah Allah Allah He died early, he was able to send them to sleep and cathedral because it has

00:00:12--> 00:00:13

risen since this.

00:00:15--> 00:00:20

We talked about the timelog, we talked about effective time we talked about before all that we talked about like goal.

00:00:22--> 00:00:26

The final thing that I want to say to you is this,

00:00:27--> 00:00:31

that one very good reason to

00:00:37--> 00:00:50

today take charge of your life. And to structure it is because productivity is a factor of structure, not a factor of the number of hours.

00:00:51--> 00:00:54

Everybody in the world, as long as you are alive, as long as you

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

live on this planet called Earth,

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

everyone has the same number of hours.

00:01:02--> 00:01:18

Nobody has one hour more, nobody has one second, more or less. Everyone has the same number of hours. But not everyone uses them the same way. Not everyone achieves the same things, not everyone achieves equally.

00:01:19--> 00:01:24

And that is not a factor of the amount of time because that's the same, it's an effect of how you use the time.

00:01:25--> 00:01:29

How use the time depends on the way you structure the time.

00:01:32--> 00:01:41

Structure is an amazing tool, which is so easy, but which people don't use and

00:01:45--> 00:02:20

therefore, their time does not get spent effectively remind myself in you that time is a non renewable resource. You cannot buy it, you cannot borrow it. There's nothing we can do. The day you and I were born, we had the longest amount of time at our disposal. And after that, the time, the moment the minute we were born, our time clock called life started. And that works backwards. The time clock goes backwards.

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

Meaning it is

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

every second is one second list.

00:02:30--> 00:02:39

And just make life interesting. We don't know how long the whole time period is because we were born with a expiry date. But which we cannot see.

00:02:40--> 00:03:17

Like a package we had an expiry date, but we cannot see what the expiry date is. But it's there. So the sooner we realize that, the sooner we can take charge of our lives. So I don't know how much time I have left you don't know how much time you have left, what we do know is that at any stage in your life, you can decide to take charge of your life. Obviously, the sooner you start, the better off you are, inshallah you have more time available to you. But as I told you, since we don't know the exact amount of time, don't waste your time worrying about that. Just start from now

00:03:19--> 00:03:34

change your life from now and say that I am going to structure my life. Now what what's the meaning of structure, it means very simple thing, it just means that every single moment of your life, you know what you're doing, and you're doing it consciously, you take the Hadees

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

in nomina want to be near

00:03:38--> 00:03:45

that is one of the ways of understanding their hobbies, which is that am I utilizing my time consciously,

00:03:47--> 00:04:08

not unconsciously not in a fog, but consciously Am I utilizing my time consciously if I'm utilizing my time consciously Believe me, I am onto a good thing. And we can choose to utilize our time consciously at any point in our lives, there is no magic time or magic day or magic number for that and and

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

therefore start straightaway.

00:04:12--> 00:04:22

So start with the time you wake up I talked about effective time they may also talk about what I call maintenance time. Obviously the body needs

00:04:24--> 00:04:33

time to be maintained. So you need sleep time you need eating time you need time to have a bath and so on Now

00:04:35--> 00:04:53

bath and so forth is fine this we don't spend too much time in unless you're one of those who's you know stand under the shower for 45 minutes and then you are a threat in that case you are a threat to the world as well because you're wasting water like that, you know and be able to answer to Allah subhanaw taala for wasting water or wasting water resources. But other than that,

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

two places where we spend a lot of time one is eating

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

I eat once in 24 hours.

00:05:03--> 00:05:10

I think this is a brilliant thing that I've started doing. And it's been working, it's working wonders Alhamdulillah

00:05:11--> 00:05:15

do whatever suits you. I'm not asking you to do that, do what I'm doing.

00:05:16--> 00:05:21

Fasting Mondays and Thursdays, this is a tsunami. So you can do that as well.

00:05:23--> 00:06:04

Drink lots of water, but eat less. Every mealtime, if you think about it, we expend my guess is we spend anything between 45 minutes to an hour eating so that three hours a day. And if you reduce that to one meal, it's one hour a day. So straightaway, you cut out two thirds of that time. And that two thirds or two hours a day, which is 700 plus hours a year is available to you to do something more worthwhile, more worthwhile than putting stuff into your body. Most of the most of which, which you don't need. Second thing to do is

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

how much time we spent sleeping.

00:06:09--> 00:06:12

I know I'm not asleep with a specialist and so forth. But

00:06:14--> 00:06:27

I think from my experience in life, from what I've read about people, from what I've read in the Sierra versus Salem, from what I've read in this in the whatever I've read about all the different

00:06:29--> 00:06:30

the the, for example, say that I want to

00:06:33--> 00:06:37

take the great scholars, the classical scholars of Islam.

00:06:39--> 00:07:12

Anyone who achieved great things in life, you know, the great secret, they did that while they were awake. Nobody achieved anything in their sleep. So the longer you have you are awake, the more time you have to do something worthwhile. So seriously, ask yourself do you need the amount of sleep that you are doing people eat sleep eight hours and eight hours a day is 1/3 of your life. 24 hours, eight hours 1/3. So 33% of your life you kiss goodbye right away. If you sleep eight hours,

00:07:13--> 00:07:33

if you cut down, if you cut that down to four hours, you're still getting brilliant sleep. I have discovered that if I am doing physical exercise, I am walking now I walk about between five and six miles a day. If you walk, even if you walk have that you about three miles a day, which is very easy to do that 6000 steps

00:07:36--> 00:07:54

you will need less sleep, you will be more energized. If you walk 10,000 steps, which is five miles, it will completely change your life. Right? So please do that. Do it on a treadmill, do it on the street, do it wherever walking is the simplest thing to do.

00:07:55--> 00:08:11

People run and jog and so on those things are tough on the knees, especially later on in life, you will discover it. But walking, we were created to walk so there's no problem with walking. So walk and the more physical exercise you do,

00:08:12--> 00:08:19

it has two benefits. One is of course the benefit of the body straightaway. And secondly, it ensures that

00:08:20--> 00:08:23

you need less sleep you are more energized,

00:08:24--> 00:08:33

keeps your weight down burns calories has all all kinds of benefits. So reduce the amount of time you sleep you spend sleeping.

00:08:34--> 00:08:56

If you do that, again, as I said bring their time into your effective time. So two hours out of your meal times four hours out of your sleep times sleep time that is six hours a day. You have brought back into active circulation in achievement of your life goal. Imagine what kind of benefit that gives you

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

in terms of achieving your life.

00:09:00--> 00:09:05

So wake early, I mentioned as a schedule the other day

00:09:06--> 00:09:50

in structuring the day so I won't repeat that. You can go back and listen to that. Reminder on it. But structure your life make sure that you know what you are doing every single moment of the day. Even if you're wasting time you should know you're wasting time right sometimes I get stuck in some video or something with somebody send me and literally I can feel an alarm go off in my head saying this is a waste of time. This is a waste of time I stop it I shut it down. So very important for us to be very very clear about how we spend our time. I think I've spoken enough on this now is the time is to act and actually achieve something do something with our time. I wish you all the very

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

best mellows Rotella make it easy for you instruct your time for you and help you to achieve great things in life which also become a means of sadaqa jariya for you

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

All in which means it will become means of earning the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi member Africa
