Weekly reviews…

What is your personal Key Performance Index (KPI)?

I was updating my work project progress and looking into the checklist to make sure that I don’t missed out on my deliverable time (thank goodness for trello.com) ¬†when I realized that I did not set a personal KPI for my task at home.

Its no wonder I get stressed out sometimes when I see a pile of laundry or the trash has not been put up. OR that I have overspent my shopping money 3 weeks before the next payday! I put a side money for shopping, utilities, investments/savings and normal expenditure every month, but since I don’t track my activities closely, sometimes I might get overboard when it comes to shopping ūüė• –

The worst part I would only realize this when it comes to the end of the month review, baru lah nak puasa & makan nasi bungkus huhuhu…

Planning to set up a GEMBA board to track my monthly activities especially on finance so that I can reach my goal of relieving myself from DEBT by 2017! I’m half way through but as I was reminded by my Ustazah today, the biggest challenge that Allah set upon us is not really poverty, but wealth. We tend to forget Allah and our goals when we have extra money huhuhu….

Currently I put my record in this planner given by Pusat Zakat Pulau Pinang which helps a bit. The only minus point is that I sometimes forget to open the book and record my expenditure in it at night. I seriously need a cure for laziness ūüė¶

And instead of monthly reviews, I’ve put on a reminder and set my mind to conduct at least on weekly basis if not daily. Monthly reviews are only for big items.

May Allah grant me ease and strength!





“I have so many things to do!”

I rant to darling hubby almost every time I get back home and yet, everytime we reached home, all I want to do is just sit down and do nothing!

I totally salute the super working mom who managed to get up early to prepare for the day, perform at work and come back and prepare a proper meal for their family. So much energy and selflessness…makes me feel so envious!

Sometimes, I do get reminded of the reality of “if I do nothing, I will get nothing!” And this usually gets me pumped up again and miraculosly¬†I managed to accomplish some of the task that I have put off for the whole week (or month – I’m such a procrastinator)

But the enlightment will usually dampened with tiredness!

I get so tired having to spend almost 3hours on the road to work every day (1 and 1/2 hours for each trip). I also get tired going through tones of data and taxing task at work.

That’s why I put off blogging for some time.

Looking forward, since we are blessed with so many long weekends ahead, lets take some time to rejuvenate both body and soul, and at the same time listing the task pending and setting a goal to accomplish 60% of it before mid February comes. Don’t be to hard on myself and let go of things that did not happen.

Energetic is what I hope to accomplish this year. To accomplish this, I’ve scheduled myself to join the Aquarobic class every Saturday, and hitting the gym on Wednesdays. I do hope this will serve as a self reminder not to use tiredness as an excuse to not being able to do the things that I need/want to do. It is so last year, I need to move forward!

May Allah grant me ease and strength!


Planning to write everyday onwards…

I wonder if this resolution can be achieve, but honestly it has been awhile since I last write my thoughts and record the happenings in life and this has made me feel like I did not achieve much in life lately.

When I received this article in my email today, I take it as a sign to start writing again. You go girl!
