We are naturally social creatures, we are hooked to seeking each other out and profoundly shaping our bonds and relationships. Our ability to empathize and relate to one another’s stories by communicating our thoughts and ideas is what sets us apart and makes us exceptionally human.

When we share our deepest emotions with people we care about, with our fellows and friends, certainly, we tend to create beautiful bonds that can be cherished for the rest of our lives. The last session at Amal fellowship “taking flight” made me realize that how important it is to share our struggle stories, setbacks, sleepless nights, and words that tore us into pieces.

I’m looking forward to keeping in touch with all of my Amal friends through social media and time-to-time meetups even after the fellowship ends.

Don’t worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.— Sherman Finesilver

People who wear glasses, without them, always look unfocused, vulnerable. Out in the open. A layer removed. Sometimes all you need is a new perspective. To see things differently. Amal worked like those…

Practice garnering positive thoughts through reflection

We don’t learn from experiences we learn from reflecting on the experience.

I’ll second John Dewey’s quote about reflection. Today I’ll share my experience of positive reflection on my journey as an Amal fellow.

I sat down and started reflecting on it and I…

Feel for those who can’t afford what we have.

We are a group of 7 members who started this project as our mega project in our fellowship from Amal Academy to assist the organizations that are doing work for society's betterment. …

Well, it’s always a pleasure to help others and this time we did this for the world’s largest volunteer ambulance network Edhi Foundation.

Abdul Sattar Edhi was the founder of this foundation and he set an example for others by serving humanity.

We try to play our part in this…

Use Pomofocus to cope with Procrastination

What is Pomodoro?

The Pomodoro Technique is created by Francesco Cirillo for a more productive way to work and study. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. …

Problem Statement

Nowadays, everyone is busy in their life and want everything at home in a quick time, in addition, COVID19 plays a vital role in this scenario. There is a prominent gap in different sections but I want to cover Fruit and Vegetable’s sector.

I talked to some men and women about this issue and unfortunately, I was unable to take photos, they were quite concerned about this they said it’ll be feasible for them if they get fresh fruits and vegetables at their doorstep and definitely we’ll charge for our services.

Furthermore, we can expand our circle to hotels, marriage halls, and restaurants. Diet plans are also on the cards alongside fruit baskets for different events.

I’m quite positive about this and looking forward to work on it.

Amal suggest the five totkay (methods) for mindset growth and those are following
1- Self-Talk
2- Get out of your comfort zone
3- Create Habits
5- Fake it till you make it

These five tips are quite helpful in mindset growth I’m also trying to adopt these methods. For me get out of your comfort zone is the most important as majorly I have to work on this.

You should start implementing these totkay from now and start from self-talk then after making the decision go for 2nd one after that create habits those were relevant to your decision and then adopt the remaining two methods respectively. I think this is the best strategy for mindset growth.

“How to sell on Etsy” This is the project I choose for myself in #juststartyourgoals assigned by Amal. This goal is connected with my main goal of becoming a businessman as I’ll learn how to do business on Etsy. Since now I thought it’s quite difficult to do business on Etsy from Pakistan.

Etsy Learning

I completed the introduction of Etsy this week and the experience is quite good that I learned new things about Etsy and in the coming weeks, I’ll learn about account creation and Etsy shop manager. I bit slow in learning Etsy as I have other commitments too.

I was sitting in my living room taking my online course assigned by Amal Academy and then there was I project of fixing stuff around yourself in which you have to look around yourself and observe which thing needs a change as an act of leadership.
