The greatest barrier in our quest for continuous improvement i think is always the tendency to fall into a rut & to take things for granted. and as you get older, it gets easier. sliding into a certain comfort zone becomes almost second nature, you've reached a certain level and just dont feel the need to push yourself anymore. therein lies the problem, routine slowly kills all vestiges of passion and without passion its hard to feel 'alive'.
The recurring events of 2008 & 2010 have indeed turned my world upside down but the 'cold water' effect couldnt be more timely.. i needed to be waken from my deep slumber. if jannah is my goal, as i suppose it is with everyone of faith, then i certainly must reconsider the direction i am heading. with the clock ticking away, i might not be able to catch up... theres so much that needs improvement.
Lets get on with it.
