Khudi & Self Learning
Edhi sb’s Reading:
Edhi sb’s biography is an inspiration for all. He used principles of progress to get to achieve his aims. I would like to share one of those principles that i liked the most. In the start when he aimed about helping the needy persons his friends started calling him “Sheikh Chili”, a person having big dreams but have nothing to do. But he was never disappointed and he keep on working on his vision and at last got his vision. I like this example very much because it experienced such a principle in my story that i followed. After my college life, i was interested in doing mechanical engineering from a renowned university. I applied for different universities. I didn’t get call from one university not from another. But i didn’t stopped and kept working till i at last got call from UET Lahore. So, what i learned from my experience that never stopped working. “Work, work & work till you succeed”. So my experience let me know about this principle.
One of the principles of progress is “Amal”. Amal means taking small actions to make something big. So, i was assigned this project in which i worked on this principle. My project was to do the something that i am afraid to do or anything i wanted to do but couldn’t do in the past. I was trying to learn “Microsoft Excel” but wasn’t able to learn it from a long time.
I wanted to learn it because it was used in my course work many times but i didn’t know how to use it.
The difficulty that i faced in the past was that i was lazy and didn’t get time to learn it. But then i thought that at least i should just start.
So, to complete the project, the first three steps that i followed were:
I. To learn by yourself by understanding the nomenclature and display
II. To get some tutorials from internet and an expert
III. To practice the basics
After this experience, now i at least know the basics of this software and now i can learn it further when i will keep on using it. During this project, the difficulty i faced was to lessen my relaxation times. Moreover, in the start i has to give more time because it was difficult for me to work on it because i had no practice.
From this experience, i learned a thing that to do something, we have to take a step and should start at least. In start, we face difficulty but with time we started achieving our aims and it motivates us from inside.
