Really, it can get confusing. No need. Follow this simple table (we immodestly call it the “profit matrix”), and arrive at your line of business (or even the next product you should be creating).

Do you want some semblance of structure in your life?

Don’t you think that being creative and being organized is just not possible?

This guide was written to present the one thing that has helped me tremendously. By God’s Grace, the one method described in this guide helps me stay spontaneous and follow a system of constant improvement.

What’s In It

This small 22 page guide presents the best advice I’ve found on productivity and self improvement.

You don’t have to many things to do one thing right. Instead, I have tried to present just ONE thing that you need to do, and that one thing will help you do all those things that you want to do, God willing.

Enough talk, just download and go through it. And more importantly, take action. InshAllah, you can get to where you are trying to go.

Progress Reports

Now, these progress reports demand a bit of explanation:

I have struggled with focus in the past. I have also, by God’s Grace, been able to reach a few of my goals. A lot can be (and has been) said about setting goals and setting up rituals, but the reason I am sharing these reports is because of two things:

That’s a big reason for doing this. Putting my goals out there for a select group of friends to see helps me get nervous about the right things, I think. It gives me yet another reason to focus on my goals and stick to them, God willing. I have fought some serious emotional battles to be able to pour my heart out like I do in my Progress Reports. And also, with accountability, comes trust. I know this from personal experience: when I read about other people, I can see the pattern that emerges out of their efforts. I can see how they started and how they succeeded (or failed!). Honesty has that effect on people: they trust you more. God willing.
I have so far given two TEDx talks. I have been invited to many top universities in Pakistan to give lectures on entrpreneurship and blogging. Some friends think that I must know a lot to be able to do those things. Reading the Progress Reports will show that I don’t. Also, the fact that I try to go on adventures which are relatively expensive (such as the international tour of Abu Dhabi to run a freakin’ Triathlon – hells yeah! 😛 ) or a hike up the Naanga Parbat basecamp, may make others think that I am rich. I define rich differently (and it has little to do with money). Note that travel especially is hardly about money, it’s more about priorities. Any traveller (note I said a traveler, not a tourist) will vouch for this. So when I write about my projects and goals and rituals, I get to show you how mundane many of the things are. And also, as a solid bonus, I hope to inspire you take focused action on your own dreams and goals in life. God willing, reading the Progress Reports, you will see that if I can do it, anyone can do it.

So after I’ve gone all philosophical on you, click the link below to read the latest progress report.

This eBook is 70+pages thick, packed with information and actionable advice on how I earned my first 1700 US dollars to afford a luxury trip to Thailand with my wife!

I used Clickbank as the platform and received money via checks. Complete and honest details are shared in the eBook.

Why This Book Was Written

This was my first real adventure in terms of earning money online and using it to fund an adventure! I wrote the eBook after I saw how many people asked me how I did it.

I initially planned on selling the eBook, but after I had written it, decided to make it available exclusively for subscribers of the blog. I remember thinking: if I am serious about blogging, then I should be serious about getting new subscribers and making them feel welcomed!

You can also read the testimonials this eBook got (real people earning real money because of the eBook).  Note: You don’t need to sign up to download the eBook, instead use the link on this special page to download the eBook instantly.

Many companies and organizations have mission statements. Few have mantras. Just add venture is the mantra.

It is an easy reminder when we’re stuck.

lifeetc-momekh-blog-splash1

Not happy with my financial situation right now? Just add venture.

Not happy with my health right now? Too fat or too thin? Just add venture.

Can’t figure out how to solve _____? You guessed it, just add them ventures. Shake the equation up, let the variables fall where they may, experiment and get results. Repeat.

Don’t we take a lot of things way too seriously? Whereas someone else just “makes it look easy” and gets the same job done? The “Just” is a reminder to keep it light, have fun with it, don’t take it too seriously. In fact, treat it as an experiment. “What will happen if I add this little venture to my life?” Test it out. I wish you all the best!

Because of my triathlon exploits and micro-businesses, I was invited on a morning show. Juggan Kazim was the host.

I was asked, live on air, how I get my business ideas. Wha whaat!!? But the answer came quickly and I really don’t know why it came so quickly. I said “through movement”. In Urdu, I used the famous phrase “harkat may barkat” (there is blessing in movement).

But that stuck in my mind. I was (and still am) taken aback at how correct the answer was, and how little I had to do with coming up with it. The more I thought about it, this “harkat may barkat” became all the more profound. Blessing in movement!

Just add venture is a way of translating that into English. To live a life of adventure, just add venture to your life.
