There are a lot of things that I have learned from this fellowship program. Overall it’s been a short but very productive journey.

There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.

Most Important Learning

Choosing one is a difficult process when you have learned a lot from a journey but the thing which I got to learn from Amal interactions was the most basic thing which everyone should know in earlier stages of his or her life and that is JUST DO IT.

(Keep calm and just do it)


On a candid note, these three words are actually more magical than the so-called magical words. These words actually change the whole thinking process of the person. Just do it, it’s actually a kind of a mindset which differentiate a person from being a doer or procrastinator. A set of beliefs of a person to act and behave in a particular manner when he or she meets a particular situation.

Impact Of The Learning

We usually waste our time by over planning and less execution. This is the most common type of issue which everyone has to deal with irrespective of the nature of work they do. Everyone does go through the planning process but usually, we got stuck there and the only way out is by thinking with a mindset of Just Do It.

I use it a lot in my daily routine now actually this technique allows me to overcome the fear of the outcome. When we were given the task of fund collection for Edhi foundation, I was worried at the start, I was like how we are going to do it with not having any past experience of collecting donations or doing any similar kind of activity. What helped me in leading this activity was this mindset of not thinking about the result before starting rather Just Start And Do It. In the end, this actually worked out, the path got caved by every step taken.

Now Or Never

Now after developing this mindset I take a lot of things as an opportunity rather than thinking about the pros and cons of it. I feel free to make decisions, because while making I only take the present into consideration and not procrastinating about the outcome of the action at the start.

When you start thinking in this way you get free from a thousand thoughts coming to your mind what if it turns out to be this or that. Why this theory is the most successful is it because it frees your mind from the constraints of results.

Thank You

Taking this as an opportunity I would like to say thanks to team Amal. Special Thanks to Mr. Hamza (PA) and Ms. Nimra (PM) for your continuous support. Both of you have been the most integral part of this careership program. I hope to inspire others as both of you have inspired us.
