It was 2.19 am in the morning. The sound of the new year fireworks began fade away. I was so glad this morning, things went as I planned; I started to write my blogging data base ideas, while every body started to sleep.

I decided to do so, after some success experiences on these last couple months.

It has a couple days I tried my new-productivity plan; waking up early, doing Tahajud Sal’ah, and listing the to-do. I found the pattern after a long way journey on time management.

I am also glad, that finally I achieved many things this year.

People who joined on this groups mostly are digital product developers, translators, copy writers, and so on. Listening to their conversation, gave me new insights, there are so many opportunities out there, as long as I open for a new oppurtunity.
