The Procrastination Challenge

So recently an email dropped into my inbox that left me rather intrigued. Receiving emails from PR companies and brands has to be one of my favourite things about blogging. It’s opened my eyes up to so many different opportunities.

Monach Airlines got in contact with me recently and have set me a challenge. The challenge is to cut down on the amount of time I spend procrastinating. As a student it is safe to say that procrastinating is one of my favourite past times. During exam season I go as far as cleaning the house to avoid revising. There are so many projects that I’ve wanted to get involved with over the years. However, I’ve always felt that I haven’t had the time. With studying dentistry, part time work and then maintaining some sort of social life, I always feel stretched for time. Which got me thinking, maybe there is something I could give up to make time for some of those things I’ve always wanted to do.

Monach airlines have launched a new feature on their website in which you input how long you spend doing an activity per week. The feature will then show you where you could have flown to in the world for the same amount of time.

The Challenge:

This week I will set about restricting the time I spend watching films. I’m an avid movie fan and love keeping up with the latest releases. This isn’t helped by the fact that I’m currently at the family home in Devon for the summer. My Dad invested in a 50 inch TV complete with a surround sound system a few years back. Usually when I’m at home for the summer holiday Mum and I watch something most evenings together (although she is rather sensitive to any movies that are too sad, too violent or too depressing so that somewhat narrows down the film selections).

My challenge is that I will only be watching one movie this week, hopefully a trip out to see Dunkirk as I’ve heard amazing thing! With the time I’ll have saved I will be setting about continuing work on my novel. I’ve had the story-line set out for around a year, written a synopsis and then started chapter one. Unfortunately, after that it was a bit of an abandoned project when other life tasks got in the way.

I’ll be posting an update next week to let you know how I get on, in the meantime wish me luck!

    I’m awful when it comes to procrastinating. It doesn’t help that I work from home so there are so many distractions! This sounds like a great challenge – good luck!
