Meet my procrastination jar sitting on a pile of books on my desk. This is a new trick I’ll be trying out to keep me focused during my month of challenges. It’s a bit like a game and a learning exercise.
Every time I procrastinate I will write the reason for it and post it in my jar. In two weeks time I will get all the pieces of paper out and post the reasons on the blog. Hopefully, this will help me to identify what stops me from working and would also give me some ideas how to avoid procrastination or at least I will get to know myself and my working habits better.
I think I need the procrastination jar now more than ever having promised that I’ll have at least 2 hours worth writing sessions daily for my academic writing challenge and about an hour of exercise for the gym challenge. All of that on top of my fieldwork taking place three mornings a week!
Now, time to go back to work and do some final preparations for November – the month of challenges… Bring it on!
