2013 DEADLINE SPRINT
Date: Friday 29 November 2013
Time: 8:00pm – 8:00am
Are you a serial procrastinator? Buried under piles of unfinished work? Haunted by the ghosts of unopened envelopes and unanswered emails? Do you really want to start 2014 in such a mess!? Whether you have unfinished business, have been trying to find the time to focus and start a new project, or you just like the sound of an overnight working spree with other creative minds, join us for SUPERMARKT’s 2013 Deadline Sprint!
At the start of the evening our official Deadline Sprint coach and psychologist will give us some introductory words of motivation and tips for a productive evening of work. Participants will then sign our Deadline Sprint contract, specifying their planned deadline goals for the long night ahead.
Our café/bar will be open for service throughout the night. Some complimentary light refreshments will also be served including a midnight snack and a light breakfast at the end of the sprint. We will provide all the facilities needed for focused work, including hi-speed internet, ambient lighting, comfortable seats, and a rest zone with comfortable couches. At sunrise, the ritual destroying of the contracts will take place when (hopefully) the majority of deadlines have been completed successfully.
The Deadline Sprint functions as a kind of ‘work retreat’ where we will take care of you and prepare your mind and body to face those looming deadlines head on. You are welcome to bring any unfinished business (either physical or digital) and complete it right here at SUPERMARKT. So join us for this all-nighter challenge, and feel free to bring your friends and colleagues along too. We look forward to seeing just how much we can get done together, all through the power of communal work and mutual motivation!
