» Procrastinator's Creed
I believe that if anything is worth doing,
it would have been done already.
I shall never move quickly, except to avoid
more work or find excuses.
I will never rush into a job without a
lifetime of consideration.
I shall meet all of my deadlines directly
in proportion to the amount of bodily injury I could expect from missing them.
I firmly believe that tomorrow holds the
possibility for new technologies, astounding discoveries, and a reprieve from my
I truly believe that all deadlines are
unreasonable regardless of the amount of time given.
I shall never forget that the probability
of a miracle, though infinitesimally small, is not exactly zero.
If at first I don't succeed, there is
always next year.
I shall always decide not to decide, unless
of course I decide to change my mind.
I shall always begin, start, initiate, take
the first step, and/or write the first word, when I get around to it.
I obey the law of inverse excuses which
demands that the greater the task to be done, the more insignificant the work
that must be done prior to beginning the greater task.
I know that the work cycle is not
plan/start/finish, but is wait/plan/plan.
I will never put off tomorrow, what I can
forget about forever.
I will become a member of the ancient Order
of Two-Headed Turtles (The Procrastinator's Society) if they ever get it
