Procrastinator's Creed


I believe that if anything is worth doing right now, it would have been done already.

I will never rush into a job without a long period of adequate consideration.

I will meet all of my deadlines directly in proportion to the amount of serious injury I could expect to receive from missing them.

I shall never move quickly, except to avoid more work or to find excuses.

I shall never forget that the probability of a miracle, though infinitesimally small, is never exactly zero.

If at first I don't succeed, there is always next year.

I truly believe that all deadlines are unreasonable regardless of the amount of time given.

I shall always decide not to decide, unless of course I decide to change my mind.

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 firmly believe that tomorrow holds the possibility for new technologies, astounding discoveries, and a reprieve from my obligations.

I will never put off until tomorrow what I can forget about forever.

And finally, I will become a member in good standing of the Official Procrastinator's Society, if they ever get it organized.
