Procrastinator's creed

One last assignment for this semester before the exams.

Lost my momentum quite some time ago, and haven’t found it back. Its time to hit that panic button again. Provided that the button is still working. I’ve been hitting that button too many times.

I procrastinate too much. I should be enjoying this long weekend. Argh. I thought nobody would ask me out this long weekend, that why I push the assignment to this week. But someone ask me out at the last minute. Cannot go, cannot go. I got assignment to do. Don’t tempt me with all those emails.

Couldn’t believe that you are having so much fun out there and I’m here doing my assignment.

Ok, back to the assignment.

I’m going to burn this procrastinator’s creed…. maybe tomorrow… or next semester…. or… errr… damn… I’m procrastinating again….

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 to receive from missing them.

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

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 until 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 organized.
