Procrastination cliches

Overused phrases and often not that funny jokes and cliches about procrastination:


"never put off until tomorrow that which you can put off until the day after tomorrow"


The word comes from Latin "procrastinus", which freely translated comes close to "forward to tomorrow".

one of the quick definitions would be (and that's just because I don't have time to procrastinate thinking out a better one): putting things off and avoiding them for as long as possible, despite conscious willingness and perhaps even desire to get them done

Don't let the esoteric or scammy sounding titles of some fool you. The ones I have read were prime example of the power of our mind in action, and contained rather simple yet effective laws on how the universe and our minds operate.

some other authors and thinkers

These people didn't do anything that is directly related to time management, laziness nor procrastination. Yet, their works cover related or general areas of self-help and I thought they might be of help.

First coming is Dr. Robert Anthony, author of some of the most influential self-help books that I have read.

Procrastinator's Creed

   1. I believe that if anything is worth doing, it would have been done already.
   2. I shall never move quickly, except to avoid more work or find excuses.
   3. I will never rush into a job without a lifetime of consideration.
   4. I shall meet all of my deadlines directly in proportion to the amount of bodily injury I could expect from missing them.
   5. I firmly believe that tomorrow holds the possibility for new technologies, astounding discoveries, and a reprieve from my obligations.
   6. I truly believe that all deadlines are unreasonable regardless of the amount of time given.
   7. I shall never forget that the probability of a miracle, though infinitesimally small, is not exactly zero.
   8. If at first I don't succeed, there is always next year.
   9. I shall always decide not to decide, unless of course I decide to change my mind.
  10. I shall always begin, start, initiate, take the first step, and/or write the first word, when I get around to it.
  11. 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.
  12. I know that the work cycle is not plan/start/finish, but is wait/plan/plan.
  13. I will never put off tomorrow, what I can forget about forever.
  14. I will become a member of the ancient Order of Two-Headed Turtles (The Procrastinator's Society) if they ever get it organized.
