  • The Procrastinators 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

    4.I shall meet all of my deadlines directly in proportion to
    the amount of bodily injury I could expect to receive 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 until 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.

    I would have replied earlier but I put off reading it.

    That sounds like some good advice.

        How true. How true. And my favorite:

        Never do today what you can successfully put off until tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow....

          Procrastination and apathy go hand in hand.
          If anyone really cared I may have got around to finding a cure for both.

              Our company motto is:

              If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would ever get done.

              These folks are the greatest about putting stuff off. Let's see how long we can stall the client.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
