  • 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.

                After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

                At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

                I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
                Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
