The Procrastinator's Creed

I'm doing both Thankful Thursday and Thursday Thirteen today...and to be able to do that is something I am so grateful!

Enormous blessings showered me this week...and I sit here reflecting on what goodness have I done in life to deserve what I have...most especially the people around me who cares so much for me.

I can type the same thing over and over every Thursday for these are the things which I am most grateful for...you may get tired reading it...yet I just want to make it a point never to be too tired to celebrate all the glories I have...after all, life is beautiful!

I am now getting way better and my mood is picking up slowly...so, I'm rebounding...without any mood pills...praise God!

For a change...I'm trying something light for today...and I hope you will all enjoy my list...


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 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 infinitesmally 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.


This is list is never to encourage procrastination...it's just that, I'd like to look at this list as a reminder to pause and not to take life too seriously...it's already too serious as it is!


Everyday is the best time
to give thanks!

I'm so glad you're feeling better, Mariposa! It looks like you're getting some perspective on work, too.

Huge hugs!

LOL … I enjoyed your ‘light-hearted list’ today and am delighted you’re feeling better. Mine’s up early too because I’ve got my advanced PSE6 class early tomorrow morning and won’t have time to post before I go.
Hugs and blessings,
