    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.

    I'm going to stop procrastinating as soon as Rebeldon does, I think.

    It took the original writer of this 23 years and 467 to-do lists to put that together.
