Why put off doing something, when you can procrastinate on the
very act of procrastination!
Precrastination is the new name given to this once removed act of
nonaction. It manifests itself in the form of a calendar app, into
which you dutifully insert the various forward planning details. You
then set the Precrastination variables. Now when the dreaded next
day arrives that shows (for example - replace burnt out light bulbs
on Christmas tree), you will find that Precrastination has simply
shifted it forward in time, and replaced it with a suitably important reason for
non-doing from its massive library of entirely justifiable excuses.
To add to its desire, points are awarded for the amount of
incompleted tasks that are perpetually pushed into the future along
the time line, all having been replaced with a record of more
"Would you like to enter your Precrastination details now?" - Can I think about that tomorrow?
||Postponing that determination has been designated for a future date.
||This could work nicely as a printed calendar, that looks perfectly ordinary at a glance, but all of the dates are relative ("tomorrow," "next week" etc). Anything written on the calendar would never get done, ever.
||And here I thought this would be about doing things LONG
before they actually needed to get done.
||// incompleted tasks that are perpetually pushed into the future along the time line //
||I'd rather see them drop down the cliff when they have been postponed long enough, leaving no trace of their past urgency.
||Ill just download it tomorrow
