'International Procrastination Day': A Holiday You Can Celebrate Whenever

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The founder of International Procrastination Day -- observed Friday, or whenever -- is urging people to push the pause button on their overscheduled lives.

David d`Equainville, French author of `Manifesto for a Day Put Off,` told The Daily Telegraph of London he advocates "positive procrastination" as an act of resistance to a high-speed, high-tech culture."



International Procrastination Day is a holiday I really believe in, and I might get around to observing it this weekend.

Procrastination isn`t synonymous with laziness or lack of initiative, it`s a rebellion against conformity and tyranny. Procrastinators are the heroes of this high-tech world where the masses are ruled by schedules, clocks and overbearing bosses.

Observing folks running around like hamsters spinning in a wheel is quite entertaining, and it serves the purpose of reminding procrastinators that we are on the right path.

I can`t remember if I had promised my editor an article about procrastination, anyway I finally got around to it. That`s another good thing about procrastination, put off doing a task long enough and eventually you will forget about it.
