Hi kudesai-ga

It's a neat idea!  And the translation is short and sweet:

                   cras agam   (literally: I will do it tomorrow)

or if you want to emphasize a particular "it"

                   illud cras agam   (literally: That, I will do tomorrow)

In Latin the verb comes at the end of the phrase.  The Latin "id" is
the equivalent of "it" but is omitted with a transitive verb such as
agere (agam) unless "it" is to be emphasized as in the second
expession using "illud".

This phrase would make a great desk sign for a proscrastinator. (Note
the "cras" in that handy word.)
