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.)
