“Do it tomorrow. You’ve made enough mistakes today”

“Do it tomorrow. You’ve made enough mistakes (for) today” is a saying that has been printed on many images.
       
“Mrs. Harper Richards is bemused by the motto: ‘Do it tomorrow—you’ve made enough mistakes today’” was printed in the Chicago (IL) Sunday Tribune on May 20, 1956. “And I thoroughly agree with a sign Paul Wentz of Sherman Oaks saw in a San Fernando Valley restaurant: ‘Do It Tomorrow—You’ve Made Enough Mistakes Today!’” was printed in the Los Angeles (CA) Times on June 4, 1956. “Defense Secretary Charles E. Wilson has a sign on his desk reading: ‘Do it tomorrow—You’ve made enough mistakes today’” was printed in The Washington Post and Times Herald (Washington, DC) on June 4, 1956.
     
“SIGNS FOR SOMEBODY’S OFFICE WALL: ‘Do It Tomorrow. You’ve Made Enough Mistakes for Today’” was printed in the Atlantic Coast Line News in 1958. “Do it tomorrow - you’ve made enough mistakes for today!” was posted on the newsgroup rec.music.makers.saxophone on June 8, 1997. “Do it tomorrow. You’ve made enough mistakes for today” was printed in the book Blonde Walks into a Bar: The 4,000 Most Hilarious, Gut-Busting Gags, One-liners and Jokes (2008) by Jonathan Swan.
