Procrastination Is The Lazy Man’s Excuse


In college, I was told by my Nigerian boyfriend that, “procrastination is the lazy man’s excuse” is a Nigerian proverb his father would tell him as a child. Considering I’m not Nigerian, I can neither confirm or deny this, but I always thought it made sense. So in honor of my ex from college & his father, I’m officially crowning myself the “Queen of Procrastination”.

As of today, I’ve gotten absolutely NOTHING accomplished for my business trip to Phoenix, Arizona. I have laundry I still need to complete, I have to also pack the kid’s things, so he can head over to his aunt’s house for the rest of the week and I need to clean my house, so it won’t look like the disaster area it is currently, when I return. On top of that, I have about 100+ new faculty positions I need to fill by the start of the new semester at my job.

Right now, the only thing I’m looking forward to is the plane taking off and sitting back in the seat and breathing a sigh of relief, because although it is a business trip, the time alone will do me good! So as I sit here at work, procrastinating and writing this post, when I should be actually working, I am fulfilling my duties as the “Queen of Procrastination”. Apparently, I’m not trying to change any time soon!

    Girl, I was just talking about this the other day. I am a fool for procrastination, I feel like it's in my blood or something. I have to struggle each day and push myself to do the things on my to-do list. It's something that I deal with on the daily. You are not alone.

    Is it possible that a person can work better, when they procrastinate? I'd like to volunteer to prove that theory.

    It's a state of mind girl. I know, I know, it sounds cliche, but believe me, I'm not criticizing, because I know how you feel. I'm working on changing the way I think so I can break some bad habits… procrastination being one of them.

    Procrastination should be my Middle name. I don't know where I get it from. Neither of my Parents were like that. But oh, well. We all have our bad habits.
