I Am The Queen Of Procrastination

Actually, I’m ‘The Queen’ of a lot of things and have been labeled that many times in my life … ‘The Lazy Queen’ (not so nice), the ‘Wine Queen’ (I’ll take that one).

One label I own in a self-resignation kind of way is ‘The Queen of Procrastination’. 

It’s a quality I admit to, can’t fight, was born with, and one that drives my husband and my mother insane!!! Like, quite literally to the very brink of insanity! You can see them getting red in the face in frustrated rage when they notice what I’m doing. My mom has kind of accepted it after 35 years, but I’d say it’s probably the second worst thing about me in my husband’s opinion.

You see they are the complete opposite to me. I almost always leave things until the last minute and then end up winging it. They, on the other hand, do everything as soon as it is known about, as soon as they can actually get it done, it will be done! They are awesome, I wish I could be like them, but I’m just not. Sorry. But … let’s give them a round of applause! (Love you both.)

There is a quote by Robin Sharma that says:

The activity you are most avoiding contains your biggest opportunity.

Whilst I agree in part, I wholly disagree when it comes to the following instances:

  • Cleaning the house
  • Filing
  • Folding Laundry
  • Going to the grocery store with kids

In ALL of these instances I am really NOT missing out on any opportunity. None!

Here is a list of things I’d rather do whilst procrastinating about any of those chores:

  • Blogging
  • Literally anything else!

This is the most perfect illustration to explain procrastination to someone who doesn’t get it:

The quote I hate the most is from Thomas Jefferson, and it’s one that I get told all the time:

Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.

Because I don’t want to do it!

The thing about us procrastinators is that we knoooowww! We know what we’re doing, and we can give you any number of excuses as to why we’re doing it. We just can’t help it, and don’t really care either.

Just in case you were wandering just how bad I am … I’m writing an entire blog post about procrastination, whilst procrastinating about everything on the first list in this post, and more.

Now  … where did I put my crown?

    1. I can sometime be on a roll, and start ticking things off my list, then I ‘reward’ myself by taking a break and then the rest never gets done.

  1. I’m sorry, but you are NOT the Queen of Procrastination. I am, and I ain’t abdicating. You may be the Princess of Procrastination, the Duchess of Procrastination or the Prime Minister of Procrastination, if you wish. Thanks so much for joining us for #FridayFrolics

  2. I’m a big time procrastinator too! Especially when it comes to cleaning but I have also procrastinated with important things like most of my blog to-do’s. Oh and I love your Friends clip! I just finished binge watching the show and it brought back so many memories:)

  3. Love it! I hear you on the Procratination….I suffer, albeit self induced, from Procrastination too…
    Somehow, my little Spirited Family fits into MY mould. Even though my husband is a doer, he is very selective in his doing…well so am I. LoL
