Funny Procrastination Quotes & Jokes

Like most people, I’ve struggled with procrastination throughout my life.

Sometimes it’s worse than normal, and it can be debilitating, knock my confidence and leave me frustrated. However, I usually find that being aware of it is quite fascinating.

Because the more I learn to identify when and most importantly why I’m procrastinating, the more I understand my thoughts, and how to redirect them to how I want to be thinking and acting.

 After I psycho-analyze myself, I then try and look on the lighter side by turning to funny quotes and jokes all about procrastination. Because humor generally helps in these matters, and what’s not funnier than our human minds attempting to trip ourselves up via a handy tool called ‘procrastination’?
