Trying to figure out my state of mind...
According to Webster online dictionary:
1 a: the act or process of concentrating : the state of being concentrated ; especially : direction of attention to a single object b: an academic major or area of focus within a major
NOTE: Please see my favorite definition highlighted in my favorite color, grey. How informative/insightful. However, if one of them had to describe my attitude now it would most likely be... the definition highlighted in a lighter grey (my second favorite color); the single object being of course, my job.
Pronunciation: \prə-ˈkras-tə-ˌnāt, prō-\
Inflected Form(s): pro·cras·ti·nat·ed; pro·cras·ti·nat·ing
Latin procrastinatus, past participle of procrastinare, from pro- forward + crastinus of tomorrow, from cras tomorrow
transitive verb : to put off intentionally and habitually intransitive verb : to put off intentionally the doing of something that should be done
NOTE: Thing that should be done - work, thing that is intentionally being put off - work. It seems that we are getting somewhere.
Pronunciation: \ˈin-t(ə-)rəst; ˈin-tə-ˌrest, -ˌtrest; ˈin-tərst\
Middle English, probably alteration of earlier interesse, from Anglo-French & Medieval Latin; Anglo-French, from Medieval Latin, from Latin, to be between, make a difference, concern, from inter- + esse to be — more at is
Date: 15th century
1 a (1): right, title, or legal share in something (2): participation in advantage and responsibility b: business , company 2 a: a charge for borrowed money generally a percentage of the amount borrowed b: the profit in goods or money that is made on invested capital c: an excess above what is due or expected
NOTE: It is possible that it is a lack of interest. At the moment there is no special attention to the object being my work.
Inflected Form(s): la·zi·er; la·zi·est
perhaps from Middle Low German lasich feeble; akin to Middle High German erleswen to become weak
NOTE: Now I'm just mad. Since when are you lazy just because you are not energetic or vigorous?!?!?!
Key Insight #1 – People started being lazy before they started to procrastinate
Key Insight #2 – People started to procrastinate before they started to concentrate
Key Insight #3 – Timeline: Laziness à Procrastination à Concentration
Key Insight #4 – I might be lazy, which is the mother of my present situation

Hello, who cares what you did today, or how you feel... say something funny or entertaining.
So I took the time to google (notice I did not search the web. I google [Google: verb - to search on the web]) a joke:
Evils of Liquor
A professor of chemistry wanted to teach his fifth grade class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he produced an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey, and two worms.
"Now, class. Observe the worms closely," said the professor as he put the first worm into the water. The worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be.The second worm, he put into the whiskey. It writhed painfully, and it quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a doornail.
"Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?" the professor asked.Little Johnny, who naturally sits in back, raised his hand and wisely, responded, "Drink whiskey and you won't get worms!"
Not my choice of drink, but hey... I laughed, very deep inside.
