a classic chicken and egg situation


Does the expression ‘chicken and egg’ situation make sense in this context?
‘Well, if I ever make myself stand up to Ms Granger, I will risk ending up with a classic chicken and egg situation. Why did I miss the deadline? Because my time management is bad and so on.’

Thank you in advance.

For me, “chicken and egg” ought to have some element of endless circularity. I don’t exactly see where that arises here.
