However, you may not have learned the skills to ignore it, sidestep it, or laugh in its face. (The notable exceptions here are those who suffer from depression or ADHD. Procrastination can be symptoms of these disorders.)

For the sake of this discussion, let's talk about procrastination related to tasks that you know must be done rather than habits you want to form or drop.

Habit creation or habit dropping are entirely different animals and require a different set of skills. I've written about habits before, .
