Consistently applying effective procrastination solutions
I find that there are several approaches to procrastination that usually work pretty well for me, depending on why I'm procrastinating. If it's because I feel I "should" do something and I'm rebelling against that, I remind myself that I'm choosing to do it, that I want to do it. If the thing feels overwhelming or anxiety-provoking, I identify the very next physical action (a la David Allen & Getting Things Done) or set the timer for some short period of time to work on it (e.g., 1 min, 5 mins, 15 mins).
Problem: Even though these strategies work more often than not, I often don't remember them (even though they're posted on a piece of paper taped to my computer) or won't do them when I do remember them. Any suggestions about getting yourself to do what works?
