Hi there. I sort of have a problem with getting started on things unless someone or something kicks me in the ass and tells me 'go! do! now!'. So I need some serious, low tech, low budget ass-kicking. Any ideas on how to achieve this? (I manage to make my bed some time during the day, generally the very second I see your reminder to do it [which is awesome, thanks], but I usually don't manage much more than that, and it's just not enough any more).
Set alarms. Use browser add-ons like Self Control to limit your recreational internet usage. Get yourself an accountability buddy who will, in fact, tell you to go and do it now.
