Doht! I could have had a V-8! Mental trigger trick needed
You've all probably seen the commercial, where the person smacks themselves on the head because they're not drinking a V-8 vegetable juice drink. Well, for the last three days I've mentally been smacking myself in the head because I can't seem to remember to take the April parking tag out of my pocket and hang it on the rearview mirror where the March tag is now. I guess I could put an alarm in my BlackBerry to go off during my 30-minute commute, but there must be an easier, simpler way to trick the mind to recall a planned action item when the appropriate context arises. Thoughts?
Mental trigger suggestion--key ring?
Have you tried attaching the tag to your car keys? Or your commuter cup (if you have one)? The idea is to put it somewhere where it will be right in front of you in the car (as opposed to in your pocket).
