Just a general life hack I've developed as a person with problems being scatterbrained, when I was having some success with cactus I left a water pitcher near them as a reminder to myself. I left them at my old apartment with a bunch of strangers and it seemed successful to the point that they're blooming at last check. Some basic assed advice but it's apparently so effective its utility is intuitive when casually observed.
I leave myself reminders all over so I don't starve to death or some stupid shit because I'm so good at distracting myself with a million thoughts, ideas, projects and errands. I can't really think of a better example than the water pitcher but I seriously do this constantly and without a thought throughout the day
