Action triggersUsing action triggers is a great way to prompt yourself to do something. The basic concept is to link one action to another in a way that automatically triggers it.

Setting your alarm for 3:23pm on your workdays can trigger you to pray Colossians 3:23: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Every time you sit down to lunch you can use that as a trigger to reassess your afternoon priorities.

Action triggers can be negative as well. People who are trying to quit smoking need to be aware of action triggers that set off the desire for a cigarette– such as pouring a cup of coffee. Any two actions you associate with one another can become action triggers for each other.

What do you want to remember to do? What action trigger might you set to help you remember to do that?
