We've talked before about multitasking while relaxing, but perhaps you've found (like I have) that sometimes you need a more concrete reminder to get some things done before the day is over?
I have a problem where I get home for work or class and I get too comfortable watching TV or something and I start to ignore the tasks that I had due today. I setup my reminder settings so that Remember The Milk will email on the day a task is due at 8:00pm (as opposed to sometime in the morning, like most people probably do).
This way when I am sitting around being unproductive, Remember The Milk will send me an email at 8:00pm letting me know if I have any tasks leftover for the day.
You can change your reminder time in the web app; see our Reminders Guide for all the details.
