Have you tried making yourself accountable to someone else? This trick often works because we inherently don’t want to let other people down. Maybe you tell a friend you’re planning to start cleaning up your kitchen at 3 pm today and plan to be finished by 3pm tomorrow. Then you check in with your friend (ideally they check in with you) to discuss progress and successes.
