This is more or less how I live.

Hi Maddie,

I have a similar problem. What i have done previously is to take a screen shot of my to-do list on my phone, and set that as the screen saver on my phone.

Like many others here have identified, the issue is consistency!

To solve that, i set an alarm on the phone that goes off every day when i wake up to make sure that i make that list the phone screen background.

Even then, i still have consistency problems. But as they say it takes '21 times' to form a habit. Now just to apply the discipline to do it 21 times...!

What's worse is it takes months to rebound and be ready to try a routine again.

I don't think an alarm would help. I probably need a coach. =( I think that it's setting up the routine, I procrastinate. And I make such good progress while on task, that it takes a few months before I fall behind again, for where I am in my life struggling with ADHD... pretty low expectations right now.
I've had this exact same problem. I think a lot of people need to realize that part of the problem with ADHD IS motivation (inconsistent at least). That's why I really want to set up some kind of reward/punishment system app to improve motivation to get things done--anyway, that's a long story. I am going to try the phone reminder though.
