Try to shift (very gently) into the big chainring/big cog. If the chain's too short to make it, you need a longer chain.

I would not recommend "trying to remember" not to shift into it. You'll do it by accident when you're tired on a long ride or busy paying attention during a race. And when you do it'll cost you way more than a new chain would.
