Use the Circle of Fifths man!

This is the best way to figure out progressions. Start from any note on the circle and try playing chords near it to include 7th, 9th, 11th and 13 chords. Don't forget the minor chords. Try substituting them all with Suspended and Augmented chords. The farther away the chord gets on the circle the less likely it will result in a good progression. This is not to be taken as a rule but a generallity. I could give you a list of common progressions but your question was how to figure them out for yourself.
