Anna, firstly thanks for sharing: hopefully the replies here demonstrate that you’re not alone. Also, like others on here, I think the key is to recognise that it will happen, develop tools to manage it & know that some days these tools will work better than others. I have a fairly physical job with many steps & I find that verbalising the completed steps helps me remember, but also informs the rest of the team. That way, I can use everyone else’s brain to check my own by asking others if the task was done. For the things that are less physical, I write it into my Bullet Journal (my “brain dump”). This allows me to forget about it without worrying too much, as I know it’s somewhere. Take care & good luck, Luke
