I’d read around on this site. That sounds like ADHD to me. You’re hyperfocusing on the wrong things, and expecting yourself to act like you don’t have ADHD. You need to find a strategy that works for you. Don’t be too hard on yourself, and remember it takes a while to develop new habits.

Find something to get motivation, like a phrase or something, and put it where you can see it daily.

Lastly, besides reading the articles on this site, maybe an ADHD coach would be a good assist.
