I tend to forget little things, not necessarily unimportant things. I can name all 140 students I teach. I can recite our bell schedule. I can tell you what meetings I have coming up in the next few days without looking at my calendar. I can remember books, phone numbers, conversations, and so on. But, I can't remember the answer you gave for the question I just asked, and I will probably ask you to tell me again.
So, I looked up some causes of forgetfulness and some tips for adapting to absentmindedness. I hope you will find some of the information useful.
