Get diagnosis: Go get a diagnosis by the doctor. This may help you qualify for stimulant medication that may help with your symptoms. Also may benefit from therapy that would help you prioritize better and make checklists

Get tested: Testing helps to determine the real problem areas of attention (shifting, task control, sustained attention, susceptibility to distraction etc). After testing, a comprehensive plan can be made to help with both pharmaceutical strategies and non-invasive life strategies to manage the issues more successfully.
