I have frequent short term memory problems which greatly interfere with my productivity. What is the reason?

Many possibilities. Short term memory loss can be due to a variety of causes. In younger individuals where we are less concerned about dementia, the most common reason for the loss is stress. Stress "occupies" our brain and some things don't "stick to our brain" as well as it should. Older individuals need to be concerned about the possibility of dementia. See your doctor if you continue to have memory issues.
