In brief: Many things
Certainly adhd is much better recognized in children and adults now than it was years ago.
However, problems with concentration and memory can have many causes. If it's worrying you and impairing your ability to function, seek an evaluation, possibly starting with your primary care doctor. If it's just occasionally misplacing your keys, you may just be being human.
