I cannot do things automatically

I know that some people do things automatically and then don't remember that/whether they have done it. Are there also people here who simply cannot do routine things automatically? (Thinking of locking a bike/door, turning off the gas, or even taking out the trash.)

Literally, if I cannot recall doing something (i.e. with conscious effort) then I have not done it at all. Locking a bike for instance. I rarely ever wonder whether I have done it, I simply look back and see/recall (not) doing it. That is not due to my amazing *ahum* short term memory, and more often than not it turns out that I have NOT done what I was supposed to be doing.

It's just so tiring. Wonder if this is an ADHD thing.
