Few things are worse than that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you realize you forgot something critical. Whether it's the answer to an important question on a final exam, the keys to your truck that just got locked inside, or the path you need to take to return home from a day hike, forgetfulness negatively affects many aspects of our lives.
