A diary is a good idea.Try and remember where you put it.
I have lists of what needs doing last winter somewhere, and the year before that. Creating a new list atm.
After a while you realise you don't have to know or remember everything, there are generals. Take early flowering shrubs, it doesn't matter what they are, they need pruning (if they need pruning) after flowering. Any other time and you've cut off the next lot of flowers.So that's just the one thing to know instead of lots.
