This may be just a passing phenomena due to extra stress. Depending your age this may be early sign of dementia. If such things happen regularly, better visit your doctor.
Even if this is signs of dementia, you need not to worry. After clearing other causes like diabetes or hypertension,some "simple" steps delay dementia; healthy food, good sleep, exercise and mental and social engagements.

First the very basic question, why do you want to switch “career”? Choice of profession should be based on personal interest. If you have interest in a field, you will excel otherwise it will be just a job.
Sharp mind does help in many endeavors more so in Sciences than Business. Most individuals in every profession think that their profession requires most sharp minds and accountants are no exceptions.
If you are worrying about / comparing salaries then wait and reevaluate your priorities. What do you want in life? Bags full of money or a happy life?
Accounting is not mathematics or statistics. It involves lot of numbers but little math. Data work will help you but to a limited extent. As of keeping updated on new scientific research verses new legislature, just keep in mind that laws of nature are much better structured than human laws, just see the bickering in parliaments and in tax/ accounting professional circles.
Last there will never be a chance to win Noble prize in Accountancy. Base your choice on your personal interest, instead of proposing the most beautiful girl in the town propose to the one you love.

Views from Pakistan
Outsourcing stays clear of immigration issues. Exporting work is no different than importing goods. Would anyone imagine a world where there is no international trade? When we consume imported goods, in essence we are transferring (manufacturing) work to some other country. So what is different transferring services work? As of quality the issue is same for imported goods and outsourcing. Exporting countries do have certain comparative advantage that is why they are in business. The key is, as already mentioned, invest in training and keep supervision to get long term benefits. Further outsourcing generally transfers low value added work offshore and frees resources for more value added work at home.

Available for low volume outsource work
Firms outsourcing routine work will free resources for more value added work for their clients. UK economy is at much higher productivity level compared to say Pakistan, which will further increase by outsourcing while benefiting Pakistan economy. It is better to provide work in underdeveloped countries than aid (by UK Government).
I am FCA from Pakistani Institute. My son is ACCA affiliate. We both are working full time, so I would like to take outsourcing work on small scale at first. If it works out, we can leave our jobs to concentrate full time on outsourcing work. It can be expanded by taking on further staff if volume of work demands.
I have long work experience in Pakistan. I understand that outsource work will require new learning, which will be overhead for work provider in UK, the costs which can be compensated by very low charges initially. Later on wage differential will continue to be advantageous for both parties.
The work can comprise bookkeeping, accounting, routine taxation and any related work. I would repeat that to begin with I will prefer low volume work on continuous basis. I am ready to accept very low charges during our learning curve. Any queries are welcome.

Pivot table will work, however people not used to pivot tables, =SUMIFS(), as described by Richards offers more sense of control.
There is one more suggestion. Extract the month in a column by =MONTH(ref) and just run Data > Subtotal and sub total on Change in month. Collapse the outline, you will have subtotals only, expand and see details.
