How could Sammy have written notes if he couldn't remember anything for more than 2 minutes?

He wrote down everything he thought was of importance at the point he experienced it.
The reason why he remembers that he should take notes in the first place (which he shouldn't be able to - since he started taking notes after his incident) is probably because ever since he took the first note, his next "self" would think he usually takes notes since all his current information points towards that.

I was asking about about Sammy Jankis. Leonard said that Sammy wrote down notes but he messed up. He didn't have a system like him. Unless you think that Leonard is really Sammy Jankis.

Leonard is not Sammy. But, it is Leonard who took a million notes and got lost. (look at all of his papers back in the hotel) Sammy couldn't even write down "Ellen called".
