Capture that mood in your NA
Figuring out and then being able to start right away with working on something is an approach that works great... if your work does come to you in a serial type of way and you don't get anything new unless the old has been finished. Unfortunately that is rarely (I should probably say "never") the case. If you have, let's say, 10 new e-mails and you start working on the project the first one is related to (after figuring out goals, outcome, ...) then "who knows what's in the other nine"? Maybe there's something in there that's much more urgent.
