Hard-to-process 'misc.' ideas/brainstorms/thoughts
I'm having trouble with these kind of miscellaneous ideas/brainstorms/thoughts. They might be ideas in their own right, but may relate partly to a current project and also turn into an open-ended brainstorm that could go in several other directions, or cause me to rethink/dwell on fundamental aspects. With no kind of external guidance or clarification, this stuff is clogging up the system and my head.
Any ideas? Am I missing some obvious thing that everyone else just 'gets'?
