I find that my answer (somewhere between always and frequently) parallels the
way I approach a project that I plan to do from scratch. I research, if
necessary. I sketch. I list. I review. I go over things to see if any of it is
out of order or physically impossible. I analyze it to see if step one should be
"put the dogs outside and the cats in the basement."

In other words, I'm a very methodical person. I suppose I was destined to become
a tech writer. I've taken innumerable aptitude tests in hopes of discovering a
new and exciting career for which I'm ideally suited. Always comes up tech
writer. Of course, my next project could be *developing* a new and exciting
career for which I'm ideally suited...

If you can remain calm, you
just don't have all the facts.
