There is eclectic thought process. It bounces from one thing to another. It's not as chaotic as you might think.
It can be as simple as word association. One thought leads to another. A specific topic can render specific results. Some fit some don't. See what works.
Write thoughts down. Trying to juggle them all can be daunting. And if something escapes into the ethos, just wait. The old adage if it's important it'll come back is often true. Then again don't worry if it doesn't. Alternatives come.

Whiteboard helps organized main and tangent points, reminders etc.

Just bouncing ideas.
So, try not to tilt, mind your bumpers and don't forget to use the flippers.
