Discussion on: How do you get back into a side project after months?

I keep copious and detailed notes in Evernote for all my projects. I break things down step by step and my notes are often a sort of stream-of-consciousness where I record what went wrong, what worked, what didn't work (and most importantly why). I keep my "to do" items in there as well so that I have the whole context of what was happening, where I was, and since I never know when I'm going to have to disconnect from a side project for a week or a month, it's really important that I leave a "what's next?" Note for myself so that I can jump back in fairly quickly.
