Start with what a colleague of mine calls a manual backup device—pen and paper.
I tried to download "pen and paper" - could not find it anywhere :-)
Those are indeed my most important tool so far.
Carl, thanks for the link, some interesting stuff there for sure!
I would be very curious to see some documents (or examples) of seom people plan their work, or do you all just start programming....? Is there anybody out there who might be willing to share an example?
Check out agile, there's some good methods to work with/on behalf of the client there. And planning/dev methods.

I just found this Technical Brief authored by Ray Cologon which I think is a must read. Even though I have answered many of my questions in the original post simply by working on a few solutions I find this guide very helpful!
