A lot of times when I start editing I get frustrated because there are so many options on what to do and I either forget what I was doing, or forget how I did something before that I liked after trying something new. So my question is:

When editing, what are your "go to" tools? And do you have a specific process or do you just do wing it and keep what looks the best?

The sharpen never works for me, maybe its my computer. But I usually fuck around with filters, and the color balance. Basically all those options for photos. I guess I'm looking for a systematic quicker approach and there isn't one
