*When making a mistake, '''admit''' that you did it and '''learn''' from it so as to focus on not repeating it.
*Ask for '''help''' when needed, especially when you are not sure about what to do, especially when doing something potentially irreversible. Also ask for help in moments where whenever there is a high risk that you are overwhelmed with urgent workwill not achieve what you need to do within a clinically acceptable time. For '''prioritizing''' when you have more than one thing ongoing at the same time, the list at right can be used.
*'''Do not wait for the whole pile'''. Whenever you can, do not be idle or do less urgent work while there is a pile of more urgent work gathering for you elsewhere. Instead, be familiar with where such piles are forming, and go there and grab whatever you may start working on right away.
*For larger specimens that need fixation before final grossing, you can still '''start writing''' a report of measurements and other externally visible findings to save time for later.
*Ask yourself if your report is clinically '''plausible''', but at the same time, do not make up things that you do not see just to fit the clinical picture.<noinclude>
