General advise

  • When making a mistake, admit that you did it and learn from it so as to focus on not repeating it.
  • Whenever you are not sure about what to do, especially when doing something potentially irreversible, ask a colleague for advise.
  • 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. In such cases, instead, go and grab what you can start doing right away from that pile.
  • 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.
