General advise

  • 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 you are overwhelmed with urgent work.
  • 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.
