Picturing what the meter tells you has merit, though for decades I've recorded all such information in notebooks. Most Sekonics remember the last metering session (e.g. the L758/D) until cleared — especially useful for involved multi-spot readings.
My pet trick is to use small patches of Velcro attached to cable remotes cords etc to stop them dangling around in windy conditions to to hold in place when changing over cameras.
If leaving leaders out of film spools, make absoutely sure after exposing the roll to mark that leader top and bottom, visible day and night. Maybe even slap an adhesive label on and record the roll/sequence number if not reloading it.
