Sound like my history of working in Labs, the key is planning your day, and putting similar negs /sizes on specific enlargers and this training will negate the note taking , as you get really good at looking at the easel , watching the print emerge and knowing when you have made a good print.

They used to say the expected rate for a good technician was ten negs an hour. Multiple enlargers and a good printing strategy will save lots of time. And, believe me, these were quality prints, with dodging and burning. (I didn't have to do the washing and drying.)
