Am I Done Yet?

When I get towards the end of a study, I want to be done. I don't want to finish it. This is one of my worse tendencies. I would rather hand it off to someone for proofing and let them finish it. 
So, I asked the question in yesterday's class.  How exactly do I finish a study? Here are the answers I remember.
Mid-Values Study

Compare the values.
Compare the brights and dulls.
Compare the warms and cools.
Do you have sharp edges at your focal point?
Look at the shadows, the background and foreground. Is there variation?
Make slight adjustments. Again - slight adjustments. 
I think of it as checking your answers to a test before turning it in.  Remember to go over each question and answer to be sure they are correct.
