I find that I get fatigue from color-correcting too. I can really get lost looking at color-correction options in a movie. Then I look away for a few minutes and look back and... everything looks different.

Man, I cannot tell you how thankful I am that we do everything "in the box". If I couldn't instantly recall mixes and color-correction looks I would be completely lost. I just need a whole lot of time to figure out what's going on.

But the most important thing to me is to be able to get notes from other people. Because, sheesh. You just need those extra eyes and ears. I find that the notes I get back frequently lead me to places where I figure out things even better than (what I did before)+(the notes I just got).
And mixing in the box makes taking notes a dream. Guitar is too loud after 2 minutes? Easy. Just turn it down at the 2 minute mark. Dude is way to blue through all of act 2? Just dial in a bit more warmth in the color correction and walk away.
