Should I be driving a car at night?

E.L. Doctorow described writing this way:
It’s like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.

Should I make a list of all my revisions, or should I just keep going through them one by one as I have without a big list? I am following cryptic marginal notes from my advisor on a draft I gave him, plus a few emails he sent me. I am feeling compelled to make a list tonight. This will not help my word count any, I wonder if this is a sneaky form of procrastination. What do you think?
