1.) Open RAW

Sorry but you then are using the "default" preset, which itself is actually a preset but using what Adobe offers as a starting point.  If you redo the same settings with each image it is better to use a preset to change tone curve severity, camera profile and get vibrance and clarity to where you usually end up having them!

2.) Look at image
3.) Do what needs to be done based on my vision
4.) Export to PS and finish.

No, I'm not being snide. To me, presets are just rules waiting to be broken.

they are starting points.  There's no point in changing settings each time before you begin developing!
