A couple of random thoughts:- In very hectic cases, performing the WoW equivalent of triage can be very helpful: If you have to decide who to heal in a pinch, heal the person who the raid needs most. Obviously tanks are important, but so are other healers, top dps-ers, people with encounter-specific buffs/debuffs. - Don't forget yourself. This can be tricky, since you're tyring SO HARD to heal everyone that you forgot your own healthbar. It's embarrasing, but it can happen.- To know what person needs heals (or shields etc.), you need to have the correct information available and easy to sea. That not only means you can see who has aggro or debuffs in your unitframes, but it also means you have to know what is going on around you (and other people). Thankfully with things like Grid and Healbot it isn't that hard nowadays to have nice compact UIs.- Remember, gnomes, mages and rogues have a tendency to spontaneously combust. No amount of healing wills save an over-aggroing gnome.

Now why would you waste a perfectly good heal on a Gnome?

I used to have the problem with watching my own health. That problem solved itself when I started healing with Grid. Now I just become one of many healthbars that refuse to stay filled instead of having to look elsewhere for my own health.
