Reducing calculations ... recommended?

As a relatively new Filemaker convert I have found that use of calculations without careful planning can lead to performance issues, especially in lists of job or quotes for example, where I'm referencing quite a few fields in the calculation.


Is there a common approach that more experienced developers use such as 'always' scripting calculations or sometimes according to certain scenarios. Any advice would be appreciated as I would like to adopt best practice but the shortcut of advice from more experienced developers would save me a lot of trial and error.


Thank you in advance.
