I definitely agree with your strategy. While critical reasoning arguments can typically be written out in the form of premises/conclusion (and this can actually help), it is generally not an efficient use of your time to do this. I recommend only taking notes when creating a brief roadmap (5-7 words/paragraph) on a reading comprehension passage. To write out notes for every CR question is too cumbersome, and it takes away from your focus. Pacing is the biggest issue that test takers have on the GMAT, and thus you need to plan accordingly. The only reason that I recommend writing notes for paragraphs in RC passages is that this will actually end up SAVING YOU TIME, not burning it, because it helps you figure out where in the passage to look in order to answer detail questions (rather than having to reread the whole passage for every question).
Pacing, pacing, pacing
I hope this helps!!!
