Here is the updated version for Premiere Pro CS6.
1. Change your Scratch Disk.
By default, Scratch Disks follow the Project. (Users/Documents/Adobe/PremierePro)
You do not want to do this. You want to put your media on to a separate drive. Read this for different strategies. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/662972
2. Make Shortcuts for frequently used Workspaces. I use Control + U to reset current layout.
I use Command+number for my favorite layouts. (color correction, effects)
3. Double-Clicking on a bin will float it. If you Option click on the bin, it will open in a tab. Command click will open in place (can change behavior in Preferences)
