I have CS4, not CS6, but I'm sure they're the same in this regard.
The answer is "No" if I understand your question correctly. You want
the drop-down of "Image>Adjustment" to remain open at all times to
choose the adjustment in that drop-down.
What can speed up your work, though, is learning the keyboard
shortcuts. Levels = Control + L, Curves = Control + M, etc.
However, when you use the Adjustments drop-down, or the shortcuts like
this, you are making all of those adjustments to the same layer. If
you're into your fourth adjustment, and figure out that you don't like
your third, you have to delete that layer and start over.
If you use the Adjustment Layers icon at the bottom, you create a new
layer for each adjustment, and can go back and change that adjustment
in that layer.
