Don't worry, we've all been there. I remember my first few batches. I had everything outlined on a calendar before I even actually brewed the beer! It's so exciting and there's so much anticipation it's hard to control it.
But rest assured, if you can be a little patient, your efforts will be rewarded. If you want wait 7 days, make it 10. If you can make it 10 days, make it 14. Do whatever you have to to give that beer the time it needs to finish properly and you will be rewarded when it is finally time to drink the fruits of your labor.
Rather than obsess over the beer you just brewed, get going on another one. It will not only take your mind off of the beer you have fermenting, but it will get your pipeline going, which you'll surely be thankful for once you taste how great your beer is.
