Hi guys. I'm a mid-ish gold level terran player, and I've got a simple question.

Lately I've been finding it hard to progress, at all. I seem to have hit something of a standstill. I've identified that I really need to play faster; specifically, to avoid losing track of my macro when making engagements, but still be able to move my units around effectivly. Basically, I want to be able to be in several places at once, and I'm not sure how to go about doing it. Yes, I know about/use hotkeys, both for units/buildings and for locations on the map. And I'm pretty good about constantly building units, although I do slip sometimes. But what I'm looking for is the ability to do other stuff too, such as managing expansions, harassing, building more structures, all while making units and controlling my forces. That way, I can accomplish more, faster, and keep up with, (and beat, :P) the competition in this level.

In a nutshell, I know I need to work on playing faster, so I can accomodate more... stuff in a period of time. But I have no idea how to get that to happen. I've watched Day[9]'s Gold Level Analysis video, but it didn't *quite* address what I am looking for. Either that, or I didn't see it.

The bridge between mid gold to high gold, or high gold to platinum seems to be mostly based on playing speed, and I'm a bit stuck there. So what do you guys recommend?
