Best bit of advice ever:

Pick ONE area and focus and practice it til you perfect it

Yup. Especially with mechanics.

Ie: Focus on never getting supply blocked. Never floating money, etc.
Then it becomes nuances. Focus on getting your gasses not too early, not too late. Focus on expanding at the right time, etc.

Once your mechanics are solid, then you focus on simple things. Your build should be adaptable.

For example. As a terran, on shattered, I go reactored hellion FE into 3 tank-marine push. If I see he's still on two base and massing, I pull back and turtle. If he grabbed a third, I push. If hes going spire and droned a lot, I push. Try to develop a flow to your play so that you can, based on what your opponent does, jump into your next phase. Have this planned at least till your third base.

Yup, no worries there. Grind out a whole day on ladder to get used to the meta-game and you'll be kicking butt in no time.

THis makes me sad. Life, work, family. There is just not enough time in the day.
