Real-time Strategy games often requires you to strive to do things as quickly and easily as possible, in as short as steps as possible to save time. Time that is saved can be applied to other duties which will allow you to play much better overall. StarCraft has many hot keys which allow you to do things much faster than clicking the mouse on the proper button. The more you use Hot Keys, the faster you will find you get things done. In addition to the standard Hot Keys for moving and attacking, the Protoss have many Race specific Hot Keys you might want to learn.
