To make everything less frustrating, maybe just have one goal per round. i.e. I'm going to work on my reach back today. You said your mind was going a million miles an hour, if you slow down and concentrate on one thing, I think you'll be pleased with the results at the end of the round. After a few rounds, you've improved multiple aspects of your game, and it will all start to come together
If you can eliminate the "if" from your game, abidexterity is a good thing. If you throw shots because you feel like that's the right line, whether or not you're good enough to throw it, you've got an "if". "If I pull off this shot, it will work perfectly."
