I started a new job recently where I have to sink screws in a relatively straight line for long periods of time consistently

I started a new job recently where I have to sink screws in a relatively straight line for long periods of time consistently
I've been in the trades for a few years but this is a skill I've always been bad at
I'm wondering if anybody has any idea on how I can practice this in my free time or any tips that could make my it easier for me.

    Practice

    Also, you should be getting screws ready to go with your right hand while you're driving them with your left hand. There should always be a screw ready to go when you're done with the current one. Don't be afraid to slam the screw driver into the material with the screw, they're extremely durable machines. You can whack the screw with a hammer or the back of the driver to set it first, if it's in an awkward location.

      I didn't ask for any of this advice I know how to be efficient

      never give me advice again, yes I know i can slam the crew, often times I'm drilling holes through 3 sheets of metal into wood
      I'm doing this for about 10-12 hours a day sometimes
      The only thing I need to practice right now is being able to consistently hit nailers and purlins consistently and quickly while eyeballing

          Use a string line you retard

          Just use a laser level and a sharpie to mark the screw holes before you do it, impossible to go wrong

          Don't ask for advice if you're gonna shit on people for giving it to you

          all shit advice that would make the job take 3x longer

    a) get one of those feeding drills that has a strip of screws like a nail gun. You can go super quick

    b) use either a chalk line tool or a laser level tool to project your line on the surface
