in past few days, i made another majorish change to my emacs key set.

Now personal global commands start with F5. (used to be 【Ctrl+l】)
Personal mode-specific commands start with F8. (used to be 【Ctrl+e】)
(this is on Dvorak)

the gist in the change is that i now use single key sequence instead of combination.

over the years, i gradually switched almost all my most often used commands to single key or single key sequences, instead of combo keys or combo-key sequence.

if you type a whole lot, and experiencing hand discomfort, then single key is healthier than combination keys, even if it means a fraction of second slower to reach the F keys.

working in emacs now is like hunt'n'peck. LOL
