You and others make things way too complicated.
It's exactly like swinging a hammer to pound a nail or a closer analogy is swinging an axe into a tree.
Any adult should have used a hammer at least one time. Do you focus on swinging the hammer head or the handle? Are you trying to strike the nail, the tree or paying attention to the swing?
