Oh no on no, you're doing it actually quite properly. You may want to consider switching to Grid Hotkeys http://www.sc2tutorials.com/files/Why_Using_The_GRID_Hotkeys_Is_Important.html

I typically reserve hotkeys 1-4 for macro purposes, skip 5 and use 6-8 for my army. But i'm sure plenty of folks do what you do :D
Usually what ends up happening is I derp everything together in one big group, then just cycle through them using tab or just ctrl click units and try not to fumble out the engagement lol.
I need moar practice.
Bind your base camera hotkey to a mouse button. It will cycle through multiple bases, jumping to each CC/Nexus/Hatch and helps immensely with macro.
Bind a Screen Location Hotkey to an available mouse button. Ctrl-Click to set then just Click to jump to.
Disable mouse scrolling, use scroll wheel drag instead it's more accurate and faster.
If you have a high performance gaming mouse, disable "enhance pointer precision" under the Mouse options in Windows, then adjust the DPI/Windows Sensitivity Ratio. I have a Razer mouse and I set mine to maximum DPI (8500) with the Windows setting to the 3rd bar, it makes the mouse very accurate at both slow and high speeds. I have the mouse sensitivity override in StarCarft disabled. If you use it, make sure the slider is at 50%. It's the best spot for it.
