Many source-code development tools include a concept that's called "Code Templates". Basically, these are shortcuts to often used commands.
Of course, Database Workbench supports these as well - by using CTRL+J in any code editor window (like the SQL Editor or in the Stored Procedure Editor) you will see a drop down list like in the screen shot below:
The Code Template drop down list
As you can see, each "code template" consist of a "full code" (like "grant delete") and an abbreviation. This abbreviation can be entered in the code editor as well, if you then press CTRL+J, the abbreviation will expand to the full code immediately, without showing the drop down list.
Any additional cursor positions can be "picked up" using ALT+END.
As you can see, code templates can save you lots of time!
