    will or would?

    Hi,

    "People are often too obosessed with the best stratagies. Sometimes it would/will be a bless if you can/could even get the whole thing to move foward."

    as for would/will and can/could, which is more natural?

    Thanks!

    not a teacher

    Here's one way to put it more naturally, although there are other possibilities.
    People are often too obsessed with the best strategies. Sometimes it would be a blessing if you could just get the whole thing moving forward.

    So if I write it as "it will be a blessing if you can....", would that be unnatural or just have a different connotation to it?
