Be a Photocat!
The big cats spend most of their time for searching, tracking, waiting and observing, but not hunting. For getting the prey, they save all their energy for the perfect moment. Likewise, for getting our dream shots, what would we do? We cannot just keep shooting without thinking, even though our camera's speed is as fast as cheetah's.
With my camera and my flesh lenses (my eyes), I would spend time to think, to learn, to plan, to wait and to observe for getting my dream pictures.
And, I'm still observing.
