There's the usual gear quotes of course (and I'm guilty of that too), but the number of great shots I've missed because I didn't have the right lens is dwarfed by the number of shots I've missed because I wasn't out taking pictures: Too hot, too cold, too dark, too bright, too tired. Too lazy. That's a poisonous one; too lazy.
