Note to anyone who wants to attempt rolling shots: If the sun it's directly over head, avoid taking highways that run east and west.
Start thinking about your time differently. Shooting nine cars and screwing up every shot is way worse than taking a test shot everytime the light changes.
You can learn to be fast at doing essential things. There are simply certain things that you shouldn't fail to make part of a routine. This will assure consistency and continuous improvement.
Shooting wildlife, I'll go back several times to the same spot and spend hours waiting for a particularly deer buck to show up, for instance. When the stars finally align I don't want to screw the shot up, but I have (only occasionally, thankfully) because I failed to recheck my settings.
