When I first learned photography, I carried a little Post-it around with the camera that said:

Remember to ask yourself: What is your subject here?  How can I emphasize it?  How can I simplify it?

After I’d been shooting for a while, I carried a different note that said: 

Remember to take the lens cap off.  Wait until something interesting happens, then photograph it.
