[CQ-Contest] And now for something completely different......

Oh, that's easy...

"Excuse me, how do you get to Carnegie Hall?"
"Practice, practice, practice!"

Even the most naturally skilled of us needs to operate to hone our abilities
and keep them at peak performance.  It comes back quickly, thankfully, but
it's pretty tough to know that you CAN do it but you've got to work the rust
out first!

For example... Lot's of people can run the 100 yard dash in just a few
seconds.  How many can do it, without lots of practice, in pads, right after
intercepting a football, and with a whole bunch of big hairy guys in red
uniforms chasing them?

For several weeks this reflector has been consumed with issues and
insinuations regarding cheating rascals who don't want their logs viewed by
Aunt Emma, cheaters who wait until the last second to submit their log, and
other similar underhanded characters.

How about a return to the purpose of the reflector, helping us all become
better skilled at the art of Radiosport.

So I pose this question to the gathered multitude.....

What single factor do you  credit with being the MOST important to your
success as a contester?  (The "factor" can be a skill, a station engineering
accomplishment, an "accident of location", or whatever.)
