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.

That's exactly what I need to do. I need to be able to know what does what faster. Now I still have to think about what's gonna happen when I change this or that setting. Practice plays a large part in it, I believe. But like I said, the sun really screwed up my thought process. I wasn't sure what to do on the fly. But I put what I know to use.
