This is especially true to street photography, but also in architecture, sports, and any other type of photography where things constantly evolve and happen all around you. You should make a habit of looking everywhere. If you stand in one spot and move only two steps, whole myriad of things changes: the perspective, angle, possibly light, shadows shift, time passes so new situations occur, reflections shift, people pass, and so on. You have to see everything to be able to capture that one thing worth photographing. There is a saying that goes "if you are good you will be lucky", but only via practice you can become better and better. Some of us are born with more natural talent than others, but every single professional will tell you the same thing - never stop studying, never stop trying more and more difficult things, never stop looking further than you think you should, never be satisfied with your current skill and knowledge. Be like water- keep moving, and while you move, look around you, because the best photos happen usually where others do not look.
