Mostly bouldering these days. I also enjoy sport. Once upon a time I was a trad climber.
Started in 2000. I lead hard 11 sport and boulder like a tall person who isn't good at bouldering. I've been known to send V5 inside and V4 outside. Some days I'm happy with a V2.
For me it's about mindfulness. You have to be mentally present and aware of everything. If you can't be focused take the day off. Or go to the gym as it's pretty fail safe :) Also, check, recheck, wear a helmet for ropes, and always spot for bouldering.
