John Nunn coined the phase "Loose pieces drop off", well! If he didn't actually coin this phrase, he borrowed it and used it a lot in his books. Sometimes we look at a position and see a lot going on and we are unable to focus on the key tactical elements. Take a look at this position for instance. Don't look at tactics first, but look for weaknesses in piece coordination. You should notice something hanging in White's position and then it's easy to find the move.
