Have all ingredients needed near your stove before you start frying.
For fried rice purpose, use 1 cup of water to cook 1 cup of rice. Try using less water to cook rice than you normally do. Otherwise you will have mushy rice that can't be fried.
Use a big wok / pan to fry your rice. This is to prevent overcrowding.
When using the cast iron wok, always bring the wok to smoking point. Then lower the heat and add oil. This will ensure the wok to be non-stick.
To get the "wok hei" fragrance (breath of wok), the wok needs to be heated till smoking and then the rice tossed repeatedly in order to 'smoke' the rice.
