Not Developing Your Pieces
One intriguing aspect of Chess is how each army starts a game with its Pieces in relatively Weak positions - they certainly aren't on squares that maximize their potential and respective powers of movement.
By leaving your Pieces on their starting squares and failing to develop them, you severely handicap your ability to thwart any attack, directed at your King.
A secondary consequence is you handicap your ability to defend your other Pieces.
