- Be around smarter people.
- Read. Fiction and Non-Fiction.
On a few occasions the past couple of months, I’ve been the dumbest guy in the room. After getting past the awkward feeling of “I’ve the dumbest guy in the room”, it’s enjoyable to shut-up and learn. That’s #1 and #2 from above.
Lastly, I find that reading fiction, just as much as non-fiction, expands my view of the world. A healthy balance of both in a reading diet feels right.
