On the last day of classes, I ask my students if they want to be really, really smart.  
Turns out, some of them do.  
Here's my advice:

1. Travel
2. Read books
3. Slow down and listen 

There are other things, of course, but these are the three that will work for anyone.  Trust me.

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for 

travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.
