Sharpen your five senses, and live.
Below is the most read article on Forbes last week.
“3 Easy Ways You Can Develop An Awareness Of Current Events (And Be Better At Your Job)”
1. Read (work toward a diversified knowledge of world news)
2. Engage with a variety of other people (get feedback from your friends about how they see these facts)
3. Think intentionally about what have learned and how it applies or impacts your work (use the above in your work)
Well, that’s probably right, but it’s boring and too much like an honor student.

It’s enough to say, “Good workers get lots of input outside of their work!”
Travel the world, and avoid tourist destinations. Meet many people and speak with them. Read books that others don’t read.
