Read important books
C.S. Lewis wrote a satire book where an elderly devil teaches young one on how to win “patients”:
You should always try to make the patient abandon the people or food or books he really likes in favour of the ‘best’ people, the ‘right’ food, the ‘important’ books. — The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
This was 75 years ago, but somehow it feels like 2017.
