  1. Seek out challenging tasks. Attempt problems that don’t necessarily have solutions. (“Figure out how to make your dog fly” was a legitimate suggestion in the article.)

  3. Surround yourself with interesting things and people. Epstein suggests dinner parties and frequent trips to museums and galleries.
