One thing that isn't mentioned yet is to read other peoples programs.

I'm subscribed to the Hackage RSS feed[1]. I tend to read (at least)
the package page of every package that gets uploaded to hackage.
Whenever an interesting package comes a long I dig a little deeper.
First I try to understand what problem the package is trying to solve.
Then I see how the package is structured into modules. Finally when I
notice some interesting module or function I read its documentation
(which unfortunately almost never exists) and source code and try to
understand how and why it is being implemented like it is.
