This doesn’t mean quit your job and take your lifetime vacation. It simply means explore the world daily. There are many places you haven’t seen in your city or many places locally or just outside it. Plan your evening with your friends and explore these areas or if you are a lone wolf, go alone. The traveller’s soul is never satisfied but exploring every single thing, a restaurant or a museum in your city might help a bit.
