In my case it's documentation. Currently I'm coding in my spare time and using a Wiki (WikiMedia) to document the development process. The ease of adding documentation through a Wiki has been very instructive for me. Especially for stuff I'd usually fix once then later forget, and also for keeping track of research. I'm not sure though of how much of the actual application documentation I want to bring into the Wiki.

Some general habits for becoming a better programmer would be to
discuss about the code,
read,
Pay attention to patterns by reading and following senior professionals work,
Review (criticize) code,
Share,
Co-create,
Collaborate in what ever environments the programmer is working.

All this is similar to what literature students do as an established practice. Making this "approach" well known in the novice programmer world can avoid some confusion.

In other words there is no short cut to be a better programmer!
