How to Become a Systems Thinker?

How does one become a systems thinker? After reading The Fifth Discipline and getting interested in the subject I have read a number of books; some of which are mind blowingly complex! How have other people become systems thinkers? Reading? Courses?
What are your tips on becoming a systems thinker... Thanks.

How Does One Become a Systems Thinker

Dear Gerhard, that everything is connected is something we forgot on our way to explore the world, but the knowledge is still in us. I can use this worldview in my theater work, because, without connection with everything around me, the plays would be very boring for actors and spectators. In fruitful team activities and creative processes we are all (organically) focused on system thinking I guess. (but system 'thinking' is, for me, a bit misleading, our heads are only a small part of us no?)The hidden connection from Fritjorf Capra can be helpful, and Kosmos, from Ervin Lazlo & Jude Currivan. And of course the 'ancient' knowledge of the tribal communities.
I hope I'm understandable enough, English is not my mother tongue. Have I nice weekend, Mia.
