A good idea is to try to apply techniques from other chapters to a particular data set in order to see what else might work. This could be anything, from simply applying a different transformation to an input feature to using a completely different model from another chapter. As a final note, we should mention that creating polished and presentable graphics in order to showcase the findings of a data analysis is a very important skill, especially in the workplace. While R's base plotting capabilities cover the basics, they often lack a polished feel.
