The fact that not making your initial tickets is penalized means you actually have to think about completing them, but otherwise, the strategy of just drawing cards for the first half the game and then trying to complete the longest connections will generally do you fine... unless everyone is trying to connect the same cities.

I've also gotten tired of Ticket to Ride in the same way I have Puerto Rico - I'd never ask to bring it to the table anymore but am happy to play if someone invites me.
