How to Get More Things Done

From Leonardo da Vinci, one of the great masters of all time, we learn just how important it is to take action. He observed from nature that, “Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold weather becomes frozen” and that “inaction saps the vigor of the mind.” 

Wow! A mind with no vigor does not sound very appealing. It puts a new perspective on the “urgency of doing.” No one ever accused da Vinci of being lazy. Maybe the fact that he stayed active up to his last days on earth is why is mind was so sharp and alive.

How do you actively apply what you know on a daily basis? Where can you do more instead of just talking about doing more?

Want to learn to be as active and creative as Leonardo?  We do.  That's why we love the book by Michael Gelb How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci: Seven Steps to Genius Every Day
