Da Vinci’s To-Do List

November 24, 2011

If you look at what Leonardo Da Vinci created in his lifetime, you’d have a very impressive list. Just two of his paintings, The Last Supper and Mona Lisa, represent masterpieces. But that leaves out many of his other accomplishments in a variety of disciplines.

Da Vinci would carry a notebook with him so that he could easily notate things he wanted to complete. I’m a big fan of to-do lists, but my lists pale in comparison to his. Seriously, have you ever wanted the calculate the size of a city or draw that city? He did. Granted, I’m sure Milan was much smaller 500 years ago.

I challenge each of you to keep a list of the things you want to do. What goes on that list is completely up to you. If there are any interesting items, please feel free to share. Regardless of what you add to the list, I hope you have the drive to continue educating yourself as did Da Vinci. By learning the software tools you use, you’ll be able to product projects in less time and make more money. That extra money could come in handy for some of the things on your list.

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a time for gathering with friends and family to give thanks for all the blessings we have in life. I want to thank you for being a loyal reader! Wherever you are today, I hope it is a special day for you.
