Book Review – Leonardo Da Vinci by W. Isaacson

Planet, Universe, Vitruvian Man

Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in. – Leonardo da Vinci

After reading the bestsellers books of Walter Isaacson on Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein, I came to appreciate how talented Mr Isaacson is as an author.

In this magnificent biography of Leonardo Da Vinci, Mr Isaacson shows how, from Leonardo’s genius skills, we can get inspired, develop our potential, discover with passionate curiosity, careful observation, and imagination.

I took the following excerpts from the book as a reminder of what Leonardo Da Vinci did during his lifetime as well as the skills and great ideas from this amazing person. I hope you enjoy it just as much.

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (15 April 1452 – 2 May 1519), more commonly Leonardo da Vinci or simple Leonardo was an Italian Renaissance polymath whose areas of interest included invention, drawing, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history and cartography.

Recondition Your Body To a New Mindset

circuits of the brain with different words

The body is very smart, it cannot tell the difference between a factual situation or an imagined thought.

Thoughts that activate emotional responses in the body may appear so quick that before the mind has had time to articulate them, the body has already delivered them with an emotion, and that emotion has turned into a reaction.

Have you ever had fearful or worrisome thoughts? Most of us have experienced them at some point. When we feel we are in ‘danger’, our heart beats fast, muscles contract, breathing becomes rapid. But the danger might be only mental fiction; we may be lying in a warm and comfortable bed at night.

To take total control of our mind, we need to recondition our body to a new mindset. We need to create a training routine for our brain so that body and mind work together.

In my previous post, Can You Use Your Mind to Create Your Reality? I shared how our brain is in regular communication with our body. The mind is continuously monitoring the way the body is feeling.

Therefore, if we focus on negative thinking, we create our unhappiness, but unhappiness is never the situation, it is only the way we think about it.

Be Aware of Your Thoughts and Emotions

How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One – Book Review

Are you looking for a sure method to move you toward what you intuitively know is imaginable possible? Have you been looking for ways to manifest everything you desire with clear instructions?

For years I have been reading many personal development books. Thanks to those books I have learned great positive-thinking techniques. However, my past efforts to make any lasting change in my life – physical, emotional and spiritual – have fallen short of the ideal of myself that I imagined.

I found Dr. Joe Dispenza, author of Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself – How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One, on YouTube.

Dr Dispenza is a renowned author, speaker, researcher, and chiropractor who combines the fields of quantum physics, neuroscience, brain chemistry, biology, and genetics. He featured in the award-winning film What the Bleep Do We Know and has been educating people about the functions of the human brain.

I happened to choose a video where he was talking about helping people who overcame significant health conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis. Sadly, one of my sons has this disease, so I started to pay close attention to what he had to say.

Will AI Replace Humans or Become Their Partners​?

Are you exciting about what Artificial Intelligence can do for humanity or are you concerned?

I just finished reading “The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson. At the end of the book he talks in more detail about Artificial Intelligence which I found very interesting.

I like very much Isaacson writing style. I thoroughly enjoyed reading his exclusive biography of Steve Jobs. It gave me a real understanding of Job’s personality and achievements.

I enjoyed The Innovators book because it covers both the technology and the people behind the technology.

Isaacson manages to provide a good balance about the endless debates about who did what, when, where, who “borrowed” ideas from whom, and who deserves the amount of credit for different things.

Believing in Yourself and Taking Responsibility

The top regret that most of us have is not having the courage to live the life we are destined to live. Deep inside we know we have a purpose, we know there is something higher than us, but most of us don’t allow ourselves that freedom.

We seem to live the life that we inwardly feel we should live. The calling is there but the idea that we can’t do them or we shouldn’t keep dominating our lives.

FOLLOW YOUR INTUITION
