Leonardo da Vinci said," One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself."
📚 Book Summary:
This week's book is "How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci" by Michael Gelb.
You should read this book if you are looking for some valuable exercises to improve your creative mind. Leonardo's constant curiosity and willingness to focus on what he thought was most important made him successful.
One of my favorite take away from the book is this:
"Some people like to muse on philosophical conundrum "What is the meaning of life?" But more practical philosophers ask, "How can I make my life meaningful?"
✅ Actionable advice:
Write down the most valuable thing in your life on an index card. Put that index card in a visible place on your desk; for this upcoming week, ensure that thing stays on top of your mind.
