da Vinci's 7 Principles

Sometimes, you have to start out, learning from those who came before us...

da Vinci's 7 Principles

  1. Curiosit√° - An insatiably curious approach to life and an unrelenting quest for continuous learning.
  2. Dimostrazione - A commitment to test knowledge through experience, persistance, and a willingness to learn from mistakes.
  3. Sensazione - The continual refinement of the senses, especially sight, as the means to enliven experience.
  4. Sfumato (Literally "Going up in smoke") - A willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and uncertainty.
  5. Arte/Scienza - The development of the balance between science and art, logic and imagination. "Whole-Brain" thinking.
  6. Corporalita - The cultivation of grace, ambidexterity, fitness, and poise.
  7. Connessione - A recognition of and appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things and phenomena. Systems thinking.
