I was listening to Dr. Wayne Dyer’s audio ‘Wisdom Of Ages’ where he briefly discusses great personalities of all times. He was speaking of one of the most intelligent, sharpest, most curious and most versatile minds in the world.
Leonardo da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519): Italian painter, sculptor, architect, mathematician, musician & scientist & surely one of the greatest intellects in the history of mankind. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.
Balance, as we all know, is at the crux of everything. Without it, everything will fall down.
Da Vinci said this about ‘balance’ ages ago:
“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer.
Since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose power of judgment.
Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller, and more of it can be taken in at a glance, and a lack of harmony or portion is more readily seen.”
To avoid being consumed by anything, walk away from it.
Try to do without cell phones, Blackberrys and iPhones once in a while. It surely helps.
Follow your ambition, work at whatever you need to work on, but do enjoy the journey.
Dare to dream.
Follow your passion.
