Living Creatively like Leonardo da Vinci

Part of the Creative Thinking For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

Leonardo da Vinci is widely regarded as one of the most creative individuals of all time, and the principles he lived by are recorded faithfully in his journals. They provide an inspiring guide to living a satisfyingly creative life.

To apply Leonardo da Vinci’s seven principles in your life, follow these principles:

  • Curiosity: Be insatiably curious and learn continuously. Keep a journal of your findings.

  • Demonstration: Test your knowledge through experience. Be persistent and learn from your mistakes.

  • Sensation: Continually refine your senses as a means of enlivening your experience.

  • Ambiguity: Embrace ambiguity, contradiction and paradox. It’s okay to live with uncertainty and conflicting ideas.

  • Art/science: Balance the arts and sciences. Use logic and imagination.

  • Sensuality: Cultivate grace, fitness and poise. Perfect mind–body co-ordination and ambidexterity.

  • Connection: Recognise and appreciate the interconnectedness of everything.
