leonardo da vinci.

The ability to make connections across disciplines — art and sciences, humanities and technology — is a key to innovation, imagination, and genius.

That’s what Water Isaacson (and Steve Jobs) have said about Leonardo da Vinci.

Some people mention that Leonardo was muscular, and had remarkable physical strength. I can think of other characters, like Yukio Mishima, who believed that a Samurai should be well-knowledged in the art of poetry, while taking care of his body, working out.

Isaacson also mentions that, if Da Vinci was born in this day and age (I’m writing this in 2023), he would most likely be diagnosed with ADHD. He was easily distracted, left a lot of unfinished paintings, and got bored frequently, especially if the project he was working on became routine.
