Wow.... thats great! I have always wondered why in the recent era, everyone are so much into one subject and hardly know about other subjects. Cant we be like him? What is the difference? We are so much bonded by the virtual slavery caused by our monetary system, we are no longer free to do what we desire. Can we be like Leonarda da vinci?
To become like him first we have to free our mind. Its not as easy as it sounds. We may have become an expert in some aspect, which we use to earn & live. Not many people love their work or desire it so much. Without that interest, when we work,its like we are forced to work rather than doing it out of interest. And that makes a huge difference. I agree that Leonarda da vinci was a genius, he had achieved so much due to his passion, his interest, and his desire to learn & explore more in various subjects. We all also have this same desire somewhere within us (may be even buried very deep). We have to chase our dreams & desire to become a better person. Then may be, we might not realize that we have achieved something great but others around us may consider it in that way. Whenever we reach a goal which we desired for long, we will always find a new goal to keep us moving forward.
Ok after describing so much, what do i want to become? my desires? let me think.... i have as such, chased my dream of becoming a doctor & have become one now, but what all do i want to add on to it: humanitarian, free thinker, educator, futurist, philosopher, writer, painter, social activist, etc., the list is limitless.
It will be the same for everyone...So what are ur desires??? & all the best for you to reach your goals.
