Ep. 199: How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci | with Michael J. Gelb

The Daily Helping

Today our expert guest is Michael J. Gelb, the world’s leading authority on applying genius thinking to personal and organizational development. Michael is a pioneer in the fields of creative thinking, leadership, innovation, and executive coaching. He’s a senior fellow at the Center for Humanistic Management and a member of the Advisory Board for Leading People and Organizations at the Fordham University Gabelli School of Business. He was honored as “Brain of the Year” (1999) by the Brain Trust Charity, including other recipients such as Steven Hawking, Garry Kasparov, and Edward De Bono. His 17 books have been translated into 25 languages and have sold over one million copies. When he read Viktor Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning” at 14 years old, Michael became inspired to find purpose in helping others find meaning in their lives. There was a lot of division and racial tension, and Michael was looking for solutions — both for the world and himself. Being a consultant for businesses was the farthest thing from his mind at first, but as he studied, it slowly dawned on him that business was the most powerful force in the world. And by focusing on that, he could make the most significant impact possible. Michael felt his life intersect with Leonardo da Vinci in several ways. Earlier in his life, his grandmother, a painter herself, introduce him to da Vinci. Later, he and a colleague would talk about him at length. More and more, he began telling stories about da Vinci. After being invited to speak in Florence, he pitched the idea of speaking about how to think like Leonardo da Vinci. That gave him six months to figure it out before he had to speak! You can do this process with any figure you admire, whether that’s a historical figure or someone you know. One of the most effective ways to develop yourself is to study others. If you want to follow the same steps Michael did to think like da Vinci, you have to ask the magic question: What are they trying to teach us? In the case of Leonardo da Vinci, when Michael read his work with that question in mind, he came up with: Endless curiosity: To get endless energy as an adult, you have to awaken your childlike imagination, marry it with your adult logic, and revitalize your curiosity. Try the “100 Questions” exercise. Give yourself around an hour, take out some sheets of paper, and without stopping to think, write 100 questions out. The hardest part is building up the energy to have a constant creative output. Once you practice it, coming up with ideas isn’t that hard. What’s hard is putting them into action and communicating them with other people. Demonstrate through your own experience: You must be an original thinker. The biggest challenge to independent thinking today is an overabundance of information. The best way to do this is to learn to think through essential ideas from at least three perspectives. Sharpen your senses, learn to appreciate beauty, and learn to make life more beautiful. When we appreciate beauty, we inform our creative expression. The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway “There is a source of creativity, a source of genius. It is the source of our awareness. If everyone just, at this moment, contemplates their response to the simple question, ‘Are you aware?’ Obviously, immediately, you say, ‘Yeah, oh course.’ And I say, ‘How do you know?’ Where do you go to look to notice that you are aware? There’s no place you go. You just are. And learning to access that source of awareness, which is always present — so when we talk about connecting with genius, it sounds like something you have to go through years of training and do all this — no, it’s present right now. It’s there for everybody. And then yes, there are ways to make ourselves more attuned to it, like the hundred questions, like the Qigong exercises I teach, like everything that’s in all the books. But the main point is it’s not something you don’t have that you have to get. It’s something you already have, and you just need to wake up to it.” -- Thank you for joining us on The Daily Helping with Dr. Shuster.

Lives of Leonardo da Vinci

Getty Art + Ideas

“He was a great artistic personality, crucial for the development, in some way, of what we think as the modern science. But he was not alone.” Leonardo da Vinci died more than 500 years ago, but he is still revered as a genius polymath who painted beguiling compositions like the Mona Lisa, avidly studied the natural sciences, and created designs and inventions in thousands of journal pages. Even during Leonardo’s lifetime, contemporaries marveled at the artist’s great skill and wide-ranging pursuits, but many also noted his perfectionism and difficulty completing projects. Since his death, the legends surrounding his life and personality have continued to grow. Today Leonardo’s story inspires novels and his work brings record-breaking prices, demonstrating his enduring relevance and mystique. In this episode, Getty curator Davide Gasparotto discusses early accounts of Leonardo’s life and how they shaped our understanding of the artist. Passages from these biographies were recently collected in the Getty Publications book Lives of Leonardo da Vinci. For images, transcripts, and more, visit getty.edu/podcasts.
